Mrs. Joan Ann Spegele, age 84, of Powder Springs, GA., passed away on Thursday, March 30, 2017. Mrs. Spegele was born on June 27, 1932 in Queens, New York, a daughter of the late John Gasperin and Elizabeth Schliph Gasperin.
Joan spent most of her adult life in Long Island. She married the love of her life, Charles George Spegele, to whom she was married for over fifty four years. Joan enjoyed the history and lifestyle of the 1800's; she even worked for the Old Bethpage Restoration Village where she would dress and act the part of a lady from the 1800's. She loved collecting antiques, especially antique dolls. In her spare time she enjoyed crocheting, needle point, and knitting. Joan was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother; she will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Along with her parents, Joan is preceded in death by her husband, Charles Spegele.

Nieland, husband David, of Marietta, GA, and Amy Baur, fiancé Chuck Dennis, of Smithtown, NY; one sister, Patricia Marine of Howard Beach, NY; six grandchildren, Nadine Wall, Maxwell Lewin, Amber Y.
