Obituary for Betty Joanne Studer

Joanne Studer, 86-years-old and a long-time resident of Vienna, VA died Monday the 1st of January 2018 at the Haymarket Medical Center. Joanne was the loving mother of Tina Tisinger and Tony (JoAnne) Studer; sister of Jack Wright; cherished grandmother of Daniel (Sarah) Tisinger and Diana (Shawn) Kolodgie. She is also survived by her great-grandchildren, Grace, Kaytlin and Addison Tisinger, and Charlotte Kolodgie.



Joanne was born in Washington, D.C. to Audrey and Irvin Wright, grew up in Arlington, VA and graduated from Washington & Lee High School where she attended many of her high school reunions. She raised her family in Falls Church, VA before moving to the Stonewall Manor community in Vienna, where she resided for nearly 50 years. She also lived in London England and Wiesbaden Germany, and traveled extensively throughout Europe.



Joanne was a mother and homemaker and was devoted to helping others. Joanne received multiple community service awards for her years of contributions, to include Meals on Wheels and platelet donations. Joanne had an entertaining sense of humor and loved making people laugh. She attended a program to become a professional clown and was named “Tooter.” As a clown she marched in parades, volunteered her time at local hospitals visiting the children's wards and emergency rooms, and participated in the Christmas Fantasy Flights at Dulles Airport for disabled children. She bowled on a neighborhood league for decades, served her Church through the Ladies Auxiliary, and was an enthusiastic member of both Totally Eccentric Adventurous Red Hatters and Clowning Around.



Joanne loved socializing, and was known for her whit and ease in frequent conversation with even total strangers. Joanne’s greatest joy came from being with her family. She displayed a flag on her home to show her enthusiasm for every holiday and Redskins game. She was very proud of her family and was their number one fan at all of their sporting events, with a cowbell in one hand and kazoo in the other. She was always ready for a family road trip or Red Hatter adventure. She also enjoyed spending time at the beach and going on annual cruises to the Caribbean.
