Joan I. Avery Allen of Saugerties, NY passed away on Friday, March 17, 2023 at the age of 88. Joan was born on March 2, 1935 in Lomontville, the daughter of the late Raymond and Mary Elizabeth (Houghtaling) Terwilliger.

Joan was predeceased by her first husband Myron Avery Sr. in 1994. She was remarried to Robert Allen and nothing meant more to her than being with her family.

She is survived by her daughter Gwen Smith, and by her sons Myron and Mitchell Avery.

Joan was predeceased by her sisters Margaret Weber and Harriet Weber.
