Joanne Lysbeth Coyle, 83, died on Wednesday, January 31, 2018, at Alamance Regional Medical Center in Burlington. She was born May 1, 1934 in Orange, NJ to Marcella Jean Daly Ward and Joseph Thomas Ward. She grew up in New Jersey and was a graduate of Saint Vincent Academy and of St. Michael’s School of Nursing, both in Newark, NJ.
Joanne worked as a geriatric nurse for 37 years, first at East Orange Nursing Home in New Jersey and later at Pennybyrn at Maryfield in High Point, NC. She lived many years with her family in West Caldwell, NJ, where she raised six children and attended Saint Aloysius Catholic Church. In 1990 she moved to Greensboro, NC, where she attended St. Pius X Catholic Church in Greensboro and Christ the King Catholic Church in High Point. In 2004 Joanne fulfilled her dream of moving to the beach when she built her house on Oak Island, where she lived for 13 years. While on Oak Island she attended St Brendan’s Catholic Church in Shallotte and later Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Southport. Recently Joanne had moved to Burlington to be close to family.
As a nurse, Joanne will be remembered for her kindness and compassion, as well as her humor and her patience. Friends and family will remember her sense of humor, the mischievous twinkle in her eye, and her generosity of spirit.
While living in Greensboro, Joanne volunteered as a peer counselor at the Women’s Resource Center, where she took pride in helping other women find resources to cope with challenging situations. She also volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and with the Lower Cape Fear Hospice.
Joanne loved travel and adventure, and she was always up for a laugh. Her openness to new things and ideas was inspiring to those around her. She loved eating good food, drinking a good cup of tea, and watching the movie “Elf” at Christmastime with her family.
Joanne was predeceased by her former husband, John Coyle and her sister, Marcia Morris. She is survived by her six children, Kathleen Coyle Graves (LeAnna Graves), Virginia Coyle, James Coyle (Donna Coyle), Michael Coyle, Timothy Coyle, Erin Coyle (Grace Camblos); her grandchildren, Ryan Coyle and Megan Coyle (Chris Montaigne); and her great-grandson, Mason Montaigne.
A Mass of Christian burial will be offered 1:30 PM Friday from Immaculate Conception Church, Durham. Friends may visit in church one hour prior. Private cremation will follow the funeral.
The family requests donations to one of Joanne’s favorite charities, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (stjude.org) or Catholic Relief Services (crs.org).

The Coyles are a unique and wonderful family; anyone who befriended one knew they’d been graced with the luck o’ the Irish. This makes it all the harder to lose those friendships. May you all take comfort in the knowledge that Joanne lived life fully, and lives on in her vivacious kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.

I met Joanne when Erin and my daughter Allison were in pre School at Caldwell College in NJ. The girls became best friends right away. As the years passed we kept in touch. Joanne was such a easy going woman and a true delight to know. I miss her.
