Joann Schiesser

Surrounded by her loved ones, Joann Schiesser of East Greenwich, Rhode Island passed away peacefully on her 65th birthday, September 23, 2022, after a seven-year battle with pancreatic cancer. She was a loving wife, mother, sister and friend. She is survived by her husband of 43 years, August Schiesser and son Christopher Schiesser.
Joann was born and raised in New Rochelle, New York to parents Mario and Raffaella Perri. She graduated from New Rochelle High School and earned her associates degree from Berkeley College in 1986. She was a bookkeeper by trade and worked for John S. Latsis Company in New York City for 30 years.
Joann loved shopping; specifically, she loved buying thoughtful gifts for others which was a testament to her tremendous generosity. She had a heart of gold and lived her life to the fullest. She took great pride in decorating her home, especially for the holidays, and enjoyed traveling with her family and friends (her favorite destination being Aruba).
She was an incredibly loving mother and wife and brought so much light and joy to her family. Everyone who knew Joann loved her and she will be greatly missed by all.
While too numerous to name, the family would like to thank all the dedicated doctors and healthcare providers who helped Joann during her long battle, especially her oncologist Dr. Alexander Raufi.
In leu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to the Lustgarten Foundation in the hopes that one day a cure for pancreatic cancer will be found.
II Corinthians 5:8 gives us the assurance as Believers that when we are “absent from the body, we are present with the Lord.” This is the comfort that we have in the days and months ahead.
Visiting Hours will be Wednesday 4-8pm. A funeral Mass is scheduled for Thursday10:30am at Blessed Sacrament Church. Interment will follow at Greenwood Union Cemetery.
