Obituary of Joan Marie Gerardo

Gerardo, Joan Marie, 64, of St Petersburg, died at 10:27 AM on Friday, August 31, 2018, at home, after a long, courageous battle with cancer. A native of St. Petersburg, she graduated from St. Pete High and St. Petersburg College, working as a dental hygienist for more than 40 years. She was preceded in death by her parents, MaryJane and Charles Robert “Bob” Johnson.

James Johnson, Carolyn Johnson & Michael Johnson. A devoted wife and mother, Joan exhibited loving kindness, tender compassion, wisdom and understanding.
