Joan Vazzano

Loving wife of the late Gordon Vazzano.
Daughter of Clarence and Mildred Knol.
Devoted mother to the late Michael (Darlene) Vazzano and Susan (Gary) Collum.
Cherished grandmother to Sarah (Brian) Dodge, Heather (Jeff) Medinger, Nicole Collum, Corey (Yasmin) Collum, Denise (Alex) Johnson, and David (Kristina) James.
Valued great grandmother to Adrianna, Haleiwa, Jaxson, Vinny, Anthony, Joey, Landon, and Liam.
Dear sister of Marion Norman and her twin Jean Davidson.

Joan passed away peacefully with her daughter and son in law.
She was preceded in death by her son Michael and husband Gordon.
Joan was an amazing woman who always put everyone else first.
She was the sweetest most loving person you’ve ever met.
She dedicated her life to her family, making sure we were supported in whatever we did, and that we never felt anything other than loved.
She always looked forward to family vacations and Holiday’s.
Joan was always friendly, making friends with her warmth and beautiful happiness for life.
She was blessed to have an older sister, Marion, and a twin sister, Jean, who she spoke with daily.
She loved her grandchildren and made each one of them always feel special.
They loved and adored her and were always there if she needed anything.
Joan’s great-grandchildren adored their “GG”.
They brought her so much joy watching them grow.
Her daughter Susan was her best friend and will miss her so.
She spent a great deal of time with her after the passing of Joan’s beloved husband, Gordon, whom she was married to for 59 years.
A wonderful woman who was so full of life and who's smile was contagious, Joan is now at eternal peace and rest.
