February 10, 1932 ~ November 13, 2019

Born in: Colorado Springs, Colorado
Resided in: Denver, Colorado

Joan (Joanie) passed away in her sleep on November 13, 2019.

Joanie had a rough life, living through the attack on Pearl Harbor as a child, then being orphaned at approximately 11 years old. Joanie met and married Vince, the love of her life, when she was barely 16 years old. Joanie and Vince enjoyed a loving bond and connection until Vince’s death in 1995.

Joanie loved to gamble in Blackhawk, and she truly had gypsy-like powers emanating from her Hungarian/Austrian heritage. Good luck pulling the one-armed bandits in heaven Mom…we know you have hit the jackpot in the hereafter.

Survived by: Vince (Joan) Nicoletti; Rick (Melissa) Nicoletti; Beatrice (Jon Woodhead) Nicoletti, Grandchildren; Michael, Whitney, Andrew, Dominic, Marco, Luca, Savanna, and Celeste as well as 4 Great grandchildren.
