Joy Tiede

Obituary of Joy Tiede

 After a long and valiant response to a debilitating illness, Joy passed away, gracefully, on August 26, 2020.  Joy was predeceased by her parents, Mary Cafone Landi (Hector) and Felix Mannocchi, along with her granddaughter, Carli D’Amore.  Joy is survived by her loving and supportive husband, Karl R. Tiede, to whom she was married for 44 years; her sister, Phyllis F. Mannocchi; sons Frank (Yvonne), Keith (Rita), and Glenn D’Amore (Christine), and grandchildren, Kyle D’Amore, Emily D’Amore Bettis (Parker), and Nicholas D’Amore.

Joy hailed from Roxborough, initially raised her three boys in Roslyn, with the family eventually moving to Lafayette Hill upon her marriage to Karl.  Joy and Karl forever cherished their 5 years as residents of Kannapali, Maui, and their long-time status as residents of Skippack. 

Joy’s life was characterized by her immeasurable work ethic, compassion, involvement in the community, love of her family, and her enviable culinary skills.  Joy’s professional career in Marketing was highlighted by her 40+ year contributions to the Prudential Insurance Company, where she led numerous teams in its AARP and Finance groups.  Joy relished her tenure with the Kapalua Bay Marketing Company, where she was an integral member of the team that staged the organization’s annual PGA Tour event. 

Joy gave freely of her time, which included a much-cherished stint as the head of the Roslyn Athletic Association’s Cheerleader Program and her support of women in crisis, during her time as a volunteer for the former Norristown-based, Women Against Rape, organization. 

Joy loved to read and was a life-long learner.  She attended Chestnut Hill College for many years and reveled in following, and debating, current events, including politics.  She was a mainstay in local political activities, including serving as a  Committee Woman for one of the principal political parties during her 15 years in Roslyn.

In light of COVID, a public service will be deferred until a later date.  In lieu of flowers, the family recommends making a donation to the Lewy Body Dementia Association, by clicking HERE.
