Joan Kathleen (Killian) Donovan

April 20, 2018

On April 20th, at the age of 84, Joan was reunited with her husband, Tom and oldest son, Kevin.  She peacefully passed surrounded by her family.


Loving mother to the late Kevin, Mike (Monica), Pat (Anne Killea), John (RoseAnn), Tom, Joe and Mary (Pete McGee). Proud Grandma of Tommy, Gregory (Megan), Jessica, Jeffrey, Dan (Jenn), Megan, Cecily, Jack, Donovan and Laila. Aunt to Keith Donovan and sister to Barbara, Karen and the late Patrick Killian. 


Joan enjoyed the simple things in life: family dinners, crossword puzzles and Whiskey Manhattans. 


She loved cheering on her grandkids at their sporting events. She was her happiest fishing Up North with her family and she will be deeply missed. 


The family would like to thank the staff at Zilber Hospice in Wauwatosa for their care and compassion. 


Private services will be held.
