Mrs. Visokay taught 1st grade her entire teaching career, primarily at Columbus School in Bridgeport. Joan took great joy in helping others, especially taking care of her family and educating children. She was a very patient, loving, selfless and spunky woman with a good sense of humor. Joan played Bridge faithfully with her neighborhood friends every Tuesday, and later in life when her children were grown, became an avid reader of Danielle Steel novels. Occasionally, she would enjoy playing golf, with her husband on the weekends. She will be deeply missed by her four devoted children, Brian Visokay of Putnam Valley, NY, Megan Adams and her husband Mark of Fairfield, Elisia Grogan and her husband John of Fairfield and Richard C. Visokay of Fairfield; three cherished grandchildren, Caitlin Grogan, and Colin and Kyle Adams; She was predeceased by her son, Kevin Visokay and a sister, Mary E. Carley.
