Joan Marie Lamson, age 78, passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the Post Acute Medical Specialty Hospital of Sarasota, Florida on April 19, 2021. Born June 1, 1942 in Spangler, Pennsylvania, Joan was a former resident of several New Jersey towns: North Brunswick, Milltown, Warren, and Somerset, before finally retiring to live in Venice, Florida in 2012.
She worked for 25 years as an executive secretary at UMDNJ in Piscataway, NJ before retiring in 1999.
Family was her greatest joy in life. Joan enjoyed spending time with her late husband, Gary, at their summer house at Lake Wallenpaupack, PA for many years. She especially loved spending time with her “Girls” (her granddaughters and daughter). Joan also enjoyed cooking, annual Christmas cookie bakes, shopping, golfing, interior decorating and keeping everything neat, tidy, and organized.
Joan was predeceased by her beloved husband, Gary Lamson, and parents Alex and Irene Toth. She is survived by her daughter, Lorraine (Furrer) Wilczewski, her husband, Kevin, and two granddaughters, Kristen and Elizabeth. She is also survived by her two siblings: her sister, Marie Loughlin, and brother, Randall Toth, and many nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her loving dog, Abby. She will be forever missed in the hearts of many.
