Joan graduated from St. Joseph’s Academy in 1957 and the College of St. Catherine in 1961. She was a tireless volunteer at churches, schools and with-in the community. But her treasured, and most important role, was being Pat’s wife, “the Farley boys'” Mom, and “the grands'” Grammie. Joan’s message to all of them is, “My un-conditional LOVE is with you forever.” Mass of Christian Burial is on July 22, 2019, 10 AM at Church of the Assumption, 51 7th St W, St Paul, with visitation beginning at 8:30 AM prior to the Celebration.
