  • I am a technician at Rite Aid pharmacy on Main Street. Joan was my personal hero and very very dear to me. I am so very sorry to hear that she is gone. She got me through a lot of very tough things in my personal life, both with my physical and mental health and honestly if it weren’t for some of the heart to hearts I was privileged to have with her, I may not still be around today. Joan taught me to love and value life and to never let anything get me down enough to give up. I will never forget her as long as I live. I wish I could have said goodbye. My thoughts are with you all.

    • My Sister loved life, family and her friends. She always considered all of you at Rite Aid Pharmacy her friends. Keep her in your heart and she will always be with you.
      Her loving “Oldest” Sister. Connie
