Her name/face seem familier from a long ago job, relation to Joe Gigante? Apprently they were no longer married if so. Just curious.In either case this is so sad if in fact it really was suicide. I guess we may never really know... God Bless her family.
Yes she was married to Joe.

I just want to let you all know, that Joia was found in her basement, sealed in a container, so basically she suffocated in there. Who knows how she got there, and the container was behind tons of furnature.:(
and this is how false rumors start...yes, she was inside of something, but it was not a "sealed container," and she did not "suffocate in there" -- please, people, if you don't have your facts 100% correct, don't spread rumors.

Hmmm I had a feeling..... What part of Florida? Sounds lovely.

OPINIONS ARE LIKE HEMORROIDS, EVERY A**HOLE HAS THEM. and, again, even yours truly.

I do try NOT to have critical opinions unless I believe I have sufficient evidence to support those opinions.

whatever the circumstances the poor lady at least 'appeared' to have tried to hide herself. God give her and her family and friends some peace. She seemed like a very nice lady judging from those that knew her. They say God always takes the good ones early.........do I have to live to 100?

All I remember is growing up with Joia, Joe and the kids, which were all such a pleasure to have around. I'll always miss giving Joia a BIG hug with her "Angel" perfume on, and watching her smile day in and day out. I haven't seen Joia in about 2 years now, last I saw her she came to visit me at my new job and it was still that bright smile with the beautiful outfits she use to put together, and her crazy beautiful hair :D I love you Joia rest in peace

i know your in a better place although i cant see your face i know your smiling down on me saying everythings okay- ill see you again someday.. i wish

Thank you.
Now let's hope Ms. Gigante gets justice.
why was she killed? You have info it was a murder? natural causes? was she a drug addict like most fo the sayville residents? that place is absolutly out of control..you cant go anywhere. Its in the paper for a crime every other day...

Cremosa Cheese thats where I knew Joe Gigante.... then he was married to Joia. I met her way back when. Even though its been so long ago she seemed to be a real nice person.
I wonder the people who knew her more recently, did she really seem to be that troubled? To actually do this to herself? It really seems very strange.Very curious.

Joia was the most amazing woman. She was always smiling and laughing. Dansss I remember her perfume, it was her signature sent, her great outfits and her giant smile. She could light up a room. Us girls miss you Joia, we know your in a better place now. We love you! Rest in peace.
