Londonderry, NH — Joan L. Bompastore, 50, of Londonderry, NH, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 13, 2013, at her home surrounded by her loving family.

Raised in Andover, she was a graduate of Andover High School, received her B.S. in Computer Science from Merrimack College and her Masters in Computer Science from Boston University. She later moved to Londonderry, NH where she had been a resident for the past 24 years.
She is survived by her loving husband of 24 years, Paul Bompastore of Londonderry, and her five beloved children, Nicholas, Andrew, Matthew, Stephen and Teresa Bompastore, all of Londonderry, NH; her brother, John Pallone and his wife, Donna; and her sisters, Anne Bauer and her husband, John, and Janet Niceforo and her husband, John; her mother-in-law, Italia Bompastore; her brother-in-law, Anthony Bompastore, and sister-in law, Rita Coxhead and her husband, John; and many dear nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Joan was an active parishioner of St. Mark's Church where she served on the Pastoral Council. She lovingly cheered on her children at sporting events, school concerts and dance recitals. She was the most happiest surrounded by her family on one of their many adventures; summer fun at her parents' lake house, skiing at Cannon Mountain or on one of the many other exciting family vacations. Joan truly loved life and enjoyed the many blessings she had, always living out her faith in her everyday life. It was her deep faith and spirituality which helped Joan endure the many hardships of her illness, and gave her the strength and courage to fight valiantly until God's plan was realized.
