Joanne worked as a Claims Representative at Liberty Mutual Insurance Company for over 30 years. She worked for many years in the Boston location, before relocating to the Danvers Office. Joanne was a devoted mother to her son David, and she worked hard to provide him everything he needed as a child. Joanne was blessed to be a grandmother and enjoyed watching her grandchildren grow into fine adults. She was a homebody who loved to do puzzles and, of course, cook. She was known for her many delicious meals that she would make for her family to enjoy. She was also a woman of great faith, and she loved her church, St. Anthony of Padua in Revere. In 1998, she relocated to Peabody with her son David and his family. Being together with her family is what mattered most to Joanne.

She is the loving & devoted mother of David Ferragamo, Sr. & his companion Cheryl Anderson of Peabody. Cherished & proud grandmother of David Ferragamo, Jr. & Ashley M. Ferragamo, both of Peabody. Beloved former mother-in-law & “Surrogate Mother” to Tracy J. Ferragamo of Haverhill. Dear sister of Lillian Gonzalez of North Reading & the late Ralph J.

    JoJo, I don’t know what to say, my heart is broken, we were such good friends. Now, you are gone, so hard to believe I was talking to you a few days before you passed. I keep thinking of our time in Malden @ Liberty, God we had so much fun, you were so kind to me when I first came back to work and I knew no one. As time went on, I found you were kind, compassionate and caring, and we soon became good friends, you called me Mackie, and then, everyone did too, which I loved. I will miss you my dear friend and will never forget you. Be happy with your loved ones and pets who has passed. Love Mackie
