Joan B. Porter (1936 – 2022)
Joan B. Porter, 85, of Upper Saucon Township died Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2022, at her residence. She was the wife of Franklyn J. Porter for over 60 years. Joan was born in Uniontown, Pa., on Dec. 22, 1936, to the late John and Helen (Vojtkovsky) Hudock and was predeceased by her brother, James. As a teacher’s aide in the Palisades School District for over 30 years, she enhanced the lives of many young children who knew her only as “Mrs. P” until her retirement. She was known as JoAnn by most of those who were touched by her ripple of Life. She enjoyed exploring ways to channel her creative nature, but her passion was seeking out clarity and understanding only to conclude that “Life is enough.”

(Marie E.) of Coopersburg; siblings: Joyce (John) Evertt in Ohio, Thomas in California; grandchildren: John M.
