Joan Margaret (Cox) Cronin, 67, originally from Binghamton, NY, passed away peacefully February 4, 2021 at Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, NY. She was a devoted mother and sister and dearly loved her family. She was predeceased by her parents, John Francis Cox, Jr. and Mary (Blasko) Cox. She is survived by her son, Sergeant First Class Sean Cronin, her sisters, Catherine (Cox) Gerweck and Mary Frances Cox, brothers-in-law Jim Gerweck and Howard Sall, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews, and her longtime companion, Richard Motiska. Joan graduated from Binghamton Central High School in 1970. She went on to attend college at SUNY Brockport where she studied nutrition and dietetics and became a registered dietician. Joan had an indomitable spirit and always believed that better days were ahead. She was dedicated to those she loved but especially so to her beloved son, Sean. Those who knew her, knew of her pride in Sean. Joan always wanted to share the latest on Sean's life and his accomplishments. He was her joy. Joan's laughter and sense of humor could never be dimmed, she lived to make others happy and gave of herself all that she could to family, friends and strangers alike. Against insurmountable odds, Joan fought to the end. She can now rest, relax and be at peace. She will be greatly missed.
