Joan (Kostige) Solewater, age 78, of Scranton and formerly of Throop, passed away Sunday at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after an illness. She was preceded in death on January 17, 2019, by her beloved husband and best friend of 41 years, the late John F. Solewater, Jr.
Joan was born in Scranton on May 7, 1942. She was the daughter of Anthony and Catherine (James) Kostige and the sister of Antoinette DeFazio and Gale Hepplewhite. A graduate of West Scranton High School, she then began a career in finance, retiring as an accountant.
Best described as kind, loving and just a wonderful person, she had really loved her life. Although devastated by the loss of John, she really found an endearing extended family in her neighbors at Delaware Towers at Allied Terrace in Scranton.
Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a member of Blessed Sacrament Church in Throop.
She was also the aunt to many nieces and nephews and dear friend to countless. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
