Joanne was preceded in death by her parents, James George and Madeliene Legault Poulos, as well as her sister, Janet Poulos Metzger.
Born in Schenectday, NY. On July 19, 1954 Joanne also lived in New Jersey, Alabama, and Key Biscayne, FL. Upon her divorce with two young daughters, she went back to school with the help of family and friends, attending Mercy Hospital School of Nursing and Miami Dade Community College. She worked as a Registered Nurse for 37 years, raising her girls as a single parent. She returned to her parent's home in South Glens Falls in the early 1990's, finding community in Schroon Lake where her daughters attended Mountainside Christian Academy. It was there at Mountainside Bible Church that she met her future husband, the Reverend Douglas Mieras. She described their Dec. 9, 2008 wedding as the happiest day of her life, as she married a Godly man and the love of her life. Soon thereafter, Joanne was diagnosed with cancer, which she battled bravely until the end. Doug was by her side throughout, singing hymns to her as she endured surgeries and chemotherapy.
Joanne's life was marked by her unwavering faith in Jesus Christ, with whom she is now rejoicing, freed from the power of sin and death and healed by His stripes.
Her desire was for all to know her favorite passage of scripture, John 3:16-17, which says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him."
Family and friends may call from 3 to 4 PM, Saturday July 16, 2016, at Mountainside Bible Chapel, South Schroon, NY. Funeral Services will follow at 4 PM. on Saturday. Interment will follow at the Severance Cemetery, Schroon NY.
The family suggests memorials take the form of donations to the Westport Bible Chapel, Westport, NY.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Edward L. Kelly Funeral Home Schroon Lake.
