Obituary for Joanne C. Daly

Joanne C. Daly (former spouse of Albert Gremp), born and raised in Chicago, formerly of Chicago Heights and Oak Park, most recently of Westchester, died peacefully at home following a very brief illness surrounded by her adoring children.

Beloved mother of Mary-Jo (Gerald) Dempsey, William (Tammie Champie) Gremp, Catherine (Louis) Williams, and Maureen (John) Schmidt. She took special joy as a grandmother to the late Michael (Dawn) Furman; Jeffrey (Lisa) Furman, Andrew, Samuel, Megan Gremp, Jeremy (Celina) Williams, Joshua and Gabriel Williams; Colleen, Emily and Mary Schmidt; and loving great-grandmother to many.

Dearest sister of Eleanor (the late Martin) Blenz of California; preceded in death by her parents, Elizabeth and Walter Daly; her siblings, Walter (Mary) Daly; Sister Elizabeth Daly, O.P.; and Gerald Daly, and her firstborn grandson, Michael Furman. Kind and loving aunt to many nieces and nephews and their families and special, caring friend to all those whose life she touched, both near and far.

Joanne went back to school as an adult to become a nurse, a role she excelled at in extending her loving care to others in their times of need. She was a truly dedicated employee at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital for over twelve years before moving to United Healthcare where she retired in 2005. She enjoyed her retirement spending time with her children and grandchildren creating memories that will last our lifetimes.
