'Sopranos' actress dies at 46

Denise Borino-Quinn, who played the wife of a mob boss in the award-winning HBO series "The Sopranos," has died of cancer at 46.

Borino-Quinn died Wednesday at Morristown (New Jersey) Memorial Hospital, according to Farmer Funeral Home. A funeral Mass was held Saturday.

"The Sopranos," which ran from 1999 to 2007, told the story of mobster Tony Soprano and a colorful cast of bumbling criminals.

Borino-Quinn, who said in an interview that she got the part in a 2000 open casting call, played Ginny Sacramoni, married to Johnny Sacramoni. An HBO character bio described Ginny as "Rubenesque."

The actress married her late husband, Luke Quinn, in 2005.

    I am Denise Borino-Quinn's cousin. For those of you who cared so much about her, I can tell you that she has been battling stomach cancer quietly for almost two years. She did not die alone. She was very much loved by her father and brothers and many other family members and friends. She was given the best of care and love until her passing.Our family also lost another member(cousin) unexpectedly on Thursday (9/28). We are currently in preparations for his funeral. I just didn't want those of you who cared for Denise to be misguided to think that she was alone. Thanks.

    Who cares? What's wrong with u people? What if it was someone in your family u loved who died of any kind of cancer? Would u want other people talking like u did? Who cares? I do, morons! I am ashamed your parents raised monsters like u. If I find someone in my family like u, u can be sure he/she will be flogged! U should have compassion for the dead's family. It'll be your turn one day, stupid heartless morons!
