Obituary for Joan L. Greenleaf (Davis)

Joan L.   Greenleaf (Davis)
Jay – Joan L. Greenleaf, 77, a resident of Jay, passed away Saturday, June 30th at her home surrounded by her loving family, following a lingering illness. She was born on March 2, 1941 in Wilton, the daughter of Lloyd W. Davis and Ina (Ober) Davis. She was a 1959 graduate of Wilton Academy. In 1964 at the Congregational Church in Wilton, she married Richard “Cud” Greenleaf of Jay. She worked at the shoe shops in Farmington, Livermore Falls, North Jay and Bass Shoe in Wilton. Joan enjoyed crocheting, camping with family in Rockland and Bar Harbor and going high hoeing with her grandchildren. Joan always put family above everything else. She would take the shirt off her back for the ones she loved. There was never a moment she wasn’t doing something to better the lives of the ones she held close. She never forgot a single birthday and was damned bound and determined to get a gift. You’d always be waiting and counting on that perfectly wrapped perfume and lotion scented “Sweet Honesty” from Avon. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Richard Greenleaf of Jay; her children, Terry Greenleaf and “Taffy Jo” of Jay, 5 grandchildren, Tara L. Fitch and husband Andrew, Travis A. Greenleaf and wife Erica, Caleb L. Greenleaf, Cody R. Greenleaf and Carson R. Greenleaf, 4 great-grandchildren, Jace E. Fitch, Malachi T. Fitch, Evelynn L. Fitch and Sophia L. Greenleaf and special friends, Nancy Ryder, Trudy Greenleaf, Robert and Deidra Tozier, Mary Young and Becky Haskell. She was predeceased by her parents, and her daughter, Tracy L. Greenleaf.
