Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Joan (Cronin) Killeen, passed away peacefully at Allied Services Skilled Nursing on February 27, 2023. The family is deeply saddened by the death of their beloved Matriarch.

Joan was born on April 2, 1929 to parents John and Marguerite (Barth) Cronin. She was a lifelong resident of West Scranton and graduated from West Scranton High in 1947.

Joan met her husband Joseph Killeen at Saint Ann’s Novena, and they married on October 3, 1955. They shared over 53 years of marriage.

Joan was a beautifully passionate and resilient woman. She was a devout Catholic, a voracious reader and intellect. She found much pleasure in music, dancing, and dining with friends and family. Especially memorable are her trips to the Tradewinds Resort, St. Pete Beach, where she created many memories relaxing in cabanas, walking the beach, and sipping chardonnay at her favorite piano bar.

If you were blessed to have known Joan, you will remember her for her strong values, unwavering belief, and zest for life.

Joan is survived and missed by her loving children Michael (Barbara), Mary Munley (Joseph), Ellen Pocius, and Patricia Noble (Robert). Forever remembered and admired by her six grandchildren, Joseph Munley Jr., Kathleen (Munley) Laflin, Kacie (Killeen) Saker, Keith Kearney, Amy Pocius, Kelsey Killeen, and their families. Her memory is cherished by her cousin Mary Elizabeth Williams, nephews Thomas and Edward Farry and nieces Roseanne (Farry) Dippell and Eileen Farry. She will be greatly missed by her dear friends whom she considered family; Mary Ann Fox, Judy Goffer, Margie Parinisi, Debbie Falvo .

Her legacy lives on with her great grandchildren; William and John Laflin, Lucas Gilbert, Emilia Munley, and Callie Saker.

Joan was predeceased by her husband, Joseph Killeen, her beloved son, Joseph Killeen Jr., and son-in-law, Thomas Pocius.

Although she will be missed on Earth, her family is comforted in knowing that Joan’s soul is peacefully resting in heaven.
