I also grew up in little ferry. We we're friends many of us didn't realize her family moved. We thought she was just taking different classes. At the end of our senior year we found out she moved. She was always part of RP class of 61 Invited to our reunions. She was a very nice person and lots of fun. So sad for your lost my prayers are with all of you

Nathan, Adam, Jeffrey, I had no idea your Mom died. I knew about her COPD of course and her heart surgery so many years ago. We've been friends since I moved to Little Ferry in 7th grade. I loved her all these years. I'm so sorry for your collective loss. Godspeed Joan. May God's everlasting light shine upon you forever. Linda Buff

Words can not say how deeply saddened by the passing of my dear cousin Joan...we grew up together in Little Ferry...she was my idol and being a few years younger than her I always looked up to her...we had so many good times together in Greenwood Lake ...she taught me all the latest dance steps back then...we often laughed about the fun times at The Three Sisters Beach store ....I'm going to miss our talks..we always went back and forth about our Luberto Family history...My deepest heartfelt sympathy go out to her family...her family was the world to her....I know she will be missed by many...especially in peace Joan!!
