Joan Warren Barrett Byrne, 74, of Manlius and Penn Yan, NY, passed away surrounded by her loving family on December 11, 2019 after a brief illness.

Joan lived a full life, filled with family, friends, travel and adventure. Her favorite activity was to make people laugh and try to lighten their day. She was best known for her boundless energy and infectious smile.

Joan was born in Syracuse on April 13, 1945 to Albert and Julia (Kapuscienski) Warren. She attended Eastwood High School and Syracuse University. Known as the “Carpet Queen”, she was Founder and President of the interior design and home improvement company, The Source, Inc, for 25 years. She later worked in sales for the family business, Our Daily Eats.

Joan was an active member of her community throughout her life, serving as a board member of the Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame, co-founder of the Syracuse University Mentoring Program for the School of Management and Court Observer with the Onondaga County Probation Department. She was a member of the National Association of Women Business Owners, Crouse Irving Auxiliary, Syracuse University School of Management Alumni Association, Syracuse Junior League, Town of Manlius Women’s Committee, Cavalry Club and Willowbank Yacht Club.

She was a committed volunteer and supporter of the DOVES Foundation, Literacy Volunteers of America, Camp Good Days, the American Red Cross and Meals on Wheels.

Joan is survived by her husband, Alan Byrne; three sons, Peter, Paul and Brian; “daughters-in-love”, Ashley and Caroline; and six grandchildren, Mason, Miles, Lucy, Zoe, Elliot and Breck. She is also survived by her two brothers, John and James (and wife Karen) Warren; nieces, Jennifer and Ashley Warren; nephew, Andrew Warren; cousin, Patty Keir; and “miracle” ball of fur, Aggie.

A church service will be held on Saturday, December 21 at 11:30 am at St. Luke’s Church in Branchport, NY on Saturday, December 21 at 11:30 am. Private burial will follow.

To all of Joan's family and my good friend Al. I never had the pleasure of meeting Joan but knew of her through Al. Quite a dynamic woman from what I read. Please accept my condolences. May she now be resting in peace. John Scala

Joan is one of those people that you are forever grateful for having in your life. She never missed an opportunity to care for friends and strangers, and be by your side with listening, understanding, advice, laughter, tears, through thick and thin. I am a better person for having known her, and I hope to leave that legacy when I too am gone.
My children and I join our dear Alan in missing her spark of life.

To Joan’s Family
I was a schoolmate of Joan’s and friend. It was so sad to hear of her illness and now her passing. She will always be remembered for her energy and kindness. A great woman who had a full useful life that others would only wish for. She will be missed.

Joan was so special. She was just a bundle of energy and remained uniquely "life-long curious", seeking out and enjoying new adventures while cherishing the old. We were blessed to know her. Through a crossroads with mutual friends we met Al and Joan, and through them, Jack. They immediately became our "Keuka Kin"!

We will miss her always. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this incredibly difficult time.
