Joan D. Giles (Mohring)

May 18, 1933 — February 28, 2022

Joan D. (Mohring) Giles, 88, of Wyomissing, passed away on Monday, February 28, 2022, in Columbia Cottage. She was the wife of the late George Ernest Giles, who passed away July 29, 2017. Born in Reading, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Leonard and Marie (Fleishman) Mohring.

Joan, a devoted wife and mother thrived by taking care of others. From daily home cooked meals to chief Uber driver for four kids running in different directions, every day tasks were approached with love. Sunday nights were spent playing games or cards with family and friends. Preparation for the Holidays took place weeks in advance. Hidden in the attic were the homemade cookies in hopes they would last until Christmas as all friends and family were welcome. The most memorable meal was Christmas morning with Spanish omelets, waffles, sausage, and Mimosas'. This tradition is still carried out today by Joan's grandchildren. Joan enjoyed learning the game of golf and playing with her family and friends at the Berkshire CC. She vacationed often with the family at the Jersey Shore, and made trips abroad with George. She especially liked trips to Switzerland, Italy and Monte Carlo. With the kids all moved out Joan and George spent winters in Southern California playing golf and dining out with old friends from Berks County and making new friends from around the country.

Joan will forever be loved by all she has touched.

Joan is survived by her children; Greg K. Giles, of Reading, Brian K. Giles, husband of Jennifer, SC, David G. Giles, husband of Veronica M., of Birdsboro, and Kim M. Giles, of Alexandria, VA. She is also survived by five grandchildren; Gordon, Carina, Shawn, Amanda, and Samantha, as well as one great-grandchild, Halden.
