May 20, 1930 - June 10, 2019

In the afternoon of June 10, 2019, Joan M Obie of New Port Richey, Florida went to her Eternal Life at the age of 89. Joan was born in New York to Robert and Eleanor Boyle on May 20, 1930. She received her Bachelor’s degree from St Francis College and her Master’s degree attending Fordham University and New York University.

After joining the Sister’s of St Joseph in Brentwood NY, she taught in numerous schools in Brooklyn and Rockaway, New York. Later she taught at Gulf High School in New Port Richey, Florida. She impacted generations of students during her 40 years as an educator and she “loved every minute of it”. She was a devoted member for 37 years at St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church where she served as a Lecturer and Eucharistic Minister.

She is predeceased by her brother Robert Boyle and her sister Carolyn Crowley.

She is survived by her husband, Donald Obie, his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as two generations of her nieces and nephews.

She spent the last 20 years of her life with her loving spouse and best friend. They were blessed to have had this precious time together. Joan and Don joyfully traveled the world. They enjoyed playing golf together in the both woman and men’s leagues while living happily at Timber Greens. Joan considered  these years “a little piece of Heaven”. Joan always said, “I have had a good life and I have no regrets”. She will be sadly missed by her family and faithful friends.
