Joan F. Lemma

(nee Hunter) on January 3, 2019 of Clementon, NJ. Age 78 years. Beloved wife of Hugh J. Lemma for 57 years. Loving daugher of the late Margaret Skea Hunter and John Hunter. Devoted mother of Kimberly Masterson (Mark), Hugh J. Lemma, Jr. (Colleen), Wayne Lemma (Anne), Brian Lemma (Sheryl) and Kelly Mackie. Dear sister of the late John Hunter, Jr. and Thomas Hunter. Proud grandmother of Mark Jr., Brett, Dale, Kyle, Jessica, Aaron, Steven, Brianna, Caitlin, Wayne Jr., Sarah, Marisa and Justin. She was the great grandmother of six and had many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Joan was truly a good woman who devoted her life to her beloved husband Hugh.  She raised her five children in the simplicity of love and compassion.  Her presence was a constant and her love was unconditional.  Her grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews brought her joy.  She had a way of making each of them feel how special they were to her.  Mentioning her many neighbors as neighbors, doesn’t convey the role they played in her life.  They were extended family who all had a special place in her heart.  Every person in Joan’s life was important to her.  Joan will be missed, but we’ll all have taken something good from her and we will carry it with us.  Rest in peace Joan.
