Joan was a graduate from Woodrow Wilson High School where she was nicknamed “Brownie”. She started her career at New Jersey Bell Telephone Company. She was then employed as a postal worker for 25 years. Joan was happiest when going to the hair dressers with her best friend Betty, taking trips to the casinos in Atlantic City, and having a nice good book to read (with a cigarette and Diet Pepsi on the side.) She was a selfless and generous woman who never had a bad thing to say about anyone. Her laugh was contagious and will be remembered forever by all who knew her.
