Joan S Wilson, age 88 of Melbourne, entered into rest on February 8, 2020. Born in West Haven, CT she came to Brevard County in 1980 from Bethany, CT.

Joan was a loving mother and grandmother who was cared for by all who she developed relationships with throughout her wonderful years. Being retired Joan took great pleasure by occupying her time in knitting newborn baby hats for hospitals such as Holmes Regional Medical Center and Cape Canaveral Hospital, in turn donating thousands over the past 20 years. She absolutely loved living on the Indian River, spending time with her family and enjoying nature on her river view balcony. Joan will forever be loved and deeply missed.
