  1. So sorry for your lost. When we were kids my father Angelo Vitale and your grandfather Angelo Belmonte always carried St. Joseph and we would follow the saint. May she rest in peace

  2. I remember her when she was with St Joseph’s Society great woman she would always say hi to me.

  3. A lovely lady, at all times so well groomed. Always greeting you with a friendly smile. Her father was a member of the
    St. Mark Society and Sacred Heart Church and Joanna always made a donation to the Society’s Annual breakfast.
    May she rest in peace, she will surely be missed.

  4. I was so sad to hear about the passing of your Mother, Joanna. She was such a warm, loving person and especially loved her boys. I fondly remember summers and “camp” on Doncaster where Grant would spend all day as well as her trips to the feast with all the kids. She was always so quick to laugh! May all your wonderful memories help to sustain you at this time.

  5. Joanna was such a lovely person. I so enjoyed her visits to the restaurant. So kind and considerate and such a pleasure to talk to. Despite her many physical challenges her attitude was always positive and joyful. It was a pleasure to serve her and I’m grateful to have know her. Condolences to her family and may she rest in peace.

  6. I always looked forward to seeing Joanne each time I visited the North End during the Italian Festival. She will sorely be missed by me. Our visits were always fun and with updating news about was going on in the North End.

  7. Dear Kathy and Joseph, Matthew, Michael, Jennie and Roxanne,
    When I was with Joanna years ago she always made me feel special. She would say something good about my family and it’s connection to her mother’s family. I liked the way she was passionate about what was right and good. I pray you all are well. God Bless and keep the good memories.
