Obituary of Joan Eagan Dreissigacker

On October, 27,2021, Joan Eagan Dreissigacker passed away in her home, at the age of 91, surrounded by her loving, devoted and caring family. Joan married John {Jack} Dreissigacker} in September of 1952, in Niagara Falls, N.Y., where she was born in August 1930 and raised. Soon after, they moved to Wilmington in 1953, with their "precious baby" John, at just weeks old, "as she called him" and all of their meager worldly belongings, to build their two homes, on Whiteface Memorial Highway. That was their first and last, major move. They loved and lived on the Mountain, until each of them passed. They had four more children together and had many close friends over the years, while living in the Adirondacks. Joan leaves her children: John, Phil, Sue, Doug, Patti and their Spouses. Along with her Seven Grandchildren, Five Great~Grandchildren and one Brother, David. Also, many Nieces and Nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Jack, Parents, Sisters and Brothers. Joan had a certain ZEST for life one might say, especially if it involved a "Gram Galavant" to ANYWHERE and ENDLESS pairs of "Rose Colored Glasses." She loved with her whole being and was a very devoted Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mom, Mother-in-Law, Gram, Aunt and Friend. There will be no service or calling hours, as per her wishes.
