As a retired longtime secretary in the chancery office of the archdiocese, I would like to add information to the final paragraph of the coverage of Archbishop John Quinn (“Archbishop John R. Quinn: A clear and powerful voice,” July 13, 2017). The archbishop had many secretaries, including Sharon Suhr, a lovely woman. When Archbishop Quinn began his service as archbishop in San Francisco in 1977, his secretary was the now deceased Helen Quinan, a longtime secretary to archbishops, who stayed a couple of years “to break in” the archbishop. She was followed by the now late Julie Petrilli, who served as Archbishop Quinn’s secretary for more than a decade before her retirement. Julie was followed by Sharon Suhr who worked for the archbishop until his retirement.
