She was a lifelong resident of Newark, graduating from Newark High School, continuing on to receive an associates degree from Cedar Crest College. At 50-years-old, she returned to college and received a MS from St. John Fisher College which enabled her to work as a school psychologist at North Rose-Wolcott Central School District for 15 years until her retirement.

Previously, in the mid-70’s, Joan was an entrepreneur and owner of Especially for You Florist in Newark, a very successful and popular local business.

She was blessed with many great friends and a loving family, and she will be missed by all those who loved her.

She is survived by her five children, Mary (Leon) Maiolo of Canandaigua, Amy (Henry Lawson) of Brighton, Matthew (Marina) of Sodus Point, Andrew (Cynthia) of Madison, Ala., Michael of Rochester; eleven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
