Joan Marie (Brozek) Farley
Farley (nee Brozek), Joan Marie Passed to her eternal reward on Sunday, July 7, 2019 surrounded by family who lovingly shared her cancer journey. She will be dearly missed by her husband of 58 1/2 years, Patrick; six sons Gregory, Timothy (Jenny), Kevin (Suzanne), Michael (Julie), Brian (Kara), and Daniel (Katy); grandchildren, Meghan (Matt), Dillon (Kelsee), Connor (Briana), Michael (Kara), Peter, Lauren, Kate (Jamie), Nick, Hannah, Heather, Mary Catherine, Kallie, Alex, Jacob, Abbie, Anna, Maggie, Mark, and Lizzie; special "family" members, Deb and Nick Lindquist; sister Elaine McDonald and sister-in-law, Kathleen Farley; and many nieces and nephews. Joan joins in eternity her parents Eleanor and Cy Brozek; sister Mary Drew; and parents-in-law Doc and Georgie Farley. Joan graduated from St. Joseph's Academy in 1957 and the College of St. Catherine in 1961. She was a tireless volunteer at churches, schools and within the community. But her treasured, and most important role, was being Pat's wife, "the Farley boys'" Mom, and "the grands'" Grammie. Joan's message to all of them is, "My unconditional LOVE is with you for ever." Mass of Christian Burial is on July 22, 2019, 10 AM at Church of the Assumption, 51 7th St. W., St. Paul, with visitation beginning at 8:30 AM prior to the Celebration. Joan wishes all who attend to dress in their favorite bright colors because it is a celebration of life. The family wishes to extend its sincerest thanks to the caring and tenderness shown her by the hospice team of HealthPartner's Hospice. They aided all of us in taking the final journey.
