Talty, Joan Marie

November 14, 1955 - October 19, 2015

Joan Marie Talty, age 59, of Carrollton, Texas passed away on October 19, 2015 of complications from pneumonia, after a long battle with multiple sclerosis.  A memorial rosary will be held at 10:00 A.M. followed by a funeral Mass at 10:30 A.M., Thursday, October 29, 2015 at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Farmers Branch.

She is survived by her husband, Francis Talty; her children Heather Wood (Talty), Natalie Hiler (Talty), and Tedd Talty; children’s spouses Cameron Wood and Mark Hiler, and 3 grandchildren Hailey and Madeline Hiler, and Michael Wood.

Joan met the love of her life, Fran, in Dallas and they were married in March of 1979 and finally settled in Carrollton. They made a wonderful life raising their 3 children, whom she often praised for their accomplishments.  She was a stay at home mom who had a passion for cooking and enjoyed helping people.  Joan loved cooking for the masses, always resulting in great leftovers at the house.  She was known for her State Fair award winning brownies and her Thanksgiving feasts.  Joan was a great friend to many, who took every opportunity to chat with friends near and far. She will truly be missed by family and friends, who take comfort in knowing she is no longer in any pain and will be reunited with her loved ones once again.

Heather, Natalie and Tedd,
My sincere condolences on the loss of your Mother. I always enjoyed talking with your Mom by phone or Internet. We had a lot of good laughs and I learned what a strong and amazing woman she was. She loved her family above all else. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Marsha Meister says:

Joan was such a bright spirit! In spite of all of her problems with herself and Fran she always seemed to me to be happy. She looked at life as a glass half full! Even when she complained it was always with a wink and a smile. She loved her kids and her granddaughter. It’s so sad that she is gone – I will miss her. I sure wish I had that recipe for her brownies! 🙂

So sorry for your loss. Joan was a very sweet lady and we loved being her neighbor until we moved to Denton.

Carol Rosa says:

Fran, and kids, I am so sorry for your loss, I met Joan in a MS exercise class in Carrollton. We MS’ers used to periodically meet for coffee. I will miss her at MS programs, and her bragging about you 3 and her grandchildren.
I am thankful she was able to meet Michael in person.
She so loved her family ❤️ Carol Rosa

We were so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing and you have our deepest sympathy. Our prayers are with you at this sorrowful time and ask God that your thoughts might dwell on all the wonderful memories you have of times spent together until you can meet again.

Anon says:

My deepest sympathies. I had the pleasure of getting to know Joan through Autumn Leaves this past summer. It was such a blessing to have known her for the time short time I did. I hope that it gives some measure of comfort to know that she was an inspiration to so many people and touched so many lives.

Chuck and Kathy Thomas says:

What a sad loss for her family and for those who knew her. Even through her most recent challenges, Joan never lost her enthusiasm for life, her sense of humor and willingness to help those around her. She was always the best champion for her children and anyone else’s kids, including mine. Her brilliant smile and gregarious laugh will make the world a bit more dim but you know she is lighting up heaven. We will miss you Joan.

Tessa Vasquez says:

Knowing you since I was a kid and getting the chance to get to know you as an adult. I consider myself very lucky to have spent that time with you. You always had the brightest smile and best hugs.

Sarah Buckland says:

Your mother was one of the best people I ever knew, and her loss is also saddest for me. I hope each of you know that you hold a special place in your Mom’s heart and how deeply she loves you and how proud she was of your accomplishments. You three meant the world to her as so did Fran. Her MS seemed to be getting more aggressive and she was having problems with simple things. I remember the day Joan called to let me know that Hailey would be living with her shortly and how excited she was to have her granddaughter living with her.I told her that was a blessing in disguise knowing they would be there to help her when she needed it. In this time of sorrow, I send my heartfelt condolences to your family. I will miss my friend & think of her often and knowing that she is with God will help with her loss ~ Peace be with all of you.

Les Kerr says:

All the best – From the Kerrs

Our neighborhood has not been the same since Joan’s passing…she brought rays of sunshine even on cloudy days…I do not believe I ever saw her without a smile on her face despite her condition with MS along with her partner and best friend who was dealing with Alzheimer’s….she always looked on the bright side of things…the times she would call me up on the phone she would always put me in a good mood with her uplifting spirit…She was such a kind and understanding person who did not judge and who would hold things in confidence. She would bake brownies on my son’s and daughter’s birthday…the best brownies ever! I will forever remember her for her wonderful outlook on life, for her biggest treasure being her wonderful family and just the wonderful friend that she was…Death is only a temporary separation..we all meet again but it is the time in between that makes it so so difficult…Rest in peace Joan and thanks for all that you did for us…Prayers and hugs go out to the family at this very difficult time…Brad, Rhonda and Zach Taylor

Heather, Natalie, and Tedd,
We were so sorry to hear of your loss. Joan was a wonderful, caring friend, neighbor, and mother. I hope you can carry on her Thanksgiving Feast in her honor, and that you will raise a toast, and smile, knowing she is smiling down on you all.

Cindy Hicks says:

It’s been over a year now since you passed Joan. I’ve missed our tslks on the phone – espeecially after losing Steve. You were always there to offer me strength when I felt so sad. We had a special connection from the very start since both of our first born children came into this world on the exact same day & year! I always admired you and to your family just know that your Mom was extraordinary and loved by many. She is missed every day.
