Joan T. McCormick Obituary
Joan Theresa Dowling McCormick of Hingham, passed away on August 5, 2018, after a long illness. She was born October 15, 1929, in New York City. A gifted student, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Fordham Universitys School of Education and later earned an MA at Columbia Universitys Teachers College, where she was elected to Phi Lambda Theta. She eventually taught history and served as a Guidance Counselor at James Monroe High School in the Bronx. On a lucky Labor Day weekend in 1955, at Spring Lake, New Jersey, she met Bill McCormick, who was General Sales Manager at WOR Radio. After marrying in 1957, Bills career took them to Boston in 1960, where he eventually formed companies that owned and operated radio stations. In 1977, Joan returned to work at a speakers' bureau and she too eventually formed her own company, representing such prominent individuals as Henry Kissinger, Martha Stewart and Neil Armstrong. Joan and Bill raised their family in Weston. In 2005, she moved into Linden Ponds in Hingham. Her husband, her parents, and her brothers, Edward and John, predeceased her. She is survived by her children, Jean Marie of Alexandria, VA, Patricia (Charles) DiGiovanna of Cincinnati, Joanie Hosp of Cohasset, William of Weymoth; grandchildren, Shane and Meghan DiGiovanna, Reid and Samantha Hosp. Donations in her honor may be made to the EB Research Partnership (ebresearch.org). Services are private.
