Joan Zimmerman Andruchuk

Joan Zimmerman Andruchuk, 84, of Hudson, NH, died peacefully on Friday, April 12, 2019 at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack while surrounded by her loving family.

She was born March 4, 1935 in Stoneham, MA, daughter of the late Norval and Elsie (Crist) Kraft. Joan was predeceased by her husband, Paul E. Zimmerman, Jr., as well as by her second husband, John Andruchuk. She was also predeceased by two sisters, Mary Keefe and Judith Zimmerman and a brother, Robert Kraft.

Joan was a gifted artist who loved to paint and work ceramics. For over 40 years, she crafted numerous hand made gifts for family and friends all bearing her signature Joan style. Christmas was a wonderland for her. She decorated her home from top to bottom and the joy that it brought her guests warmed her heart. Joan loved being a mom and her greatest joy came when spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Joan’s loving family includes three sons and a daughter; Robert P. Zimmerman and his wife Sarah of Nashua, Paul E. Zimmerman III and his fiancé Melba Read of Gilford, NH, Cris Zimmerman and his wife Jodi of Woodbury, MN, Judy Zimmerman Feldman and her husband William Feldman of Taunton, MA, four grandchildren, Krista Zimmerman, Dean Zimmerman, Jake Zimmerman, Abby Zimmerman and a great grandson Jacob Zimmerman.
