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.
