Joan  Fonda (Paro)

POTSDAM – Mrs. Joan E. Fonda, 88, a longtime resident of State Highway 11B, passed away Sunday afternoon, April 29, 2018 at the St. Regis Nursing Home, where she had been under their care and the loving care of her daughter, Patti Jo and son, Robert, for the past year.

Joan was born March 9, 1930 in Canton, the daughter of the late Leon J. and Evelyn M. (LaShomb) Paro and was graduate of Potsdam High School. On November 27, 1947, she married Pascal J. Fonda at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with Rev. Charles Richards, officiating. Pascal predeceased her on August 19, 1999.

Joan worked for a time at the A&P, Potsdam Bowling Alley, and was a cook at the Theta Xi Fraternity. She then went to work in the kitchen at Lawrence Avenue Elementary School and retired as the kitchen manager at St. Mary’s School. She was also a 25-year member of the Potsdam Volunteer Rescue Squad and enjoyed knitting.

Joan is survived by her children, Robert and Mary Fonda of Fort Jackson; John and Donna Fonda of Virginia; and Patricia “Patti Jo” Mitchell of North Bangor; her grandchildren, Michael Mitchell, Julie Yates, Jessica, Amanda, Jennifer, and Maribeth Fonda; and her great grandchildren, Brynn, Geo, and Kelsea.

In addition to her parents and her husband, she was predeceased by a son, Bruce Fonda in October 2005 and a son-in-law, David Mitchell on April 24, 2017.

Services will be held privately at the convenience of the family with burial in St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to Potsdam Volunteer Rescue Squad.
