She was born in 1925 in the Netherlands to the late Reyer and Cornelia Schoorl.

In her spare time, she enjoyed spending quality time with family, dancing, painting, playing the organ, spoiling her pets, cooking, baking, and loved being fashionable.

Survivors include her son, Michael C. Ruscitti; granddaughter, Rebecca L. Ruscitti of Roswell, Ga.; sister/brother-in-law; Cornelia and Maurice Scandurra of Chester, N.Y.; and multiple nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to her husband, Johanna is preceded in death by her brother, John Schoorl.

Services will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, July 28, at St. Columba Roman Catholic Church, 27 High St., Chester, N.Y. Interment will follow at St. Columba Cemetery, Route 94, Chester.
