JOY FINN Obituary

Joy Marie Finn, of Fairview Township, Mountain Top, died on Monday, May 15, 2023 surrounded by family in the General Hospital where she was born and worked for many years. 

She was the daughter of the late Lawrence and Marie Hudock Randle. She was a member of the Mountain Top Historical Society. Joy worked as a nurse at General Hospital and previously at the Davis Nursing and Rehab Center in Mountain Top until her retirement in 2009. She enjoyed spending time with family and was an avid animal and nature lover.  Joy took in many abandoned animals, and a few humans along the way that needed shelter, food, and a place to feel safe.  She also provided daily care and food to wildlife and birds. She enjoyed sitting on her porch and watching the deer, turkeys, birds, "chippies and hummers" with Shelby at her side. 

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her partner, Lewis DeBellis, brother Lawrence Randle, and granddaughter Cassandra Finn. 

She is survived by her daughters, Joyce (Jeffery) Allbritain, Jill Machinsky; eight grandchildren, Jessica (Eddy), Robert (Alexandrea), Danielle (Zak), Cayley, Adam, Kendra, Amanda, AJ; four great grandchildren, Benjamin, Alaynah, Aiden, Azylah; sister Gail Hassay; sister-in-law Sharon; nieces, Sara (Joe), Jennifer (Joe), Kate (Kyle) and nephew, Devin (Jay).  Joy had many cousins, extended family members, neighbors and friends that she held dear to her heart.  Shelby, her beloved dog, her rescued cats, and all her "critters" will miss her deeply. 

Celebration of Life will be conducted on Thursday, May 25, 2023 at 2:00 pm, which would have been her 77th birthday at Desiderio-Lehman Funeral and Cremation, 436 S. Mountain Blvd, Mountain Top.
