Joan M. Greenberg

1949 - 2020


Joan M. Greenberg, a longtime resident of Malden, passed away on Saturday, Oct 3rd, in Boston after a brief illness.  Joan was born in  Cambridge in 1949, the daughter  of Donald and Eleanor Davis.  She was raised in Cambridge, and graduated from Cambridge High and Latin with the Class of 1968.   She was active and athletic while at school, and was part of the high school’s championship basketball team.  She also continued to play tennis and handball for many years.   She was very committed to her job as a Para-professional for the City of Malden’s school department, working with special needs children at the Linden and Beebe Schools, and her loving devotion to and affection for the children with whom she worked made a big difference in many of their lives. She also dedicated her time after school to working with children at the YMCA.

In 1991, Joan married her sweetheart, Chester A. Greenberg, and the two settled down in Malden together raising their family.  They shared nearly 30 years of marriage together until Chester’s passing last year.   Joan enjoyed going to the beach, and was a wonderful cook.  She enjoyed taking care of others, and kept a welcome, open home where family and friends were always welcome.

She was a devoted mother of Patrick Greenberg of Whitinsville, and step-mother of Christopher Greenberg of Dorchester and Marie Greenberg of E. Boston.,    Cherished sister of Sandra Chase of Billerica, Thomas Davis of Billerica, Ellen Desrosiers of WA, Wayne Davis of Grafton, Nancy Davis-Nicosia of Boston.

Joan was preceded in death by her husband Chester, and her brother, Stephen Davis.
