Joan Daly


Joan Daly (nee Connolly), 92 of Fair Lawn passed away to the hands of the Lord on Saturday, August 17, 2019.   She was predeceased by her husband Christopher “Bud” in 1981. Devoted mother of her nine children: Donna & Jack Westby-Gibson, Dan & Maryann Daly, Kathy and Walt Daly-Sutton, Karen Daly, Bonnie & Tom Hedderich, Chris & JoAnn Daly, Colleen & Bill Milnes, Joanne & Jim Andres and Mary & Domenick Saglimbeni. Cherished grandmother of 23 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren. Beloved sister to Janet Guinee and Doris Fair.  Joan was predeceased by her brothers Joseph Connolly, Jack Connolly, and baby Jimmy.  Joan is also survived by many adoring nieces and nephews.   

Joan’s beauty was in the eyes of all her family.  She never missed a birthday, anniversary, or celebration; always with a personalized card selected for the occasion with her signature endings, Mom, Grandma Joan, Grammie or simply, “Lotsa love Me.”

A devout Catholic, Joan was a pioneer parishioner of St. Catharine Church (Glen Rock) in 1951. Joan was a member of the AMPS serving as their president and volunteered countless hours at the Oasis and Eva’s Kitchen in Paterson, and the Guild in Englewood Cliffs NJ. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday, August 22, 2019, 11 am at the church she loved, St.  Catharine Church, 905 South Maple Avenue, Glen Rock, NJ 07452.   Friends are invited to church one hour prior to the mass to pay respects to the family.  There will be no calling hours. Burial will be private.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to St. Catharine Church in memory of Joan Daly.

Today , my heart and soul is filled with love thinking of the most joyous and sacred memories shared with you. Leading by your example to find peace and beauty within sadness. Thank you for giving us the most precious gift of one another. The gift of love that surrounds us always in mind, body, and spirit. Grandma, our love for one another will remain in our hearts and embrace our souls for eternity. So here’s a toast to “good times”, to you, Grandma. You, who planted the seed of this beautiful, loving family;your 2 sons, 7 daughters, 23 Grandchildren, and 29 Great-Grandchildren. For your infamous quote: “It’s really something , all these people and not ONE of them’s ugly!” For teaching each of us the true meaning of everlasting, unconditional, endless, non-judgmental love. For teaching us strength to get through the most difficult times and guiding us to turn life’s lemons into lemonade. For your infinite wisdom, support, and always trusting advice. For the smiles and uncontrollable laughter we will keep in our hearts to infinity and beyond. For showing us that age, truly, is just a number. For teaching us forgiveness and how to find Beauty within the fear of honesty and truth. For your gracious volunteer work with the community and your “job” of going to church every morning of your life to pray for our continued health and safety from harm. For your birthday and anniversary cards that never missed a day. For teaching us the most valuable life lessons... *Theres’s no problem too big that a little duct tape can’t fix, *Happy Hour “opens” at 3, *Always party as if it is your last and *Dance as if no one is watching. For your cream cheese and olive sandwiches, succulent thanksgiving stuffing, and peppermint “Grammy candies”. Cheers to you Grandma, forever and always, our most beautiful Guardian Angel.
Your beloved Granddaughter, Kathleen
