Obituary: Joanne Locke

Joanne Bosilevas Locke, 70, passed away at Greenwich Hospital on September 11th after a one-month battle with Stage Four cancer.

Born and raised in Greenwich, she attended K-6 at a school in central Greenwich run by the Lutheran Church, Central Junior High School, and graduated from Greenwich High School in 1970. Joanne went on to earn a four-year degree in Marketing from Fairfield University.

Shortly after graduating from college, she met her future husband, Doug Locke, an airline pilot. They lived in Cape Cod and later Las Vegas until ten years ago when they returned to Greenwich to assist her ailing mother. Joanne and Doug would have celebrated their 46th wedding anniversary this year.

A lifelong devout Catholic, Joanne was involved with many charitable endeavors with the church, but she was proudest of her efforts to assist the priests with their Prison Ministry in Las Vegas.

Joanne will be sorely missed by her husband, her two cousins, and her many close friends here in Greenwich and throughout the country.

A Funeral Mass to celebrate her life will be held at St. Mary’s Church on Greenwich Avenue on Thursday, September 15 at 10:00 am, followed by interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery.
