WATERVLIET – Joan Theresa Tetrault passed peacefully after an extended illness on Thursday, October 10, 2019.
To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Joan Theresa Tetrault (Curtis), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Born on June 26, 1926, in Watertown, New York, Joan was the daughter of Dewey H. and Frances M Curtis (Devine). The family later moved to Watervliet, NY which was home for Joan and husband, Edward Tetrault and their family from then on. Joan was educated in Watervliet and Watertown.
Joan worked, for many years, supporting Arsenio Agopovich, M.D. as general office manager and partner in the Watervliet Office. Joan was warm, thorough and compassionate. She made many lifelong friends in her partnership with Dr. A.
Joan is perhaps most admired for her generosity and friendship for everyone she knew. This was especially true at the camp on Lake Lauderdale where she and Ed hosted many parties and warmly welcomed everyone who dropped by.
Joan was the loved and loving wife of Edward J. Tetrault since 1951; mother of Edward K. Tetrault (Penny), John K. Tetrault (Martha), and Richard J “Archie” Tetrault (Ann); grandmother to Rachel Tetrault Bailey, Jeffrey Tetrault, and Brittany Alexander (Michael); adored great grandmother of Tatum Passonno, Ava and Peyton Bailey.
Joan was an avid Yankee fan, never missing a game. She had a passion for life, including all things sweet and beautiful. Friends and family will sorely miss her generosity of spirit and warmth.
A service, in celebration of Joan’s life, will be held on Monday at 1 pm in the Parker Bros. Memorial, 2013 Broadway, Watervliet. Interment will follow in St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands. Friends are invited to attend and may also visit with Joan’s family, prior to the service, from 11 am until 1 pm.
To those who wish to remember Joan in a special way, a donation to the Watervliet Civic Center, P.O. Box 164, Watervliet, NY 12189, in her memory, would be appreciated.
