She was employed by New York University Medical School for 37 years working her way up to becoming the Assistant Dean of Admissions; She made lifelong friends and touched so many future doctor’s lives. She approached every obstacle in her life with dignity and optimism, never complaining.  Joanne loved traveling the world, her pup Molly, spending time at the beach, tending to her rose garden and anything Irish, but most of all spending time with her nephews, Ian, Billy and Brian, whom she adored.  Joanne loved her family and friends unconditionally, and was the epitome of grace, courage and love which are the symbols of the Irish Claddagh, Loyalty, Friendship and Love.
