Joan K. Coutu, 83, of Hazlet, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Monday, September 11, 2017 at Bayshore Community Hospital in Holmdel. She was born Joan K.

Joan was a beautiful, gentle woman, full of integrity. She was a wonderful daughter, a caring sister, a devoted wife, and the epitome of what a loving mother and grandmother should be. Joan's family was her pride and joy. She was an avid reader and passed on her love of books to her family. Joan loved walking, bird watching, and gardening her flowers in the spring and summer time. She was also a woman of great faith and a loyal communicant of St. Benedict Parish in Holmdel for over 50 years. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was predeceased by her parents, William and Kathleen (Barry) Maushardt, her devoted husband, Charles C. Coutu, and her beloved son, Richard Coutu.
