Quinn “Twinkles” Marie Kougl was born on November 11, 2015 to William and Justine Kougl of Busby, MT and formerly of Timber Lake, joining sister Nora and brother Cody. She was born with Treacher Collins Syndrome (TCS) which was both a blessing and a curse. Never a day went by without concern over her airway and health due to TCS. This airway issue caused a multitude of surgeries, and blocked her airway completely and she was unable to be saved despite the best efforts of her parents, ambulance and flight crew. She left this earth on December 17, 2018 at the age of 3.

Quinn was known by many through her family, friends, and the Tour of Kindness teaching talks she did with her family, to teach others about acceptance and differences. Her personality lit up any room she walked into, her eyes were soft and gentle, and her attitude was tough as nails. She had a twinkle in her eye always, and no one ever knew what she was planning next as she always was up to something with her siblings.

Quinn and Nora loved to play in the fort and barn with Pancho the pony, ride double on Nora’s big-girl bike and had an on-going battle over whose dog Holly is. Cody and Quinn had a bond that you wish all little sisters could have with their older brother. Going on dirt bike rides, sledding, and drawing together were some of their favorites. Quinn showed Nora and Cody how important it is to be unique, be yourself, and a little attitude (much to their parents’ enjoyment) and they taught her how to love.
