Joan had a very large and loving family that she treasured and enjoyed spending time with. She had a very outgoing personality and could make friends with almost anyone in the blink of an eye. Her favorite foods were pizza and ice cream (especially grape nut!). She lived almost all of life in Arlington but also enjoyed spending time in the summer at the family cottage on Lake Kanasatka in NH and her numerous trips to Ireland to visit with extended family and friends.In lieu of flowers donations in Joan's memory to: Care Dimensions Hospice, 78 Liberty St., Danvers, MA 01923, would be appreciated.
