Joanie (Alba) Bivinetto joined her heavenly family peacefully on April 16, 2020 at the age of 56. She was born on November 27, 1963 in San Pedro, Ca. She began her career in 1986 when she became a member of the I.L.W.U. Local 13 as a longshoreman, before she transferred to Local 63 as a clerk. She loved her career with I.L.W.U., and it ended with a very proud 33 years of union membership.

Joanie had a smile that would light up the room, her laugh was contagious, and could be heard from afar. She had a gentle soul and heart of gold. She was small and fiesty, but also full of life and so much fun to be around. She loved playing cards, and loved drawing and painting. It brought her great joy and comfort.

Joanie will be reunited with her husband Frank J. Bivinetto Sr. and many other loved ones she missed on a daily basis.

She is survived by her loving family, children Rita (Fino) Fernandez , Frank Bivinetto (Kirsten), Ryan Bivinetto (Phelina) Steve Bivinetto (Heidi) step-son Grandchildren Dominique D’Aquanno , Hailey Fernandez, Nathan De Guzman, Micheal Fernandez, Luke Bivinetto, Micah Bivinetto; survived by her siblings Rudy Alba (Norma) , Florence Klieinjan (Steve), and Lorraine Alba (Ernie); and numerous nieces and nephews. She was also survived by her longtime boyfriend Peter Wood, and her best friend Julie Peat.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, face masks and social distancing is required.
