Born in Ludlow, daughter of the late Angelo and Olga (Sergneri) Bruschi, she was a lifelong resident and graduate of Ludlow High School as well as a faithful communicant of Our Lady of Fatima Parish. Joan worked for many years in the jewelry department of J.C. Penney Dept.

Joan’s family wishes to extend a special thank you to the nurses and staff of Baystate Hospice, especially Darlene for their exceptional care and compassion. Funeral services for Joan will be held on Tuesday, November 14, 2023.
