Joan Emond died during the early hours of February 19, 2019, after suffering a long illness. She went peacefully in her sleep shortly after being surrounded by her loving family and friends.

Joan was born July 1, 1950 in Madawaska, ME to working class parents, Conrad Fongemie and Berthrande Fongemie (Daigle), both deceased. She was the youngest of three children. She attended and graduated from Madawaska High School. She eventually moved to CT and met her future husband, Roland Emond. They had two children, Mark and Tina.

She worked for a while as an operator at the Southern New England Telephone company. But she worked most of her life as a waitress, working at Olympia Diner for over 22 years on the overnight shift. This enabled her to be home during the day to raise her children. She served countless people and was well known to her regular customers. She loved to interact with people and all that knew her loved her as well. They called her “Joanie”. After her children were grown, she went to work at another restaurant for a few years but eventually ended up at Kizl’s, where she worked for several years until her retirement.

She was there for the birth of her daughter’s children, Ella and Jacob Joslin, in June of 2006. She attended the wedding of her son, Mark in 2010 to his beautiful wife Lisa. After being divorced for many years, she rekindled a relationship to Nelson Pelletier, a school friend from Maine. He pursued her after finding out they had been living only a few miles apart from each other for years. All was well with the world until a tragic overdose took her daughter’s life in May of 2012. She was never the same after that. Her health declined steadily for years following the death of Tina, her youngest child.

She is survived by her partner, Nelson Pelletier, her son, Mark Emond and his wife Lisa , sister, Gerri Theriault and her husband Rejean and brother, Conrad Fongemie and his wife Patricia.

Per Joan’s request there will be no calling hours and the burial will be private. If you’d like to share a memory of Joan, you can go to the Paul A. Shaker Funeral Home website at
