Joan Chambers Obituary

Joan Rita Chambers, 89, passed peacefully into the arms of the Lord on the evening of January 9, 2024.
Predeceased by her parents Howard and Martha(Wilcox)  brothers & sister-in-law Raymond (Patricia), Larry, Paul, sister & brother-in-law Dolores Cuddihe (James), and nephews  Dennis, Brian, Chris, and Norman, niece Michelle, and her good friend Barbara Avery. Joan is survived by brothers and sister in law of Gerald (Fran), Gordon (Sandi), sister-in-law Joan, & many cousins, nieces,nephews, & her good friend Carol Chambers. We all thought the world of her. Joan graduated from St Paul’s & enjoyed attending the reunions. She would look forward to meeting her school friends for coffee & conversation at McDonalds off Upper Front St. She worked for many years at Scott Smith Construction, and from there to the office of what was then called the Ely Park Apartments. 

Joan enjoyed traveling and was able to experience the sites of Ireland, Bermuda, Alaska and Hawaii. But family was the most important thing to her. She was always there for any one of them who needed anything. She attended all Baptisms, birthday parties, First Communions, Confirmations, graduations, and weddings. She liked to keep up on the lives of her brothers & sister & their children. Over the years she crocheted many baby blankets that were donated to young mothers.  She also taught her sister-in-law Joan how to knit.  Countless hospital patients benefited from the many many units of blood she had donated because, as she would say,  “I can”.  That’s how she lived her life, being a very generous person always putting others first. 

The family and her friends will surely feel the void left by her passing. She truly was the glue that kept the family together. Her memory will be eternal. Matthew 25:23 Well done, good and faithful servant. 
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10am on Tuesday January 23 at St Paul’s Church at 15 Doubleday St Binghamton NY. Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery Johnson City NY.
