Joan M. Reichwald Obituary
Joan M. Reichwald

Age 70, of Wilmington, DE passed away peacefully with her daughters by her side on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 after a short battle with cancer. Born May 15, 1945 in Philadelphia, Joan graduated from Temple University, had a first career as a high school English teacher and then a long, beloved second career as an office manager at Zenker & Styer and now Capital & Worth.

Joan loved her family dearly, especially her grandchildren. She was a sharp-witted, fun-loving, joyous woman with an infectious personality. Game playing, especially mah jong, was her favorite hobby. Joan was also a plant whisperer, avid reader, amazing cook and fan of travel. Most of all, she loved to joke around and laugh with her friends!

Preceded in death by her husband, Chuck, she is survived by her devoted daughters, Shara Reichwald and Alisa Wiggins (Kevin); her grandchildren, Carper and Skye; her brother, Sheldon Twer (Barbara); her nephew, Canyon Twer; and her honorary niece and grandchild, Jennifer and Harrison Simon.

A graveside service will be 2:00 pm, Friday, April 15, 2016 at the Jewish Community Cemetery, 401 Foulk Road, Wilmington, DE 19803. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center, Suite 1213, 4701 Ogletown-Stanton Road, Newark, DE 19713. In the memo section of your check, please write "Gyn-Onc, Joan Reichwald."
