Obituary of Joan Ward

Please share a memory of Joan to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Joan Ward was a caring sister, aunt, and friend. She left this world peacefully the morning of June 21, 2024 at the age of 81. 

She was born to Stevenson and Grace Ward on November 21, 1943 in New York City. Joan moved from New York City to Darien in 1950 where she spent most of her childhood, enjoying Cape Cod every summer which truly was her happy place.

After attending Georgetown, Joan graduated from Bennett College and followed her passion for reading into working in publishing at Double Day where she stayed for her entire career. Joan had a passion for travel, history, and her family. She was a very active member of the Junior League and spent her free time enjoying her love of tennis. An avid consumer of current events, Joan never missed reading the New York Times in the morning and was a great conversationalist. Joan was always the gracious and proper host for family holidays and celebrations. Her attention to detail and etiquette made her the act to follow and we will cherish the memories and lessons we learned.

 She leaves behind her brother Stevenson E. Ward, sister in law Sandy Ward, Nephews Steve and Chris Ward, niece Kim Burt, and grandnieces and nephews.

A Funeral Service is scheduled for 10 am on June 28th, 2024 at Lawrence Funeral Home in Darien, CT followed by the burial in Bronxville, New York.
