Joan Walsh (nee Kinsella), age 92, of West Grove, PA, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at Jenner's Pond Retirement Community.  She was the beloved wife of Thomas A. Walsh, with whom she shared 64 years of marriage.  Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Winifred Kinsella and the sister of the late Michael D. Kinsella.

Joan and Tom lived in Glenolden, PA for over 56 years before moving to Chester County to be near their family.  Joan was an active member of St. Gabriel's Catholic Church in Norwood, PA and more recently, at Assumption BVM Catholic Church in West Grove, PA.

Joan will be remembered by all who knew her as a loving and caring wife, mother, and grandmother who always enjoyed spending time with her family.  She will also be remembered as a devoted friend and for her kindness, sense of humor and positive outlook on life.  Joan loved to travel, play bridge, spend time at the shore, volunteer within the community, and enjoy a good happy hour at sunset with family and friends.
