JOANNE SINTON Joanne Sinton, was born as Joanne Borkowski on May 29, 1954 in Danbury Connecticut, to parents Stanley and Dorothy Borkowski. Her spirit departed this earthly world on August 1, 2014 at Treasure Coast Hospice. After getting married to Paul Sinton in 1975, the newlyweds immediately moved to Stuart, Florida. She became a mother in 1979 to Melissa and again in 1982 to Michelle. Together Paul and Joanne owned Stylecraft Cabinets for numerous years. She eventually became a General Contractor and a Residential Contractor, and they operated Contemporary Homes by Sinton, Inc., which specialized in custom crafted homes. In the mid-90's, Joanne became a Registered Nurse and worked at Martin Memorial South. In the early 2000's, she utilized her Real Estate License and worked as a Realtor at Century 21 IRP Realty and lastly at Keller Williams of the Treasure Coast. She was a very savvy and successful business woman. Most important of all of her duties was to be a loving and devoted mother and grandmother. She had recently lost her mother Dorothy Borkowski in April 2013 to pancreatic cancer. She had devoted 2 years of her life taking care of her mother, and even went so far as to move into her mother's house near the end of her mothers life. She LOVED to travel and did so often on cruises around the world. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, European History, Soft Rock and Country music, a good bargain, the beach, delectable cuisine (especially lobster), meditation and helping those in need.
