Joan E. (Toomey) Dupuis, 84, formerly of Somerset and Peabody, passed away in Lowell on Saturday, August 11, 2018. She was the widow of Donald V. Dupuis.

Born in Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late George Toomey and the late Laura (Gerhardt) Toomey. Joan was raised by Patrick and Elizabeth Ann (Monroe) Haggerty.

Joan will be best remembered for her time raising her family and working in Peabody, MA. As well as being a homemaker, she took on several jobs including house cleaning, bookkeeping for Arklein Insurance Agency, and time as an exercise instructor at Gloria Stevens.
