COHEN, Joy D., age 82, of Hamilton, recently passed away of natural causes. Joy was the daughter of immigrants, Mary and Jake, whose families fled Poland at the turn of the last century. Born and raised in New York City, she summered in Cynthiana, Ky. with close relatives. After graduating from Bryant College, Joy married Daniel Cohen, who proceded her in death. She lived in Hamilton for 60 years loving and supporting her husband of 49 years. She raised three sons, Jack, Doug and Harvey and devoted much of her time, energy and resources to all three becoming lawyers interested in the world. Joy highly prized education, patronized the arts and had a passion for learning and volunteerism. She taught high school, read and gardened avidly, served on the Board of the Lane Library and actively participated in synagogue life. Joy was also a devoted mother-in-law to Laura, Stacey and Jane and grandmother to Andy, Cassie, Claire, Alina, Dena, Ari and Trevor. She was a supportive and close friend to many. In lieu of flowers, please direct donations to Beth Israel Synagogue, Hamilton, Ohio. Funeral service will be 9:00 am Sunday at the Colligan Funeral Home.
