Joan Anderson Fleming, 89, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at McLean in Simsbury, CT. She was married to the late David W. Fleming for 65 years. Joan was born January 12, 1931 in New Haven, CT, daughter of the late Ernest Algot and Lilly Maria (Emanuelson) Anderson and had lived in Mt. Clemens, MI prior to moving to Simsbury 3 ½ years ago. She was a graduate of Larson College in New Haven, now part of Quinnipiac University, and worked as a medical secretary for doctors in CT, CO, and MI. Joan was an active member of First Presbyterian Church in Mt. Clemens, MI for over 50 years serving in numerous capacities. She volunteered outside of church as well, driving cancer patients to Detroit for treatments and working at the art center in Mt. Clemens. She played bridge and golf and enjoyed knitting, sewing, and quilting. After attending Simsbury United Methodist for over 2 years, she was very pleased to become a member together with her daughter and son-in-law in December of 2019.

She is survived by her son, Mark Fleming and wife Annie Goldman of Commerce Township, MI; her daughter, Susan Thomson and husband John of Avon, CT; her grandchildren, Nicole Simmons, David Thomson, Graham Thomson, and Craig Fleming; her great grandchildren, Ryder and Rayna Simmons, and several nieces and nephews.

Joan’s family wishes to extend special thanks to the kind and compassionate staff at McLean and McLean Home Care & Hospice for their caring support of Joan and the whole family.

A celebration of life will be held at Simsbury United Methodist Church on October 17th at 1pm. Joan’s ashes will join her husband’s in the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI at a later date.

Dear Mark, Susan and family. So sorry for your loss. Although I know that Aunt Joan is at peace, I know you’ll miss her. I enjoyed the time she and I had together when she and Dave were in Florida. She and Uncle Dave hosted me when I was doing an art show in Tampa. It was great to come home to a glass of wine and a simple meal at the end of the day. She let me help her decorate her Christmas tree and we went for walks together as well. She was a gentle soul.
