Sad News

I’m writing this post today with a very heavy heart.  Paula’s husband, JR, passed away suddenly on Saturday morning from an apparent heart attack.  It was JR’s 60th birthday, so their 3 daughters and 2 grandchildren were all home visiting.

JR was a wonderful man that was devoted to his wife and family.  Fun-loving and always quick with a joke, JR was also a fantastic chef (not his profession).  He will be missed by so many and for so many reasons.

JR and the girls

Please keep Paula and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Until next time,

Mary Ellen

To allow some time for Paula’s family and the Red Crinoline family to mourn and heal, shipping from Red Crinoline Quilts will be suspended until further notice.  We thank you in advance for your patience.

  1. Although our hearts are heavy and the void of our loved one is felt… I celebrate JR’s Home going remembering the Husband, the father, the grandfather, the son-in-law and the Man he was. I always felt welcome not only as an employee (of the BB/RCQ) but as part of the Barn’s family. I too witnessed his quick since of humor and enjoyed his wonderful cooking. So I lift up my prayers today for Mrs. Paula and the family, that you since the peace that surpasses all of OUR understanding and are comforted in knowing by faith that God has promised us that we WILL all be together again one day. God Bless You!
    Love, Jackie
