Joan Giannola 1929 - 2022

With saddened hearts but happy memories we share the passing of our loving mother and nannie Joan Giannola on April 1, 2022 at age 93.

Joan is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Joann Giannola; her daughter and son-in-law, Joan and Frank Sabella; her grandson and his wife, Vincent and Shelley Seeno; and her granddaughter and her husband, Laura and Alex Spitzel.

We will remember her wonderful cooking; her love of nature, especially animals, birds, cats, and gardening; her enjoyment of classic movies; and her fond recollections of “Brooklyn days.” Mostly, we will remember her love for her family and the fun times we shared with her.

In honor of Joan’s love of animals, memorial donations to the North Shore Animal League will be welcomed. Go to the North Shore Animal League website at
