Joan C. LaCount

She is survived by her mom, Beatrice LaValley of Rouses Point; five sisters, Maggie and Jim Page of Plattsburgh, Beverly and Jim Lamberton of Mooers Forks, Ruby and Leon Garrand of Chazy, Marilyn LaCount and her companion, David Gravelin of Mooers Forks and Norma and Larry Begor of Mooers; two brothers, Paul and Nancey LaValley of Mooers Forks, George Burleigh and his companion, Tammy Barcomb; four sons, Jeffery and Roxane Sterling of Rouses Point, Clifford and Joan Sterling of Rouses Point, Scott and Robin Sterling of Sciota, Todd and Stacey Sterling of Rouses Point; 21 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild and her stepdaughter, Tammy Brown of Chazy.
She worked at Imperial Paper Mill for 14 years, Ayerst Labs for 14 years, IMS in Champlain for 12 years and she was the Super Sample Lady at Price Chopper, a job that she loved so much and met so many nice people at. She loved camping, playing penny slots at the casino, but most of all she loved spending time with her grandkids.

Why wasnt John LaCount a part of her obituary? They're still married. Absolutely no respect in the family for him? She loved him on her good days and bad days and he loved her. No denying that. They had a bond that was inseparable. This part of the family sickens me and I'll never get over it. I'm sorry for the loss of Grandma Joan, but I'll be there for my grandfather and make sure he's okay. I wont throw him to side like you all have...take him and for everything he has just to make yourself feel better about the situation she was in....

I'm so sorry for your loss. The love shared between her and her sisters is something I will not forget. I feel blessed to have been part of you're family briefly. She will be looking down over all of you, giving you hell along the way, and keeping you on your toes. Sorry I can not attend. Thank you for letting my mom know, so she could tell me. Hugs to everyone.

I spent an afternoon with Joan helping her go through some of her clothes. She was sitting out side near Cliffs garage. She would tell me what to keep and what to give away. We laughed and had so much fun. She did get a little sunburn and I forgot to feed her lunch. She was happy though. I will miss her.
