Obituary for Joseph Priano

Joseph Priano, age 95, a resident of Carillon in Plainfield, IL, formerly of Woodridge and Darien, IL, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at the Springs of Monarch of Naperville. He was born August 18, 1924 in Chicago, IL.

Cherished husband of the late Evelyn Priano, nee Leavitt, wedded on February 18, 1950. Beloved father of Karen (Mark) Bowman of Plainfield. Adored grandfather of Eve Bowman. He was preceded in death by his wife Evelyn, his parents Vito and Julia Priano, and his brother Tony Priano.

Joseph was a devoted Husband, Father, Papa, a World War II Vet, diehard Cubs fan, natural athlete, and a fiercely loyal friend. He loved his family and any party with great food and wine. In his heyday he and Evelyn would cut a mean rug on the dance floor and had a trophy or two. His smile could light up a room and his sense of humor was always on point. He cared deeply, gave generously, and took a calm approach in any situation.

For those who would like to leave a lasting tribute, Joseph would like to honor his wife Evelyn’s life. Memorials/donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Family and friends attending the service are asked to bring a single rose to leave a symbol of their love with Joseph. If possible, please wear a Cubs hat in his honor.

Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday, February 18th 12:00 Noon at the Overman-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 15219 S. Joliet Rd., Plainfield, IL 60544, corner of Routes 30 & 59, Plainfield. Interment will follow at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, Elwood, IL.
