Joanne was a voracious reader who would read more than one book a week. She loved sitting in the sun on
her front porch, with a glass of white wine, and vacationing at Wrightsville Beach, N.C., where she could
relax under an umbrella and enjoy the sight and sounds of the ocean.
Joanne was very proud of her sons and eagerly looked forward to becoming a "Grammie."
Joanne was the beloved wife of 35 years of Joe Garifo; cherished daughter of the late John and Anne Marie
Diveny; devoted mother of Matthew and his wife, Erin, Kevin, and the late Anthony "AJ"; loving sister of Br.
Paul Diveny, O.S.B., Mary Diveny Loftus and her late husband, Patrick, Theresa Dempsey and her
husband, Ray, and Carol Crate and her husband, Robert. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews,
aunts, uncles and cousins.
