Joanne J. O'Fee, age 59, of Newfoundland died Saturday, April 12, 2014 following an illness. 

Ms. O'Fee was born February 23, 1955 in Brooklyn, NY and was the daughter of Gloria Fricano and the late Joseph Messina. 

Joanne was a writer at heart, pouring her soul onto paper her whole life. She was an arts and crafts addict, forming gifts and trinkets, masterpieces from yarn, sticks and glue... 

She spent her working years as a tax examiner, a refund adjuster, for the Internal Revenue Service. She really enjoyed her work, as she was one of the "good guys" who'd adjust your refund up and made sure you were getting more money. 

She is survived by two sons: Rory & his wife, Sarah O'Fee of Hawley, PA; Anthony DiLeva of Long Island, NY Grandchildren, Savannah & Declan O'Fee of Hawley, PA; her mother, Gloria Messina; sister & brother-in-law, Paula & Dan McGlynn of Long Island, NY.

Services will be held at a time to be announced.
Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, Pike Unit, 110 W. Harford St, Milford, PA 18337
