Joan A. DeCarlo, 94, of Homer City, passed away peacefully at Beacon Ridge on March 28, 2023. She was the daughter of the late Paul and Mary Porch and was born on September 10, 1928.

Joan worked at Penn Traffic for 20 years. She loved her job and working with the public. Her home was her castle, she was a wonderful mother and loving wife who was always there when we needed her. She had many friends and was well-loved. She will be sorely missed by many.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Mary E. Swanlek, her sisters, Helen, Irene, Elizabeth, Mary, and brothers, John, Paul, Louis, and Joe.

My father and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all family and special friends who were extremely supportive throughout my mother’s illness.

As per Joan’s request, no funeral or memorial service will be held. Donations can be made to the Alzheimer Association.
