Joan Pamella Rudolfo was born November 10,1948 to Elechia Thomas and Heywood Thomas in the small town of Colonarie, St.Vincent. At the age of ten Joan migrated to Trinidad & Tobago where she lived a challenging life helping to support her mother as her only living child. Joan was born with a heart.

January 19th, 1974 at the age of twenty-five, Joan married Frank Rudolfo (deceased). February 1978 they were gifted with their only child Janine Rudolfo known to many as Franka. Not only was Joan always there for others she had a passion for helping others succeed. In 1980 she open her own advertising agency called F.J.R. Advertising. By 1984 Joan had published the first caribbean love magazine called Ours. Joan was known throughout Trinidad for her Beach Lime event and her support of the Joy Reid Operation Fundraiser to help pay for an operation to help her walk.

Joan has been a God fearing woman her entire life. November 1984 Joan stepped on faith and migrated to America with her only child and very few belongings. She continued to do her heart’s calling by becoming a Home Health Aide for almost 30yrs. In those thirty years she was able to work hard, save and build a foundation not only for her child and grandchildren but for many others.

Joan was always a visionary. She loved to create and think of things to make life simpler. Even up until her sickness she had patent a creation for a device that she hoped would one day help someone. Joan also loved to travel, have visited China to walk the Great Wall to the strip in Las Vegas. Joan is best described as vibrant with an infectious smile and laugh.On the night of November 30, 2019 surrounded by her loved ones, Joan Pamella Rudolfo peacefully entered eternal rest. She will be greatly missed and remembered as a loving daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great friend.

Joan was predeceased by her husband Frank Rudolfo; Beloved siblings Grace (sister) and Terry (brother). Those left to mourn and cherish her loving memories include her father Heywood Thomas; her only child Janine aka Franka; grand children- Chanice, Syianne, David, Adar; Great-Granddaughter Amira; Siblings- Ken, Janet, Ashley, Hyacinth, Mary, Sylvia, Charlene, Cassandra, Shelia, Colin and Angus; nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, other relatives and friends, too many to identify along with the Omega Fire Ministry and Fountain of Grace Church Families.
