Joan Deinhardt Obituary

Joan Marie (Mee) Deinhardt, 92, of Binghamton, NY, went home to be with her Lord, her husband and her son, on Wednesday, February 7th, 2024. Her family was by her side, surrounding her with love. Joan was a cherished mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. Her loyalty, love and devotion were second to none. She set the bar super high as a loving mother.
Joan was pre-deceased by her loving husband of 42 years Joseph Francis “Red” Deinhardt, Sr. and infant son Joseph Francis Deinhardt, Jr. Her beautiful parents Francis Patrick Mee and Mary Cecilia Mulloy-Mee, her only sibling Thomas Francis “Tommy” Mee (wife Marion.) Joan adored her brother with the “jet black hair” who played guitar and loved his little sister. She would wait in the front window of their childhood home watching for his return from school. We are sure Tommy was beside Red and Joseph Jr. waiting for her entrance to Heaven. She was also predeceased by her niece Betsy Deinhardt.
She is survived by her adoring daughter Mary Cecilia Deinhardt Kelly and husband Brent Michael Kelly, and two precious grandsons that had her whole heart, John Francis Kelly & Conor Joseph Kelly. She never missed one of their many baseball games. She is also survived by sister-in-law Jacqueline (Brady) Deinhardt, her Godson-nephew Kurt William Deinhardt & nieces Lisa Lapallo and Barbara Heath. She is also survived by several nieces, nephews and cousins in the Deinhardt, Plahanski and Mulloy families. 
Joan was a graduate of St. Mary’s and St. Paul’s Catholic Schools, Class of 1949. She was a member of the Legion of Mary for many years and also the Chenango Bridge Garden Club. Joan loved to travel, but one of her favorite places was Echo Lake where she created many happy memories with family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Joan retired from Singer-Link Aviation where she proudly served as an Executive Secretary for many years.
