Obituary of Joanne Marchionda
Marchionda, Joanne ~ after a courageous battle, with her family by her side, at the St. Catharines General Hospital, at the age of 72. Beloved mother of Gina (William Kryzanowski) Marchionda and Annette (Len Hume) Marchionda. Joanne is survived by the love of her life and the father of her children, Gino Marchionda. Loving grandma to William, and Nicole Kryzanowski and Julé Diotte-Hume and great grandma to Owen and Cole. Dear sister of Filomena (Assuntino) Bozza, Maria (Clemente) Conte, Grace (the late Michael) Cugino, Nancy (Wallace) Gordon and Josephine (Antonio) Mauriello. Predeceased by parents Domenico and Antonietta Maddalena and sister Lucy Scobie (2010). Joanne will also be missed by many nieces and nephews. Nothing pleased Joanne more than being around and serving those close to her. The YMCA of Niagara was a place held dear to her heart because it allowed her to serve so many and make exceptional friendships. When not helping her family or friends you would always find her at home, fixing this, tidying that or just simply enjoying the space she made special! Joanne was a very special person who was selfless and worried about others to the end. She is already missed.
