Ted and Joanne Lindsay worked together to raise funds for autism research.
While her husband Ted is known as a winner and a driving force in professional hockey that placed him in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Joanne Lindsay didn't take a back seat to Ted with her business acumen and could match him pound for pound in community service work.
In fact, after they met and married 28 years ago, together they worked very hard to raise and dispense funds to new and existing research and educational programs focusing on the cause and management of autism by creating the Ted Lindsay Foundation.
“I’ve been the most fortunate of men, to have married Jo,” Lindsay, 91, told Hockey Weekly Feb. 26, three days after Joanne died Feb. 23, in Oakland Township from a battle with peritoneal cancer. Joanne Lindsay was 81.
Ted also mentioned their great years together and that he would always have those memories of their marriage and working in raising funds for autism.
Joanne was born on April 14, 1935 in Detroit to Ann and Vern Scarsella. Joanne attended Denby High School in Detroit, and graduated class of 1953. Joanne worked in office administration, helped build Green Meadow Farms Equestrian Center, owned Jo's Body Shoppe in Oxford, Michigan where she was a leader as President and an active member of the Oxford Women's Club.
Joanne will be remembered as a hard working and generous community leader and was noted for her talents of cooking, entertaining and supporting friends and family.
In 1989, Joanne married Ted, the love of her life.
They met when she worked at the Pike Street Restaurant as a hostess.
Besides Ted Joanne is also survived by her daughter Lesli; two granddaughters Alyssa (Josh) and Celeste; one great granddaughter Cassie; her sisters Shirley (Gary) and Rosemary (Dean); her brother Dick (Barbara) and several nieces and nephews. In joining Ted's family, Joanne gained daughters Lynn (Lew) and Meredith; son Blake; granddaughters Lindsay and Candice; grandsons Justin (Lisa) and Matt; and great grandchildren Luca and Norah.
A funeral mass was said Monday, Feb. 27, at St. Andrew Catholic Church in Rochester.
