About Joan Quiggin Locklin

(obt) Joan Quiggin Locklin passed away in her sleep in New Haven, CT, on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, at the age of 83. Joan's husband, David Hartt Locklin, passed away on August 22, 2012. They had been married 57 years. Joan was born to the late Paul and Dorothy Davis, of Medina, Ohio. She is survived by her daughter, Sue Locklin Wais, two grandchildren, Ashleigh and Jennifer, of New York City; and two brothers, Richard Davis, of Arizona, and Timothy Davis, of Texas. Joan graduated from Allegheny College, in Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Education. She went on to teach in high school and then dedicated the next 20 years of her life as an Adult Education Instructor in the City of New Haven. She received the Crystal Apple Award, as Connecticut's Outstanding Teacher in 1985, after recovering from a fall earlier that same year in which she sustained a serious spinal cord injury which left her paralyzed below her shoulders for the rest of her life. Nevertheless, Joan continued to teach part-time and tutored individual students. Her kind spirit, warmth, positive energy, and zest for life served as an inspiration to her family, friends, colleagues, and students. Joan loved to read novels, watch movies, surf the web, correspond with family and friends, and follow the UConn Huskies Woman's Basketball Team. But her greatest love was for her husband, daughter, grand-daughters, and brothers. All services are private. -slw
