Obituary of Joan Newman

Joan Newman (69) left this world unexpectedly following a brief illness, May 26, 2022.

Joan was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Irene Ondash and sister, Florence Gosciewski, Larksville, PA.

She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Kenneth Newman, Fairdale. 

Recently retired, for the past 25 years Joan was employed as an independent Graphic Designer with her husband in their studio -  graphic design agency and commercial photography.  For several years she was an Instructor of Graphic Design and Typography in the Commercial Art Department of Luzerne County Community College.  Prior to her teaching, Joan was employed as a factory manager for a group of union facilities in the garment industry.  An avid cook and baker Joan designed and tended a wonderful organic kitchen garden that has been featured on several national websites.  Joan was a lover of art, music, and antiques, but most of all her animals.  Over the years she was the rescuer, caregiver, and mom to so many helpless, abandoned, and injured creatures.  Joan is survived by her feline family who will surely miss her love and compassion.

If desired, contributions may be made in her memory to Kindred Spirits Feral Cat Program, P.O. Box 49 Montrose, PA 18801
