So sorry when Patty told Joe she was leaving soon and to get the call from Jim this morning.  This lady was the sunshine and my childhood and such a beautiful gracious woman. Our condolences to all of you. May you find comfort and everyone’s happy memories of your mother ❤️
Love Joe and Sharon

Aunt Joan was a kind heart and I loved visiting with her.
Hugs to all my cousins. Remember the good times and smile. I can see Eleanor and Joan floating on the surf boards.  xo

Pinky Bigley,

Joan and Vince were our beloved next-door neighbors and friends for 45 years! Our families merged into one family…sharing special picnics around the pool…and special celebrations. Joan loved having family and friends around her. She nurtured a loving family of 7 children…loved to read…loved her garden of flowers and vegetables…and was never too busy to push a young child in her swing on the patio. Joan enjoyed having people over to swim and chat. What a loving, kind and considerate person she was! Joan was always striving to make a difference in the lives of others. It was a blessing to know her…she will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. She touched all of our lives….

We had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with Mrs. Grady when she was in Willsboro with Jeff and Kathleen.  What a lovely lady and always a pleasure to have a chat with.  She will be sorely missed by her huge family, I am sure.  God speed to her and God bless to the whole family.

So sorry to hear of Aunt Joanie’s passing.  I was always so honored that she chose me to be her flower girl so many years ago. I thought she was the most beautiful bride I had ever seen!
Sending love to all of my Grady cousins.  May you be comforted by all your sweet memories.

Your mother was my mentor, colleague, advisor and friend. Her legacy has lived on for decades and will never end. She has made a mark in this world and it will never be forgotten. Peace to all of you.

Many wonderful memories of the Reusswigs and Gradys
growing up on Wiggand Drive. I remember saying hi to
her many times as she sat at the end of her kitchen table,
always with a smile on her face.  A wonderful woman.
Our sympathies to the whole Grady family and our prayers
and thoughts are with you all.

Kevin, Mike, Patty, Joe, Brian, Jim & Kathleen,

So sorry to hear the news of your mom’s passing.  Each time I receive news like this, I’m immediately pulled back to a simpler time & place growing up on Wiggand Drive, and I think about the ‘founding families’ that basically started that neighborhood.  Mrs. & Mr. Grady are certainly a big part of those memories, and I will always think fondly of Joan and the kindness she offered me when I was a youngster.  Peace to you all,


Bob Keefe, Delmar, NY
