Obituary

Joan Marie Wickham

Joan passed away on Saturday, April 11, 2020.  She was born to Edward and Jeanette Wolfe in Baldwin, LI, NY.  Joan met Ron, the love of her life, while attending Parsons School of Design, NYC in 1950.

Ron was called back to serve in the Marine Corps in September, and he and Joan were married in the Cathedral of the Incarnation, Garden City, NY in December 1950.  After they raised their four children in Huntington, NY, they moved to Pelican Bay, Daytona Beach in 1987.  Joan went into real estate in 1988, specializing in Pelican Bay.  Through her efforts she sold many homes during her 30 years in the business, making many dear friends along the way.  Both Joan and Ron enjoyed the many social activities as members of the Pelican Bay Country Club.  Joan’s husband, Ron predeceased her, as well as their first born son, Keith.

She is survived by her daughter, Bonnie Wickham, son, Mark Wickham (Janet), son Scott.  Her grandchildren include Brad Williams (Corrie), Garrett and Carson Fulmer, Roxanne Wickham, Lauren and Heather Wickham.  Her great grandchildren include Owen Williams, Emmaline Williams, Graham Williams, and Reed Williams.  Joan is also survived by her loving sisters, Patricia Kettle and Peggy Topper (Martin).  Her family meant everything to her.

A celebration of life will be help at Grace Episcopal Church, Port Orange at a later date due to the Coronavirus, with the Rev. Rick Burhans officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Grace Episcopal Church or Hospice of Volusia/Flagler counties.

    Grammy, as I have called her for 38 years, has meant more to me than words can express. She has always loved and gone out of her way for me from the time I was a boy. I have had the privilege of spending weeks at a time with her and each moment is honestly a blessing that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Grammy loved grandpa so well setting such a beautiful example of what love looks like. She loved all of us so well. She really loved people. She loved God. She loved the beach that He created. She was the most strong, intelligent, loving, dedicated, wonderful, amazing person and bright light of a grandmother to me. She was more than I could have ever asked for as a grandmother. I will miss her smile and her warmth for a time and I know I will see her again. I love you grammy!

    Grammy was the patriarch of our family. She was the classiest woman I’ve ever known. She was smart, honest, loving, and the only person I know who could read an entire book in a single night. Every second I spent with her was a blessing and she will never leave my heart. I couldn’t have asked for a better grandmother or role model. I will miss her always and do the best I can to carry on her legacy. I love you so much Grammy.

    Joan was both charming and thoughtful. Most helpful to both Mort and myself. Enjoyed my phone calls to Florida-updating what is
    happening and personal input. Though I did not see Joan often, she will be missed by us.
