Joanne Ravida

Jan 10th 1967 — Jan 18th 2024 (57 years)


It is with great sadness and much love that we mourn the passing of Joanne Leslie Babcock Ravida, on January 18, 2024.

Joanne was a beacon of joy and kindness, that was unmatched. Whether you knew Joanne for five minutes or five years she always greeted you with a smile and an open heart.

Joanne lived a life marked by love, kindness, strength and resiliency. She was a beloved mother to two children, Anthony and Matthew; sister to Jennifer Babcock-Hannas; mother in-law to Sarah. Daughter to Patricia and Philip Van boom; Paul Babcock. Joanne’s family and friends were her pride and joy, and she devoted her life to supporting them in every way she could. She was a second mom to many of her son’s friends.

Joanne’s laughter was infectious. Her presence brought comfort and happiness to those around her, making every moment a little brighter. When Joanne walked into a room, her charisma would light up the mood even on the dimmest of days.

She had a unique way of making everyone feel loved and important, a testament to her generous spirit.

As we celebrate her remarkable life, we are reminded by the amazing lives that she impacted. Her spirit will live on through everyone she touched. We all will do a little better in this world because of the times we had with Joanne.

Her legacy will live on in the hearts of those who knew her and in the countless lives she impacted with her presence and love.
