Joan F. Hacherl, 81, of 300 West Mill Street, St. Marys, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, June 5, 2019, at her residence.

She was born August 8, 1937, in Kane, daughter of the late Henry and Julia “Honey” Daly Aiello.  She was a lifelong resident of the area and was a graduate of Johnsonburg High School, Class of 1955.  Joan was a retired employee of GTE Sylvania, retiring with over 25 years of service and was a member of the St. Mary’s Church.

On February 20, 1960, in the Holy Rosary Church in Johnsonburg, Joan married the only love of her life, Thomas G. “Turk” Hacherl, Jr.  They shared 57 years as a married couple and he preceded her in death on October 16, 2017.

“Joanie” never knew a stranger.  Everyone who met her instantly recognized they had become her friend.  Her generosity had no bounds and she will be remembered by all as the nicest and kindest person anyone could encounter.
