Her happiest days were when she was surrounded by her family, especially her grandchildren, and even happier if you sat down at her table to eat something delicious she had made.

Joan is survived by her daughter, Susan Mercurio and husband Joe. Son Frank Livas and fiance, Carol Molina. Four grandchildren:  Peter Livas, Kris Routzong, Noelle Albert and Joseph Mercurio and two great grandchildren:  Brady Livas and Theodora Albert. She was predeceased by her sister Gina Harris of Vestal, NY
