Joan Hanlin Ritter of Boston Avenue, Seneca Falls, NY died on March 10, 2020.

Joan was born June 6, 1928, daughter of John (Jack) and Lena (Calahan) Hanlin. She was a lifelong resident of Seneca Falls and a 1946 graduate of Mynderse Academy. She retired as a real estate agent in 1987. Earlier in her life, she was a telephone operator with the New York Telephone Co.

Surviving are her husband Hubert L. Ritter whom she married on June 30, 1948, four daughters, Donna (Michael) Mazzocco of Cortlandt Manor, NY, Linda (Michael Miklochik) Ritter of Vail, AZ, Susan Ritter of Ithaca, NY and Amy Ritter of Montour Falls, NY; two granddaughters, Kristina Mazzocco of New York City and Melissa Mazzocco of Bellevue, WA; sister-in-law Barbara Hanlin and several nieces and nephews. Joan was predeceased by her brothers Robert Hanlin and John (Jack) Hanlin and Jack’s wife Jane.

Joan will be greatly missed by all who knew her. A rock in our family, Joan was warm, fun loving, and loved a good laugh. She enjoyed spending summers with her family at the cottage on Cayuga Lake.
