I have lost one of my dearest friends who was like a sister to me. I could always rely on Joanne whenever I needed help or advice. I trusted her judgement and wisdom. I will cherish my great memories of our time together and her infectious giggle. Friendship does not end at death. It is eternal. I am so grateful to have been able to spend the afternoon with Joanne and Pat, another dear friend, a day before Joanne’s passing. Kathy, Jeff, family and friends….I share in your grief at our very sad loss.

Love always,
Susan Kelly

Joanne and I were very close friends during her P&W days in East Hartford. We were both Administrative Assistants at the time and 13 years my elder. I looked up to her as a friend and to show me the ropes. I learned a lot from her….we had so much fun together at happy hour and hanging at her home. I just spoke to her not long ago as we kept in touch. Joanne… you will be missed by so many! Until we meet again my friend.

With love,
Lisa Henry

I didn’t learn of this sadness until today. For reasons unknown to me Joanne stopped keeping in touch. I took the loss of her friendship with great pain. Joanne and I worked together side by side volunteering at Safe Space. I admired how smart and quick witted she was. We laughed a lot, even her giggle was unique. She loved animals like I did, part of her caring nature. She sure loved her sister and brother in law and talked about them often. I was glad I had the opportunity to meet them. When she told me she was raised in Conn. we discovered it was a few blocks away from my friend who lives there. On my next trip to Conn. I stopped and took pictures of her old house where she was grew up. I will miss Joanne very much!

Joanne…my dear friend and sister, the Christmas holidays are upon us and I can’t tell you how much I miss you. All of the past Christmas days we have spent together over the years are not forgotten. You are here in spirit this year and we will still have our laughs. I love you my friend and enjoy this holiday with your angels. Love, Sooz

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
