Joann Halstead, 82; of Fulton, NY passed away at Crouse Hospital after a long illness.

Joann was born in Fulton, NY to the late Peter and Jennie (Ristagno) Papaleo. She remained a lifetime resident of Fulton, NY.

Joann retired from Family Chiropractic, Fulton after 23 years as Chiropractic Assistant. Prior to her retirement Joann had been employed with Northern Ready Mix, Volney for 16 years.

It was also a little-known fact that her favorite room in her home was her kitchen and that no one was going to be alone on a holiday--not on her watch.
