Obituary for Joan Jennie Husson

Joan J. Husson “Sitto”
Passed in peace on Saturday May 9, 2020 at the age of 75. Joan was born July 22, 1944 in Lowell, MA to parents Thomas E. Saad and Dora (Mansour) Saad.

Joan is survived by her husband Joseph L. Husson of Nashua, NH. Joe and Joan shared almost 49 wonderful years of marriage. They were best friends and enjoyed traveling together to Alaska, Aruba, Mexico, Europe, and visiting family in Maryland. Most recently, Joe and Joan became quite competitive at the game of cribbage. A local favorite of Joan’s was Petey’s in Rye, NH where during the summer she enjoyed a basket of fried clams.

Loving mother to and survived by Joseph T. Husson and daughter-in-law Kari E. Husson of Windham, NH and Joshua D. Husson and daughter-in-law Melissa Wall of Nashua, NH. She always offered a kind ear and unbiased advice whenever her children needed it. Her children were her pride and joy.

Joan became an ADORING grandmother to seven grandbabies! Survived by Abigail 17, Emily 16, Sam 15, Max 15, Ryan 15, Meghan 12 and Benjamin 11. You wouldn’t know a physically small heart could produce such a large amount of love until you saw Sitto with her grandchildren. She was a die hard showing up in rain, sleet, snow, wind or shine to support her grandchildren at as many of their events as she could.

Joan grew up in the “Acre” of Lowell Massachusetts. Her parents passed away when she was very young and she learned at a young age the meaning of strength. It was this strength that bonded her with her siblings. Coming from humble beginnings she was grateful for a rich heritage and a diverse community. Preceded in death by sister Maryann Zaharias and brother-in-law Charlie Zaharias of Pelham NH. Survived by sister Barbara Beaudry and brother-in-law Raymond Beaudry of Hudson NH. Also survived by brother Thomas Saad and sister-in-law Evelyn Saad of Windham NH.

Joan was a devoted communicant at Saint George’s Antiochian Orthodox Church in Lowell, MA. Where she enjoyed many years of service and being a member of the Ladies club.

She is also survived by an abundance of extended family, loving nieces, nephews and friends who also meant the world to her. If there is one common denominator in all of this it would be Joan’s love to all that were near and dear to her.

SERVICES: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic they are limited to only private family services. The family will be having a celebration of life for all to attend when it is safe to do so. In lieu of flowers the family would like donations made in Joan’s honor to Saint George’s Antiochian Orthodox Church, 44 Bowers St. Lowell, MA 01854. The DAVIS FUNERAL HOME, One Lock St., Nashua has been placed in charge of arrangements. An online guest book is available at, (603-883-3401) “ONE MEMORY LIGHTS ANOTHER”.

"Joanne" was a welcome addition to our team at Fred C Church. Always happy, laughing and willing to help. A God send for our automobile registration questions and considered the guru of MA automobile for all of us. I enjoyed working with her and have happy memories of her to keep forever. She was so very proud of her children and grandchildren, I'm glad she was able to spend so much time with each of you. In deepest sympathy for her entire family. Patty Smith

Joe, Barbara, Tom and Family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Joan. She was certainly a very bright light in everyone's life. I certainly remember the times you were all together, she made me laugh so much I wanted to pee my pants. She loved life and her family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time. I did not know it until today that she passed but now i know why the rain storm on Saturday, she and Maryann could not contain themselves in Heaven. God Bless, Pat(Fifie) Consentino

Dear Joe and entire family:
I met Joanie, Barb and their niece Melanie years ago at Fred C. Church as a young teenager (approx 1982) Melanie and I as you know have been inseparable ever since. “Aunt Joanie “ and I had an incredible bond -the day I no longer was going to work with her we hugged and cried. But I was blessed to have her throughout my life - every time I would get to see her it was as if no time had passed always making me feel special. She was an incredible mother, grandmother, wife, sister and friend. She absolutely adored her boys and grandchildren and she had a love for all those close to her. She always listened with a caring heart. I will never forget Joanie. May she Rest In Peace.
