Joan Marie Sabatino, 66, died October 16, 2007 after a brief
illness. A lifelong resident of Mechanicville, Joan was a registered nurse for over 40 years, many of them at the Leonard
Hospital in Troy. She was a voracious reader who often could be seen with a book in her lap. She also enjoyed all of the social
activities and services at St. Peter's Church in Troy, often taking trips with other members and friends. Another great joy
in her life was her eight grandchildren.
She is survived by three daughters, Linda Johnson of Dalton
Ga., Laura Sabatino of Mechanicville, Lorraine Maloney of Cohoes, and one son, William Sabatino of Mechanicville. Joan is
also survived by two sisters, Judy Johnson of Ariz. and Jane Morrison of Mechanicville.
