Joanne Carney

November 4, 1954 — December 26, 2023

 

Loving daughter, sister and aunt, Joanne Carney, aged 69, passed away on December 26, 2023 ending her long and well fought battle with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease. 

 

Joanne was a devoted Catholic born in New York City on November 4, 1954 to Edward and Eileen Carney. She received her Bachelors in English Literature from St. John’s University in Queens, New York. Joanne enjoyed a lifetime of diverse and interesting experiences. She worked for the FBI, the national parks system, and attended culinary school and used her cooking skills at an assisted living facility in Wisconsin. Joanne was very athletic and loved to be outdoors and while she lived on the east coast she especially loved swimming in the ocean at Jones Beach. She had a love of wildlife which included caring for her dog, Seamus. 

 

She leaves behind seven siblings: Edward (Arlene), Thomas, Francis (Barbara), Jeanne, Nicholas, Michael (Lynn) and Teresa along with nine nieces and nephews: Damien (Shree), Philip (Allison), Keith (Michelle),  Jillian (Jose), Andrew (Alexandra), Shannon (Tyler), Meaghan (Matthew), Ryan (Mutsumi), and Bridget and seven grand nieces and nephews: Miles, Nola, Thomas, Peter, Charlotte, Luke, and Aurora. 

 

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the angels at Arbor View Skilled Nursing Home for their years of loving care of Joanne and especially to those who were there during her last days and provided such compassion and support that was truly a blessing and a comfort.
