Joan DeMore Obituary

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on April 21, 1932, the daughter of Peter and Mary Toldrian, Joan passed away on Tuesday, November 28, 2023 at the age of 91 years.  She was preceded in death by her husband Michael in 2002.   She was a loving mother to Cindy Giunta(Mike), Christy Faber(Jim) and Dan DeMore(Jean) and always supported them as they pursued their dreams and goals.   She was greatly loved by her grandchildren Sam Giunta, Ben Giunta, Anthony Giunta, Julia DeMore, and Ella DeMore and she was able to meet her great-grandchild, Iris Giunta, thru FaceTime.

                Joan was known by everyone in the community and made it a point to attend every single sporting event of her local grandchildren, no matter what the weather was.  She was so proud of all of her grandchildren and loved to keep up with all of their activities.  She made a special point of making sure they were all treated equally and always had enough to eat.

                Joan loved babies and she loved animals.  She was a foster mother for many years, taking in newborn babies who were to be adopted.  She had over 40 foster babies over the years of her service and gave each one a loving, perfect beginning to their new life.  She had many dogs throughout her life and later cared for her children’s dogs like her own. 

Joan consistently put others before herself and she was generous beyond compare.  She loved Jesus and looked forward to meeting Him.  She will be greatly missed.
