Joan A. Bellavance, 77, affectionately known as Joanie, of Manchester, went to her heavenly home June 3, 2022.
She was born in Nashua on January 21, 1945, the daughter of Leon and Cecile (Cote) Bellavance. She had worked for twenty years at Sanders Associates in Nashua and worked for the Salvation Army in Manchester for a number of years. Joanie was a spiritual, kind, compassionate and devoted Catholic. She was an avid reader and engaged in the simple things in life; a day shopping and dining with her friend Pauline and occasional visits from her Maniac friend Lorrie. “Joanie Baloney” as expressed by her Maple Leaf Heath Care family, will be sorely missed as a special patient.
Family members include three sisters, Gloria Benoit, Elena Pannell, and Jeannie LeRiche; a niece, and several nephews. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by two brothers, John Leon Bellavance and John Paul Bellavance.
She also leaves behind special friends, Pauline Abeels of Manchester, and here lifelong friend of 44 years, Lorrie Webb Davenport of Presque Isle, ME. Fly high with the angels Joanie – see you on the other side.
