MONTESANTI, Joanne Teresa, born Jan. 28, 1933 in Altoona, PA, passed away into the loving arms of God Saturday morning, June 29, 2013 surrounded by her family. Best wife, best mother, best friend, is survived by her loved and loving husband; four loved and loving children; six grandchildren; one great-grand-child; and three daughters-in-law. A child prodigy and graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, she spent her lifetime giving children and adults the opportunity to praise God in song. Joanne was a high school music teacher, organist and music director of many parishes in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Florida. For the past six years, she was an organist and music director at All Saints Catholic Church in Clearwater. While her presence will be missed, her inspiration and love will be remembered throughout lifetimes. "Mom - it was a privilege having you as our mother." In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to Suncoast Hospice.
