Joann on Sunday February 3, 2019 has gone to be with the love of her life and best friend (Leonard B. Sobolewski, Sr.) who preceded her in death January 20, 2011, after 48 years of marriage. She is now with her husband whom she has missed deeply.
She was born in Erie on January 19, 1947, daughter of the late George J. Roman and Theresa M. (Konecki) Roman.
Joann retired from the Plastek Group after 34 years of service in 2010.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Roman and sister, Mary Lou Crawford and several in-laws and many pets.

Quinn, Jr., whom she adored. She is also survived by several in-laws, step grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and her dog (Misty Rose) and cat (Emma Lou).
Joann was the most tireless, hardworking and selfless person you can imagine. Whether you knew her or not her kindness and work ethic radiated throughout the world. Her legacy will be carried on.
Joann enjoyed being with her family and pets. She also enjoyed fishing with her late husband (Len). She was an avid sports fan of football and soccer (mainly the Steelers and Ronaldo). She also had a soft spot for Mark Harmon (NCIS) and animal causes (ASPCA).
