On Monday, November 15, 2021, God called one of His angels, Joan E. (Franzen) Salamon, to Heaven. She had been the loving wife of Stanley Salamon for nearly 48 years.
Joan was born in Waterbury on March 30, 1937 to the late Frank Franzen and Margaret (Nichols) Grith and had been a longtime Southington resident.
She worked as an Avon sales consultant for 50 years, greeting all of her customers with a friendly “Tis I your Avon Lady.” Joan loved to travel, especially to her vacation home in FL, and two of her most memorable trips were to Paris and Egypt. Joan was a longtime devoted member at First Congregational Church in Southington. She was a passionate shopper and loved to visit tag sales and flea markets, and even made a debut on one of her favorite shows, Flea Market Flip. Joan also earned the title as a “personal” shopper by her family. She enjoyed organizing the Church Rummage Sale with her niece, Emily and one of her passions was making baskets for the veterans at Christmas. Joan enjoyed cooking and baking and will be remembered for her delicious meatloaf, banana bread, apple pie and chocolate chip cookies. She especially loved to bake sweets with Bear and loved shopping with Tee.
In addition to her husband Stanley, she is survived by her daughter, Lisa Charette and her husband Stephen; her son Todd Fleming; one granddaughter Valerie Fleming and two great-grandchildren, Tianna and Garrett. She is also survived by her sister, Roberta Colucci and her husband David, her brother Frank Franzen of California and many nieces and nephews. Joan was predeceased by her daughter, Sheri E. Fleming and her sister, Sara Satterfield.
Please don’t be sad. Joan has gone fishing at the Big Lake in Heaven where the fish are always biting. Next time you help your fellow man, know that she will be smiling down on you.
Joan’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors and nurses at the HOCC at New Britain for their dedicated and excellent care.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Joan’s memory may be made to the First Congregational Church, 37 Main St, Southington, CT 06489.
A funeral service will be held 11:30 a.m. on Monday. November 22, 2021 at the First Congregational Church, 37 Main St, Southington, CT 06489. Burial will follow in Quinnipiac Cemetery, Southington.
