Theodora Mary ‘Teddy’ Joachimowski, 81

Theodora Mary “Teddy” Joachimowski, 81, of Ocean View, Del., passed away on Dec. 1, 2019, at her residence. She was born in Wilmington, Del., on Aug. 16, 1938, daughter of the late Charles and Mary Kanterowski Janicki.

Joachimowski was a graduate of St. Hedwig Parochial School. For 38 years she worked for Delaware Neurological Associates in Wilmington, retiring in 1994 from work as the office manager.

Joachimowski enjoyed her beach home, where she would marvel at the beauty of nature outside the window, as she enjoyed watching the deer and birds at her birdfeeders. Her neighbors on Yacht Basin Road were especially important to her and brought many hours of enjoyment while entertaining in her home. Going fishing and traveling kept her active, but she cherished the time spent with her grandchildren most of all.

In addition to her parents, Joachimowski was also preceded in death by her husband, Joseph John Joachimowski Sr., in 2013, and her brothers, Matthew and Ronald. She is survived by her sons, Joseph John Joachimowski Jr. and his wife, Paula Louise, of Ocean View, and Theodore Mark Joachimowski and his wife, Sherry Ann, of Newark, Del.; her grandchildren, Tyler Mark and Taylor Marie Joachimowski of Newark; her granddaughter-in-law, Anita Marie Fasick and her spouse, Chris, of Hockessin, Del.; her great-granddaughter, Madison; and her close niece and nephew, Monica Esterling of Bear, Del., and John Joachimowski of Frankford, Del.

Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m., with visitation starting at 10 a.m., on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019, at Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Clarksville Chapel, 34874 Atlantic Avenue, Ocean View, Del.
