JOAN A. SATAVA
Joan A. Satava (nee Myers) passed into eternal rest on September 13, 2019 after a brief illness. She was a long-time resident of Chagrin Falls, OH. Born January 16, 1930 to Harrison and Edith Myers in Grand Rapids, Michigan, she was predeceased by her parents and sisters, Kathleen Burrell (Bill) and Nancy Myers (Zen). She is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Donald; three children, Stephen (Frances) of Yorktown, VA; James (Katie) of Ringoes, NJ; and Karen (John) of Cuyahoga Falls OH; four grandchildren, Stephen II (Lauren), Joseph (Kelly), Jason (Emma) and Angela (Nicholas); and two great-grandchildren, Jude and Eleanor.
Joan was a 1947 graduate of Chagrin Falls High School and a 1951 graduate of Notre Dame College of Ohio. She loved being a teacher and began her teaching career in the Chagrin Falls School System, stopped teaching to be a full-time mother to her children, and then taught 5th grade at St Joan of Arc Catholic School for 25 years. Joan had many wonderful stories about the teachers and her students at St Joan’s. She could always be found after the school day in her classroom, working on her lessons for the next day and listening to music turned up LOUD and echoing through the halls.
Joan and Don were long-time members of the Pymatuning Century Club and spent many enjoyable hours sailing their Flying Scot sailboat on Pymatuning Lake. She and her sisters were always singing, and Joan was in the choir at St Joan’s for many years. A highlight was when the choir recorded a CD and traveled to Italy to sing for the Pope. When Joan was younger she traveled all over the eastern US and Canada on road trips with her mother and sister, Nancy. She loved to drive and had a taste for fast cars. She owned Mustangs, Firebirds and a Z28 Camaro over the years.
The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the staff at Holly Hill Healthcare Residence for their kind and compassionate care of Joan in her final years. We would also like to thank Hospice of the Western Reserve for their excellent care as well.
