|Let the memory of Joan Anne be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of Mom mom, Joan Anne Reed-Ljachin. She was an amazing grandmother, mother, wife, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. She was given by God on June 22, 1937 and taken by God on January 18, 2011. She accomplished so much in her 73 years with us. She leaves behind her loving, devoted husband Alex Ljachin, 7 Children (Joe, Donna, Linda, Diane, Joanne, Billy, & Theresa), 17 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren, all of whom she touched in a special way. Her family loved her beyond words, and she loved them very much; it showed it everything she did. She was sadly taken from us way too soon, but we will remember her forever. Please help us remember the happy times, funny stories, and the memories she shared with all those who had the privledge of knowing her, and share them with us; help us keep her alive in our hearts. The world truly lost one of the greatest women I've ever known...but God gained the perfect angel and she will be watching over each one of us.

"I am so so sorry for your loss. I didn't know her well but remember the warmest of smiles. As teenagers we spent many a nite at "Little T's" house and Mrs. Reed welcomed us all knowing how loud and rowdy we would be. She would just smile and open the door on up for us. My sincere condolences to you all that this time. Karen Girard"
"A huge part of my teenage years were being part of the Reed family. I never called Joan by her name it was Mom! As we all did.She always welcomed us to her home and she is what made that house a home. I loved, respected and very much thought of Mom as years went on and I grew older. She will always hold a large part of my heart and life! My thoughts and prayers go out to the Reed family. Dennis"

"Mom mom, I don't know where to begin. I don't know how to move on...I don't believe it's real; you're just away on one of your amazing vacations with Pop pop Alex. I am numb and all I need right now is to hear your voice and feel your hug. You made everything better! You were there for us through everything, we did everything together! I need you back. I need you at my wedding...."

When I worked in Germantown I would always try to drive by her house just to make sure everything was okay! I will never forget her!"
