Joanne G Perkins of Poughkeepsie, NY, moved on to the house of the Lord, September 17, 2020 after a short stay at Vassar Hospital. Joanne was born June, 1934 in Collingswood NJ, attended Collingswood High School and was married in1957. Mom is survived by her two children Karen Jones of Poughkeepsie, NY and Mark Perkins of Old Greenwich CT. Growing up Mom always kept a welcoming house for our friends. She always had words of encouragement for anyone who was having a hard time. Her smile, love for people and their wellbeing will be greatly missed. Joanne was known as “Mommom” or Grandma to her 4 grandchildren. She cherished and adored, Dana Jones, Danny Jones, Mason Perkins and Trevor Perkins. Mom had such great love and devotion for her grandchildren. Joanne so enjoyed lunches and dinners with her friends, cultural events in the Hudson Valley, attending the Philharmonic, church activities, and proudly working with AA, she would have been 36 years sober in October. Joanne was always there for anyone who needed support or a kick in the pants. A private memorial will be held at her resting place in Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery. Joanne had a very personal cause, SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). In lieu of cards and/or flowers, please consider donating to

To Karen and Family, So sorry to hear about the passing of your mom and the grandmother of your children. I am sure this will be a difficult time in all your lives. She was such a vital part of your family and especially for your children since they were born.
I use to see her when she lived at the Commons in Poughkeepsie. We would always talk and during many our conversations she would always say, " Everyday is a blessing." She truly loved her family and friends.
My deepest sympathy to everyone.

Karen, Dana, and Danny,
We are so sorry to hear about Joanne's passing. She obviously loved you very much. I think she may have given me a gentle kick in the pants once. :) Love to all of you. - the Caramicos
