Colletta Joan Montfort passed away peacefully with her family nearby on Saturday, December 18, 2021.

She preferred to be called Joan by family and friends.  She was born on December 7, 1934 in Belmond, Iowa.  She moved to Central Florida from Chicago, Illinois in 1997.

Joan was of Irish and Austrian decent.  She was once bold enough to take a solo trip to her family’s ancestral hometown of Cork, County Cork, Ireland.  Home to her Irish Sullivan namesakes.

Joan was employed by the United States Government for over 25 years.  She enjoyed boating and cruise excursions and was a member of the Cocoa Beach Sail and Power Squadron, an affiliate of the United States Power Squadron and The America’s Boating Club.  She loved being on the water.

Joan leaves behind her son, Marc Montfort of Cocoa Beach, Florida, son and daughter-in-law Dennis and Evelyn Montfort of Inverness, Florida, son and daughter-in-law Trueman and Tammy Montfort II of Bushwood, Maryland; granddaughters Elysa Anne Montfort of Edgewater, Maryland, and Elyse Joan Montfort of Sanford, Florida; grandsons Trueman C.S. Montfort III of Bushwood, Maryland, and Kenneth Joseph Montfort of Denver, Colorado; great grandson Erik Lyn Sally; and great granddaughter Victoria Olympia Rose Herzog.

Joan has touched so many lives. She had so many friends throughout her lifetime and was loved by all.  She will be truly missed by everyone that was fortunate to know her.

God,  give her peace and look after her always.

    I am so sorry to hear of Joan's passing. She was a most extraordinary woman and amazing character in so, so many ways. My husband and I were friends with her in the 80s into the 90s in Chicago when she introduced us to each other in 1992. We have so many great memories of fabulous times with Joan. An absolutely gorgeous person inside and out. RIP Sullivan with an "i".

    Joan was one of our dearest friends. She started out as a real estate client but quickly became much more as she was a pleasure to be around and with a fun loving personality. We shared many good times and laughter together. She introduced me to the Cocoa Beach Power Squadron which contributed to many new friendships and boating activities. She loved the water and her boat the “Sea Joan”. We always enjoyed going out to lunch or dinner and the many social activities, her favorite like St Paddy’s Day at her home in Canaveral Groves. I always knew her birthday and her age because she told me she was having her 7th birthday party when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. We are so blessed to have known her and she is truly missed. Rest in peace my friend.

    Joan, we have spent many years as friends, since 2003. I loved your spunk and determination. We have done so many things together, including, organizing your St. Patrick’s day parties, sharing Power Squadron events and cruises. I will miss our lunches together with Marsha. You were always the life of the party! Rest in Peace, dearest friend. I miss you!

    i will always remember Joanie for her warm smile and her laughter. She was a true friend. I will miss her. She, i and our friend Karen (who sadly passed a few days before she did) had the best of times on our trips to Puerto Rico and a cruise to Central America. She lit up the room when she walked in. Always a delight. i will miss both my friends. RIP, Joanie. I love you... Always

    I met Joan several years ago at the Cocoa Beach Sail and Power Squadron. Theresa and I became friends with Joan and had many good times with her. We were so saddened to hear of her passing. She will be missed by many. Our sincere condolences to her family.
    RIP Joan

    Mom was unique personality. A brilliant mind and a strong-willed woman. There were a few things she could not accomplish. She was not always easy but neither were her sons. We will miss her dearly. Dennis Monfort
