Quinn was born in Savannah, Georgia to Lt. Gen. William Wilson "Buffalo Bill" Quinn (November 1, 1907-September 11, 2000) and his wife Sara Bette Williams (January 27, 1918-September 26, 2004).
Both are buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Her parents also had two other children, Quinn's younger sister Donna and younger brother William Jr.
Lt. Gen. Quinn was an intelligence officer and played a key role in the transition of the United States's intelligence service from the Office of Strategic Services to the Central Intelligence Agency. From 1964 to 1966 he was commander of the 7th Army in Germany.
For many years the Quinns maintained a residence on Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C., where Bette Quinn was known for her cooking and entertaining. Sally Quinn reports in CC Goldwater's HBO film Mr. Conservative that Senator Barry Goldwater spent much time with the Quinns, often staying at their home, after his wife decided to remain in Arizona instead of coming out to D.C. while Congress was in session.
Quinn graduated from Smith College in 1963.
Quinn is married to Benjamin C. Bradlee, the former editor of the Washington Post, her former boss. Quinn and Bradlee have one child, [Josiah] Quinn Crowninshield Bradlee who was born in 1982 when she was 41. They have acknowledged that he was born with velo-cardio-facial syndrome, and Quinn wrote of her son's learning problems and attendance at special schools in her 2006 article "What My Son Taught Me About God."
On her mother's side, she is a descendant of William Williams, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
