Joanne M. Holt of Copake, NY passed away Saturday, December 16, 2017 at Columbia Memorial Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Born July 17, 1942 in Catskill, NY, she was the daughter of the late Louis and Jeannette (Benino) Bonafide.
She graduated from St. Patrick’s Academy in 1960 and attended Mildred Elley Business School. She worked in the medical records department at the Greene County Memorial Hospital in Catskill, NY and was the manager of Triple S Blue Stamps in Catskill, NY.
On New Years Eve in Times Square, she met her “sailor boy”, the love of her life, Amon D. Holt. Married January 22, 1975, they spent 30 precious years together until his death in 2005. Before they made their home in Copake, NY, they were stationed in Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico and in Charleston, SC, where she frequently reminded us that she made sloppy joes for the USO.
She loved her cats, origami, music and especially spending time with her family.
She is survived by her sister and brother in law, Cindy and Deryll Miller; nieces, Melissa Miller and Jennifer (David) Mosher; her great niece, Elora Mosher; many amazing cousins, nieces, nephews and godchildren.
