Joan R. Huston, age 89, of Hainesport, NJ passed away in Voorhees, NJ on January 7, 2020 surrounded by her family.
Joan was a longtime resident of Hainesport, NJ where she was the first female mayor, former police commissioner and was on the planning and zoning board for many years. She was a Burlington County Democratic Committee Woman for over 50 years.
