Funeral Mass for Joan Marie (nee Dzik) Demany, age 82, of Willoughby, will be 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. Noel Church, 35200 Chardon Rd., Willoughby Hills.
Mrs. Demany passed away Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at Heartland of Willoughby Nursing Home.
She was born August 2, 1936, in Detroit, Mich., to the late John and Mary (nee Dembowski) Dzik.
Joan graduated in 1953 from St. Casimir’s High School in Detroit, Mich., and received her Diploma of Nursing from the Mount Carmel Mercy School of Nursing in 1956.
She married Dr. Martial A. Demany May 7, 1960. Martial preceded her in death Sept. 19, 1983.
From 1962-1976, Joan was practicing as a registered nurse in various hospitals in Cleveland. In 1976, she assisted her husband Martial in opening and running his private cardiology practice and continued in this role until his death.
Joan’s hobbies included needlepoint, reading, cooking and baking. Her love of needlepoint translated in to opening her own shop, A World of Needlepoint. She also loved animals, and throughout the course of her life was surrounded by cats and dogs with various special needs that she adopted from animal shelters.
Joan is survived by her three children, Mark Demany of Willoughby, Margaret Demany of Philadelphia and Martha (Demany) Alikacem of Allen, Texas; son-in-law, Nadir Alikacem; and granddaughter, Leila Martial Alikacem.
Family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday at McMahon-Coyne-Vitantonio Funeral Home, 38001 Euclid Ave., Willoughby. Burial will be in All Souls Cemetery in Chardon Township.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Heartland Hospice Memorial Fund, 4807 Rockside Rd., Suite #110, Independence, OH 44131 or The Lake Humane Society, 7564 Tyler Blvd., Bldg. E, Mentor, OH 44060.

I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of Ms. Joan. I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family and dear friends. Words fail at a time like this. It is truly comforting to know that our Heavenly Father is aware of what we are going through, especially at a time like this. Psalm 147:3 says that God “heals the broken-hearted.. he binds their wounds” It is my prayer that you all receive a measure of comfort and peace during this difficult time.

To the family of Joan Demany. May you please accept my deepest sympathies. Death is by no means an easy trial to go trough. But God has brought so much comfort to so many and will always continue to help anyone in need (2 Corinthians 2:3,4).

Joan was my friend for 35 years. We went through many joys and sorrows together. But I will always remember her role in the St. Noel choir; her generosity and her love for us. After losing Martial, she found comfort in our community. And she was a faithful example of loving her neighbors and family as the Gospel calls us to do. We loved her Rocky Road Fudge Brownies! And everything she brought to our parties and picnics. If you got one of her needlepoint projects as a gift, you recognized talent and effort with each stroke. She loved people; and we loved her!

Thanks for this MIckey - you were a superb friend to her and continue to be a great friend and support to Mark and me. I'm so glad I was able to get you to that Cleveland Indians game ----- even if it did rain and they did lose.
