Joan's first and most important job was being a generous and loving mother. Once most of her children were grown, she furthered her education and became a nurse at the Veterans Hospital in Elsmere. During her 10 years at the VA Hospital she accomplished many things, including becoming a Clinical Applications Coordinator.
She enjoyed many hours volunteering at the Skating Club of Wilmington where her daughters, grandchildren, and sister ice skate and coach.
Joan was a dedicated parishioner of Corpus Christi Parish. She spent her time volunteering in many activities, including the school's lunch and volleyball programs.
She is preceded in death by her two daughters, Mary Theresa and Sarah. Joan is survived by her daughters, Kathy, Megan Thorne and her husband, Andrew, Emily, Annie, and Tess; her sister and brother-in-law, Kathy and Marty Metzler; her grandchildren, Elizabeth and Jameson Thorne, Sophie Walsh, and a fourth grandchild arriving in the fall.
