Joan was a resident of Lawrenceville for the past 66 years. She graduated from Cathedral High School in Trenton.

Joan retired in 1993 from Bedens Brook Country Club as a waitress with long-time friend and neighbor Sarah Keegan. She was proud of her trip to Ireland with Sarah and kissing the Blarney stone, remembering it fondly. Joan was a regular at various Bingo spots, enjoyed bus trips to Atlantic City and vacations out west with her sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law with visits to many National Parks. She was Girl Scout Leader to her girls when they were in elementary school.
