Obituary for Joan A. Emiliani

Joan A. Emiliani of Moosic passed away Saturday at Moses Taylor Hospital with her family by her side. She was the widow of John V. Emiliani Sr. who died October 24, 1995.
Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Esther Brown D’Annunzio. She was a graduate of Moosic High School and prior to her retirement was employed as a Switchboard Operator at Bell Telephone and Mercy Hospital.
She always looked forward to her trips to Atlantic City and Mohegan Sun Casinos. She was a very humble person and never once complained or asked why me when it came to her physical ailments. She was famous for her specialty cakes.
Joan’s family would like to thank Dr. Darlene Dunay and the entire staff at Moses Taylor Hospital for the wonderful care they provided to her and her family. We will be forever grateful.
She was a member of Divine Mercy Parish at St. Joseph’s Church.
She wanted the memory of her to be a happy one. She would like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. She’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways. Of happy times and laughing times and bright sunny days. She’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
Surviving is a daughter Caryn Emiliani and her son Ryan Emiliani; a son John Emiliani Jr. and his wife Kelly, and their children, Gianna and Talia Emiliani; two sisters, Cathy D’Annunzio and Donna D’Annunzio, all of Moosic; sisters in-law, Louise Vinskofski, Clarks Summit, Ann Pesca, Arizona; brothers in-law, Paul Emiliani Jr. and wife Eileen; Emil Emiliani and wife Anne, Jack Emiliani and wife Judy, all of Scranton; several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by a brother, Michael D’Annunzio; mother and father in law, Paul Emiliani and Rose Emiliani; sisters in-law, Perina Janeski, Eleanor Volpe and Marge Domiano.
She will be truly missed by all who loved her and knew her.
