Joan L. Scheinholtz

SCHEINHOLTZ: Joan L. Scheinholtz, on Friday, Dec.31, 2021. Beloved wife for 61 years of the late Leonard L. Scheinholtz; loving mother of Stuart (Joanne) Scheinholtz of Tiburon, California, Nancy Scheinholtz of San Mateo, California, and Barry (Debby) Scheinholtz of Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. Sister of the late Arnold Libenson, Jerome (Harriette) Libenson, and Robert (Nona) Libenson. Sister-in-law of Maxine Libenson. Adoring grandmother of Max (Francisca Espina) Freeborn, Miles Freeborn, Sarah (fiancé Matt Shanes) Scheinholtz, Eli Scheinholtz, and Jack Williams. Also survived by many loving extended family members and friends. Joan grew up in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and moved to New York City after graduating from William Smith College. She met the love of her life, Len, in New York, and they realized their fate when they exchanged identical Valentine’s Day cards. (Valentine Schmalentine — as long as you’re healthy!) They married and moved to Pittsburgh shortly thereafter to the new suburb of Mt. Lebanon, where they raised three (brilliant!) children. Joan was a docent at the Carnegie Museum of Art where she led tours for many years and established lifelong friendships. Joan was an avid traveler, both with Len and her friends. She was a global adventurer with particular interest in arts, culture and cuisine. She dispensed sound advice free of charge. Joan was a friend to all and will be deeply missed.
