January 22, 1930 - December 13, 2017
Joan-Marie Henninger left us peacefully, surrounded with family, on December 13, 2017. It is time for her next adventure with Charles who has been waiting for her. Joan was born on January 22, 1930 in Queens, NY to Anthony and Augusta Steinhauser. She was truly blessed with a happy life. Her family spent many summers living in an awesome old army tent while together they built their summer bungalow near Wildwood State Park, picked vegetables on the local farms and played on the rocky beaches of Long Island Sound. She married Charles, the love of her life, in 1953. They had a truly happy marriage and 4 rotten kids. Together they lived in Queens, NY, Ossining, NY, Purchase, NY then moved to Norwalk, CT when Charles took a job with the Town of Greenwich. Joan also had a job for the Town of Greenwich as a Director for the Senior Center. Joan was an integral part of shepherding the senior center from a small gathering in a church basement to taking of over the town hall. She made all of the seniors feel welcome and included. After retiring they moved to Fort Collins to be with their Colorado family. They traveled and worked for Catholic Charities making friends and happily settling into Colorado life. Joan loved her family, she loved her husband, she loved her children and she loved her job. It really doesn’t get much better. She was always gentle and kind. We will miss her. Joan is survived by her son Richard, daughter Carolyn Myers (husband Don and grandson Matthew and his wife Kaitlin), son Thomas (wife Heidi grandsons Zach and Nate). There will not be a formal celebration of her life, we ask you to hold her in your heart often and think of her and her contented manner. At her request, we will spread her ashes in the same location as Charles’. She will “catch up with him from there”.
