They also leave behind 3 grandchildren Carrie Young, Jonathan (Sara) Boyce, Brad (Holly) Weir and adopted grandson John Gregg. The family grew larger and they were blessed with 7 great-grandchildren, Kendal Young, Olivia Young, Lainey, Kailey and Hannah Boyce, Rowan and Charleigh Willow.
Joan was predeceased by her parents John and Florence Kelly of Greenwich; her twin brother James, Eugene, Gerald, Robert; sister Marie Salley; best friend who she loved like a sister Pat Duchaine.
In addition to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren she is survived by her sisters Mary Lois Adamson, Betty Caruthers, and Catherine Bain; brothers Richard and William; several nieces and nephews.
In Mom’s younger years she worked at the local dress Factory and Golden Fleece Papermill, after her children were grown, she went on to work at the Greenwich Kmart for many years but mostly she enjoyed staying home to raise her family. Mom was known for her great love of baking and cooking and could whip up the best pie crust without measuring a thing. Many family memories are around the kitchen table watching her bake and cook. Mom also loved to crochet and give her beautiful creations as gifts. She loved to collect Angel figurines, visit local casinos, watch golf on TV and was the Yankees #1 fan. Her greatest joy of all was having her children, and grandchildren all together for family gatherings.
Mom, Grandma, and Great-Grandma we will miss you dearly and our lives will be forever changed without you here, we find great comfort in knowing that you and Dad are together again watching down on us always and we will keep your memories tucked close to our hearts.
