Joan Marie Mcfarland

April 16, 1931 — July 7, 2021

Joan Marie “Joanie” McFarland, 90, of Gray, left for her next great adventure on Wednesday, July 7, 2021.

She was a native of Little Compton, Rhode Island, and daughter of the late Frank and Anna Silvia.

Joanie was a loving Wife, beloved Mother, and devoted Nana. She enjoyed spending her days with family, especially if she could make it a picnic. Every wrong turn was a chance for a new experience, and she will always be remembered for trying to make life more fun.
While her family was a great source of joy to her, so was he career. Joanie worked for over 50 years as a nurse, putting great amounts of time and effort into the care that she offered to others.

She was a member of Mountain View Baptist Church, enjoying every opportunity she had to attend.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Francis Silvia, and her sister, Anna Farrar.

Those surviving include: her husband of nearly 50 years, Dennis McFarland; children, Mark McFarland, Tracy Mitchell and husband Jack; grandchildren, Jack, Nicole, Shane, and Lucas; great grandchildren, Zaden, Lincoln, James, Turner, Cooper, and Nova Sky.

The family of Joanie McFarland will receive friends from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM on Monday, July 12, 2021, at Morris-Baker Funeral Home. Those attending are asked to celebrate a life well lived as Joanie embarks on her new adventure, rather than grieve her leaving to do so.
