Joan Christine Semczak (nee Hurford), a longtime resident of Sterling Heights, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 2, 2019. She was 69 years old.

Joan was born on February 7, 1950 in Detroit, Michigan to Samuel and Alberta (nee Edwards) Hurford. She married the love of her life, Lawrence Semczak, on September 7, 1979 at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Detroit. Joan worked in the restaurant business for her entire life, retiring as a manager in 2009. Outside of her work, she enjoyed gardening and caring of her many indoor plants. Above all, Joan truly loved and cherished her family and friends. Her smile and kindness will truly be missed by all who knew her, but memories of her will continue on in all who loved her.

Joan is survived by her loving husband Larry Semczak; cherished daughter Candace (Wesley) Tench; two brothers, four sisters, and many neices, nephews, cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents and one brother.

A memorial Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 1050 Porter St, Detroit, Michigan 48226 at 11am with a memorial gathering beginning at 10:30am.
