JoAnne Marie Wozniak, 68, of Beaver Falls, passed away peacefully Thursday, December 22, 2022, at Good Samaritan Hospice, Heritage Valley – Beaver following a decades-long fight with breast cancer. Born August 1, 1954, she was a daughter of the late William and Anne (Mihok) Oskowski. A lifelong healer, Ms. Wozniak worked in multiple nursing and nurse education roles at then-Sewickley Hospital and the Medical Center/Heritage Valley—Beaver, where she helped establish the hospital’s cardiac critical care unit. She later worked as a medical technology consultant, where she continued training medical professionals. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Masters of Science in Nursing from Carlow College and LaRoche College, served as a Sunday School teacher, and loved gardening, including recently becoming certified as a Penn State Master Gardener. She also loved cooking, traveling, and hosting parties for Halloween, New Year’s, and just to gather friends together.

Surviving are a devoted son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Jackie Wozniak, of Alexandria, VA; and daughter and son-in-law, Sara Wozniak-Randall and Chris Randall, of Snoqualmie, WA; two grandchildren, Caleb and Rebekah, who loved Grandma’s late-night ice cream and movie parties; her sister Susan (Alan) Shaffer and brother William (Michelle) Oskowski; her cat Mo; and many family and friends.

    Condolences to JoAnne’s family and close friends. She was a force or nature (in a positive way) and I am grateful to have met her during her time at BD/Alaris. We often exchanged book recommendations and I admired her fight, grit and positive attitude as she worked through her cancer diagnosis.
