She loved reading (never having enough books), knitting, country music and most recently never missed an episode of Ghost Hunters. She looked forward to her weekly outings with Hospice volunteer Pat, her daily 7pm evening calls from longtime friend Jeanne, regular calls and visits from family and friends and watching her cat Fancy and dog Dottie play together. Joan was a lifetime member of the ASPCA and The National Humane Society. She was a beautiful & loving mother and friend who never turned her back on anyone in need.

The family offers their sincere thanks and gratitude to the many nurses and aids of the Rensselaer Hospice Organization and their many volunteers for all their generosity and kindness during her time with hospice.
