Born December 27, 1939, in Rochester, Pa., she is the daughter of the late Anthony and Clara (Heyman) Primo.  Joan enjoyed crossword puzzles, crocheting, cross stitch, and crafting with plastic canvas.  She spent many years singing in the St. Pudentiana and Holy Family church choirs.  She worked in banking, catering, and at Altmeyers Home Store in the Northern Lights shopping plaza.  She was very generous and contributed to several charities.  We enjoyed all her storytelling over the years, and she will be greatly missed.
