St. Johnsville - Joan R. Mosher, 85, a life-long St. Johnsville resident, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 11, 2023, in the comfort of her home.
She was born on March 9, 1938, in Little Falls, the daughter of the late Jay and Rheta (Sitts) Lenig. Joan was a graduate of St. Johnsville High School, class of 1955.
Joan was united in marriage to the love of her life Garry M. Mosher who preceded her in death on November 16, 2007. One life, one love.
For many years, Joan was employed at the former Little Falls Footwear in St. Johnsville, NY.
Joan's most important occupation was being a homemaker, taking care of her loved ones. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, always putting the needs and concerns of her family first. She made her house a home that was filled with love, comfort, and happiness. Joan opened her home to all and enjoyed having picnics, family gatherings, and anything that brought people together. She often reminisced about all the fond memories she had of her children and grandchildren’s friends throughout the years spending time at her house. She treated everyone she met as family. She was gram to all.
Over the years, Joan enjoyed bowling, snowmobiling, playing cards, dancing (she even dabbled in country line dancing), spending time with family and friends, trips that ranged from Florida to Niagara Falls, and spending time at the Camp on Canada Lake.
As a lifelong resident of St. Johnsville, Joan took great pride in her community. She was active in the St. Patrick Catholic Church, volunteered for many years at the St. Johnsville Fireman’s Fair in the Bingo booth, and was a Cub Scout leader in which she took great pride in and spoke of her scouts and scouting days often especially parade floats.
Survivors include her daughter, Renee Allen and husband Mark Allen; a son Mark Mosher; six grandchildren, Beth Snyder and husband Brad, Amber Palmer and husband Ty, Michael Stowell, Jaylene McLaughlin and husband Lucas, Kyle Raux and fiancé Brienna, and Kirsten Raux; seven great grandchildren, Emily Joan Snyder, Alaina Snyder, Josie Snyder, Stella Palmer, Vincent (Bubby) Palmer, Kinsley McLaughlin, and Evelynn Raux; brother in law and sister in law Kermit and Joan Mosher with whom she had a very special bond; and many cousins, nieces and nephews; and extended family.
She was predeceased by her siblings Donald Lenig and Helen Smith; brother-in-law Wesley (Red) Smith; and niece Linda Myers.
In keeping with Joan's wishes, funeral services and burial at St. Johnsville Cemetery will be private and held at the convenience of her family. Funeral arrangements are under the caring guidance of the Vincent A. Enea Funeral Service, (next to the Masonic Lodge), 20 Bridge St., St. Johnsville, NY.
