Joan C. Bryden, 80, of Sidney Center passed away on November 6, 2021 at Wilson Medical Center in Binghamton. Born on April 23, 1941 in Goshen, New York, she was the daughter of the late Adolphe Casse, Jr. and Jessie (Spencer) Casse. On July 4th after graduating from Walton High School, Joan married the man of her dreams and they have shared 62 wonderful years together. Joan belonged to the Trout Creek Community Church and was past secretary. In her early years, she was delighted to take care of young children and later worked many years for HEAR Here! Audiology in Unadilla. She was a homemaker and made the best sticky buns in Delaware County. She loved to quilt and made many quilts for family members. She was a member of the Sunday Piecemakers Quilters Guild who made quilts for fire victims, ALS, Cancer patients, Quilts of Valor, flood victims, Children’s linus quilts, and the Sheriff’s Department. She also donated quilts to various organizations for raffle as well as to the Homeless Veterans Shelter and Abused Women’s Shelters. She even inspired her stone cutter husband to become an accomplished quilter. Joan was a past board of Hospice and was past President of the Trout Creek Women’s Auxiliary. All who knew her were entertained by her sense of humor. Survivors include her husband, Jim Bryden; a son, Jamie Bryden; brothers, Robert Casse (Sue), Adolphe Casse III (Michelle) and Phillip Casse; a sister, Lorraine Miller; and many nieces and nephews.
