Obituary of JoAnn D. Walsh

JoAnn D Walsh, age 83, passed away on October 8, 2021 peacefully at her home.

JoAnn was born June 24, 1938, in Albany NY, a daughter of the late Ralph Hughes and Jane Killough. After graduating from VI in Albany, she was employed by NYS Department of Motor Vehicle Insurance Services. She moved to East Greenbush, NY, where she raised her three children. JoAnn enjoyed doing the New York Times Sunday Crossword with her good friend Barbara. She loved to sew, and her needle point was “done to perfection.” She also enjoyed sitting in her carport with a cold can of beer, specifically during the Saratoga Track month of August. She had a pen pal, Laura, from Holland since 1947. They considered each other as half-sisters and remained in-touch enjoying conversations about their families. A museum in Holland has an exhibit displaying their friendship along with a few letters they wrote to one another.

She was preceded in death by her former husband, James E Walsh. She is survived by her sons, Michael (Cheri), Jimmy (Amy), Timmy (Jessica), seven grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and cousins.

A  special thanks to her amazing care from Joyce, Kathy, Dee, Lisa, Ronda, Dr Robert Busch and his wife Kathy.

Private family services will be held Friday, 15Oct2021. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
