Joan S. Walsh (nee Philburn), of Bloomfield, died on Wednesday, August 11th, 2021. She was 85. "Joannie" was born in Kearny where she graduated high school, and then immediately started working as a key-punch operator in the Prudential Insurance Company in Newark.

More recently, Joan enjoyed spending her time preparing and serving meals to the community at the FaithWorks Kitchen in Paterson and volunteering at the 55 KIP Center in Rutherford where she also attended exercise classes.
