Joanne Margaret Brosh passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, March 5, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.

Joanne was born August 11, 1930, the eldest daughter of John and Margaret Dougherty. Joanne married Robert Brosh on June 21, 1952, and was blessed with six children: Margey (Craig Detweiler) Brosh, Ed (Ruth Ann) Brosh, Dave (Becky) Brosh, Cathy (Bob) Strasser, Richard (Sandie) Brosh, and Bobby (Kathy) Brosh; sixteen grandchildren, and fifteen great-grandchildren.

Joanne was a graduate of Wheeling Hospital School of Nursing, and started her career at King Edward VII Hospital in Bermuda, where her husband was stationed in the Navy. Upon Joanne’s return to WV, she worked at Wheeling Hospital for several years. When her eldest daughter started college, Joanne returned to the workforce as a registered nurse at Good Shepherd Nursing Home, until her youngest child completed his undergraduate degree. Joanne retired in 1985, and subsequently enjoyed years of travel, golf, and spending time with her family. She was a member of the Wheeling Park Golf Club and the Oglebay Women’s Golf Association.

The family would like to thank Joanne’s loving caregivers, and also Dr. Dan Wilson and his staff, and Leo Boissy.

I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt JoAnn. Will be keeping all of you in my prayers and thoughts. I won’t be able to come to the funeral home this weekend , I’m laid up with my ankle, I’m still no weight-bearing. She was a wonderful person and was great to work with.

My dear aunt Joanne was also a treasured friend. I appreciated her way of looking at life and her deep faith. I remember so many breakfasts and dinners at her house over the years. Her deep love for her children and grandchildren was always evident. She was so proud of you all. You are in my prayers. May God console you.
