Joanne Brown of Wayside passed away Wednesday January 17, surrounded by her family. She was 79. She was born in New York, and lived most of her life in Wayside. She was a loving, wife, mother, and grandmother who opened her heart to all those around her. She loved to cook the most delicious meals, garden, vacation on Cape Cod, spend time at the beach and the family pool, and walk the boards with her husband.
