Stafford, N.Y. ~ Joan Blyth, age 88, of Horseshoe Lake Road, passed away early Friday morning (December 30, 2022) at Strong Memorial Hospital.
She was born May 11, 1934 in Bethlehem, PA, a daughter of the late James and Helen Johnson Blyth.
Joan will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother, who was very proud of her World War II research work. She, along with a historian, researched the “B-29 Bomb Group”, which ultimately brought many veterans and their families together. Joan worked for the Princeton Theological Seminary for many years as a secretary. She had a love for all animals, especially wolves and was an avid reader.
She is survived by her daughters, Donna L. Voorhees and Tracey L Collins (Ken); son, John M. Stahl (Diane); grandchildren, Christopher J. Voorhees (Chelsea), Travis A. Voorhees (Maria), Sarah C. Cliff and Heather M. Kasprzak; great-granddaughters, Rileigh E. Voorhees and Athena S. Voorhees, along with her feline companion, Fred.
A celebration of Joan’s life will be held at a future date in New Jersey.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Lollypop Farm or Lakota Wolf Preserve.
