Joan was an amazing woman and will be missed by all who had the chance to know her. She was born in Syracuse, New York on 10/30/39 to Marjorie and John Miller. Joan graduated from Bloomfield College in 1961. Shortly after graduation she married Don Calder on June 24th, 1961. They recently celebrated their 56th anniversary.

Joan earned her Master's Degree is Social Work from Fordham University. She worked as Social Worker for Children's Aid and Adoption Society and was the Executive Director for the League for Family Services.

Joan is survived by her husband Don, children Don Calder and his wife Kelli, Jeanette Calder Burhans and her husband Dave, grandchildren Heather and Grace Burhans and Emily and Will Calder, brother John Miller and sister-in-law Sue Miller, and several nieces and a nephew.
