Joan Kolodziej (Elliott) passed away peacefully at home on September 21, 2019. She was 76.
Joan was born in Brooklyn, NY to adoring parents Minnie and George Elliott. She will be remembered for her extreme love of QVC of which she was a loyal shopper. Joan also had a passion for the WWE. What friends and family will remember the most though is her feisty personality.

She is now reunited with her husband William R.; her son Wayne R. Sr.; her sister Dolores Karpak; and her parents Minnie and George Elliott in eternal rest.
