Joan Tierney

April 28, 1946 — April 6, 2015

Joan Marie Tierney, 68, of Fertile, MN, and formerly of Crookston, died Monday evening, April 6, 2015, at RiverView Health in Crookston. Joan was born on April 28, 1946 at Grand Forks, ND, the daughter of Elwin and Barbara (Lankas) Fontaine. She grew up in Inkster, ND where she received her education. Joan was united in marriage to Roy Pierson and from their union three sons were born: Jeffrey, Timothy, and Rodney. She later married Patrick Tierney and they lovingly welcomed a son, Gerald, to the family. Joan made her home in Crookston for many years, and became a resident of the Fair Meadow Nursing Home in Fertile a year ago. She will be very sadly missed by her family and friends. Joan is survived by her sons: Tim (Tami) Pierson of Crookston, MN, Rodney Pierson of Manvel, ND, and Gerald Tierney of Thief River Falls, MN; 10 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; a brother, Elwin "Red" Fontaine Jr. of St. Paul, MN, and other relatives. She was preceded in death by her parents; a son, Jeff Pierson; 2 brothers, Jerry and Sonny Fontaine; and a sister, Donna Lucht. May God richly bless Joan's memory.
