In memory of
Joan Horowitz Sherman
Joan Horowitz Sherman, 94, of Kenner, passed away on Saturday, July 25, 2020. Born in 1926 in the Bronx, New York, Joan graduated from Hunter College before moving to New Orleans with her best friend and beloved husband, Stanley Sherman. In New Orleans, Joan raised their 4 children while working tirelessly as the Office Manager at her husband's medical practice. Joan was a keen businesswoman who "never knew a stranger." She was a fierce defender of civil rights and believed that "actions are stronger than words." However, her greatest accomplishment was the legacy she leaves behind in her 4 children, 11 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren. Joan is survived by her children: David (Jane) Sherman, Richard (Lisa) Sherman, Peter Sherman, and Ruth (Jon) Gottlieb. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren: Philip (Heather), Matthew (Emily), Amelia, Steven, Benjamin (Lauren), Alan (Rachel), Alex, and Jeslyn Sherman as well as Courtney (Casey) Lane, and Jacob and Dannah Gottlieb. Joan taught each child and grandchild that a good education and strong work ethic are the keys to a long and fulfilling life journey. A private service was held for the family.
