It is with heavy hearts that we share the sad news that our dear friend, Joan Wilichowski, died Wednesday, June 19th. Joan was the secretary at St. Anthony’s for 42 years and has been a volunteer here since her retirement at the end of 2013.

Joan was such an integral part of the St. Anthony community that it is hard to imagine St. Anthony’s without her smile and her laughter. She made every person feel welcome here, and, more than that, she made them feel special, like they were the only one that mattered.

We ask you to hold Joan and especially her family in your prayers as they grieve her unexpected death.
