Brother and sister-in-law Bill and Linda Sullivan, Stow, Ohio, and numerous nieces and nephew.

Joann was married to William Mallory on January 21, 1977 and were midway through their 42nd year of a wonderful union together. 

Joann graduated from Indiana High School, Indiana, Pa. and attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She worked for Fisher Scientific for 28 years as an Administrative Assistant (and was a licensed Notary Public) until the company relocated to Wisconsin. She then worked in the Media Services Department of IUP until she retired in 2005. It was during the time she worked for the University that she completed two years of college courses. She was a member of the BPW (Business and Professional Women's Club) for many years and was elected to a number of local and district offices. She volunteered with several community organizations, including the Salvation Army, the American Red Cross and 'Daffodil Days'. 

Along with her husband, Joann was instrumental in forming the Indiana Ballroom Dance Club in December, 1989 and were active members until they moved to Georgia in 2010 to be nearer her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. 

Joann's interest/activities in her earlier years were dancing, hiking, sailing, canoeing, tent camping and tennis. In her later years, especially after relocating to Georgia, she enjoyed traveling with her husband on cruises, to resorts all across the country and on many, many day trips arranged by local Senior Centers. And, with those same Senior Centers, several extended, cross country motor coach trips. Joann especially looked forward to traveling with her children and grandchildren every year.

It should be said that Joann was also 'mother' to two beautiful, loving Irish Setters, Bonnie and Shannon, who adored her.

A beautiful private family service was held on June, 9th at Georgia Funeral Care Services, Acworth, Ga. at 10:00AM. Final interment will be near her parents graves at the Greenwood Cemetery in Indiana, Pa.  Please visit     if you wish to leave condolences or messages to the family under Joann Mallory's obituary.

It has been a pleasure to know Joann. She told me at our last meeting how much fun that she had been having- travelling and enjoying her family and newly found friends along with old friends. She told me that she and Mr. Mallory were having a great time and she was looking forward to upcoming trips. I wonder why things happen as I am certain most of us do. I thought of these 2 verses which I think can provide comfort. The first is a series of verses from proverbs 31:10-31 but my favorite within those is verse 28 : "Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. " Fitting for certain because both have occurred in speaking with you all. Also 1 Peter 3:4 "You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. " That verse describes the person I have known in Joann. It is a privilege to have known her. May God continue to comfort your family. Reply to this comment

Joann and Bill, an extended family we had growing up. Joann was always kind and curious and I remember the two of you gliding across the dance floor at our many family events. I am so sorry for your loss. May you stay connected to the love you had as you now move through the world. Reply to this comment

I remember Joann as an adventurous spirit! She came to visit my parents with Bill and was always up for fun experiences. She even got on the cart and allowed my miniature horse to pull her along the rails-to-trails pathway (enclosed photo). Joann was open-hearted, generous, kind, receptive, loving, and deeply devoted to her family. She spoke with pride about those she loved and it was important to her to be as supportive as possible in the best ways she could. I'll always savor the barbecue ribs she and Bill introduced us to. They were the best I've ever tasted, and even better when accompanied by stories of Joann and Bill's adventures. I am sending lots of love to Bill, family, and friends.

I am so sad to hear about the passing of Joann. She was such a sweet and graceful person. I always admired how 'put together' and 'calm' she always was. She was a great influence and role model. It was an honor to have been their real estate agent years ago when she and William bought their home in Dallas. My thoughts and prayers are with dear William and her family. - Dawn Faulkner Reply to this comment

We are honored to have known Joann, and blessed to have had her as our neighbor. It is rare to meet someone new who immediately touches your heart in a special way, but Joann was such a person. A true angel. We will cherish our time living next door to the Mallory's, and will miss Joann dearly. With most kind and loving regards, Brig. Gen. Reginald & Kim Neal Reply to this comment

Maureen and I were deeply saddened by the death of Joann. We can only remember some of the good times the four of us had together. Especially all of us working on puzzles at Orange Lake and Myrtle Beach. We had so many laughs together that we will never forget. Bill, please accept our deepest condolences on yourloss.As you mourn your loss of Joann we will also mourn that loss with you. Ron and Maureen Reply to this comment

I met Joann and William a few years ago through the Paulding Senior Center. We did many day trips together and this past year a bus trip to the Outer Banks. I enjoyed our time together on these trips and spending time together. I will miss her quiet ways and her humor. Rest in peace my friend. Reply to this comment

Joanne was a divorcee with children; William was a divorcee. I was privileged to know them both as dear friends, and finally introduced them to each other. I can't say that "sparks" flew, but the romance began and never ended. When they asked that I serve as their best man for their wedding, I was deeply honored. To observe--most recently "from a distance"-but originally as members of the Greater Indiana Community the kind and gracious interaction between these two "love birds" my heart was always shouting "Hooray"--there is hope for people who endure divorce. Their marriage was a "fairytale" of grace, compassion, and abiding love. We are all better for knowing Joanne and William. And in Joanne's passing, we know William will continue to carry the torch in her honor. Reply to this comment
