She was an active member of the IHM Senior Group and the 21st Ward Senior Group where she met lifelong friends who will miss her dearly. While cheering and following hers kids and grand-kids sports teams she became an avid Phillies and Eagles fan, never missing a game and always ready for a victory party. Joan loved the shore, Christmas time and all its carols. She will always be known for crocheting special Christmas stockings for all family members. The one thing we will always remember is her birthday calls and song, never missing a one or a beat.
