North Andover - JoAnn Piantidosi (Wilson), 64, of North Andover passed away peacefully surrounded by all of her family and friends at her home on November 15, 2019, after a three-year battle with cancer. She was born on October 30, 1955, in Fitchburg, Mass. She graduated from Andover High School and started a family very soon after with her late husband Peter. JoAnn was a homemaker, a loving mother of four children and helped run the family insurance business for many years. After her husband's death in 1996 she eventually settled into retail where she held customer service management positions at both BJs Wholesale Club and Hannaford Brother's Supermarkets, right up into retirement. JoAnn loved people, enjoyed helping solve problems and spent most of her professional career doing just that.
JoAnn's family was the center of her universe. She spent many years on the sidelines watching her children compete in sports at all ages and adored being a second mom to countless kids in town. Mrs. P, as she was known, made her home open to anyone and everyone. She always had a smile on her face and would support anyone in need at a moment's notice.
JoAnn loved to tell stories of her family's Greek heritage and the good old days on Primrose Street in Dracut. She loved taking rides to the beach, holidays with family were her favorite, and she was a student of any good political discussion.
Preceded in death by her loving husband Peter Jr., JoAnn is survived by her children, Peter III (PJ), Mark and his girlfriend Brittany Roberts, Jeffrey and his wife Christina (Romeo), Leah and her boyfriend Hitesh Punjabi. She was a loving grandmother to Ava, Norah, Matthew, Jacob and Juliana. Cherished sister to Barbara Gurecki and husband Robert, and Donna Anzuoni. She will always remember those gone too soon; brothers Ralph Wilson & Lawrence Anzuoni, Sister Lynn Kelly and one of her favorite great nephews Matthew Murphy.
JoAnn's family would like to thank the staff at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for the wonderful care that she received there, especially Dr. Jeffrey Wisch, Kathleen Boyle PA, and Dr. Leah Biller.

Family and friends are invited to call on Wednesday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Conte Funeral Home, 17 Third Street, North Andover MA 01845. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday at St. Michael Parish in North Andover, Mass. Burial will follow in Ridgewood Cemetery, North Andover.
