Joan Marie (Richea) Zenitz, age 86, of N. Chelmsford, MA, formerly of Albany, N.Y., passed away on Monday, September 23, 2019. She was born August 25, 1933 in Albany, NY where she resided most of her life.

She was a compassionate hospital, school, and workplace nurse, as well as using her nursing background in positions with the NYS Dept. of Social Services. In addition to holding leadership roles in her religious community, she enjoyed music, gardening, reading, nature and the outdoors, animals, children, and family, and was a busy and active person her entire life. A very beloved mother to her two children, a devoted and loving daughter to her mother, as well as a loving wife, she touched neighbors, co-workers and other people with her empathy, good heart, graciousness, generosity, and loveliness, and will be greatly missed by all.
