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.

    JoAnne was one of the most amazing women I’ve ever met. What an honor and privilege to know her, call her friend, and serve alongside her so many times on our Mexico mission trips. Jo was funny and kind and courageous and generous and compassionate and oh how she loved her kids!!! I’m a better person for having known her; she blessed us all and we will miss her until we can be with her again. My deepest sympathy to all who loved her so much, especially Richard and Sara and her grandchildren. I will be keeping you in my heart and prayers. Thank you, JoAnne, for living so well ❤️
