Joan was a longtime parishioner of Saint Aloysius Church in Oaklyn. Raised in Brooklawn, she graduated from Gloucester City High School Class of 1949.  Joan loved to bowl, tap dance, travel and spend time at Brigantine beach.  She also visited Ireland three times.  There was nothing she loved more than being a grandmother and spending time with her family. 

The best things in life aren’t things at all; they are memories we have and the experiences we’ve lived.
