Joan (Drew) Clark 90, of Salisbury


SALISBURY — Joan (Drew) Clark, 90, of Salisbury, Vt., passed away in the early morning hours on June 15, 2024, with her nieces and friends by her side.

She was born in Glover, Vt., the daughter of Alson Drew and Clara Peck. Joan graduated from Mount Ida College and began her career as a lab technician in Bennington, Vt. She lived in Pownal, Vt., with her first husband, Cliff Giroux. Joan and her second husband were the owners of World Wide Travel Agency in Middlebury, Vt., for several years. They enjoyed the benefits of the industry and traveled the world together.

Joan loved being an aunt, sister, wife and friend to so many people. If you were fortunate enough to have known her, she made everyone feel like you were her favorite. She would never forget a birthday, anniversary or holiday without sending a handwritten note or card. She was the life of the party and enjoyed making people laugh with her poems, riddles and great sense of humor.

She was predeceased by her two sisters, Jean Wisnowski and Jane Daisey. She leaves behind four nieces, Holly Hathaway, Pandora Daisey, Penney Adams and Pamela McMahon and a nephew, Tom Wisnowski. Also, she left behind all her wonderful grand nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Joan, (aka Chi Chi, Joanne, Joan, Joey and Dee Dee), will be sorely missed by all of her extended family members.

We want to thank Bayada Hospice for their caring love and support during the final week of her life.

There will be a celebration of life at the home of Holly and Eric Hathaway, 411 Quiet Lane, Salisbury, Vt., on Aug. 29.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the VFW in Middlebury or your favorite charity in memory of Joan Clark.

Arrangements under the direction of Sanderson-Ducharme Funeral Home. Online condolences at ◊
