Joan P. Yankowski, age 86, born in Brooklyn, NY, has now joined her late husband of 61 years, Charles Kenneth. She is survived by her children Ken (wife Barbara); Patricia (husband Richard); Anne (husband Blaise); and Theresa (husband David). Joan is the beloved Grandmother of Dana Marie. She is also survived by her sister Dorothy; sister-in-law Rosalie; and many cousins; nieces; and nephews. Joan is predeceased by her sisters Rose, Marie, and brother Vincent.

Joan loved horses, John Wayne, and westerns, which were reflected in her home. She enjoyed vacations with her children when they were young on dude ranches to share in the joy of the life she loved so much.

Joan and her husband, Charles, retired from New Jersey to Arizona over 27 yrs ago and were very involved in their community. Joan was passionate about volunteering and caring for others. Joan also enjoyed cooking for her family and friends.

Joan suffered with Alzheimers and dementia for the past 5 years and is now at peace. In lieu of flowers the family requests you consider a donation to an Alzheimers research foundation of your choice in memory of Joan.

The family wishes to grieve in private.

Dear Patty, Ken, Anne, and Teresa,

I will always be grateful to your mom for hosting a bridal shower for me in your backyard on Harrison Ave. in Union Beach back in 1978. Even though we were a small group, we had so much fun and did much laughing together. That would be just like your mom to do something like that for someone. I know she loved you all dearly, and I will be praying for comfort and strength for you all through the year.

With Love,
Karen Sanabria (Cornelius)
