Joan Hertzberg passed away at her home April 8, 2014 at the age of 98. After growing up in New York City and then raising a family in southern Ohio, she and her husband, Edward Hertzberg, moved to Ashland, Ore. in 1978 where Joan pursued her writing, became active in the Unitarian Fellowship, volunteered accounting services for the elderly, thrived on Shakespeare theater, and finally joined the Mountain Meadows Retirement Community. Her last years were fulfilling, rewarding, and filled with love.

A memorial will be held at the Ashland Unitarian Universalist Church at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 11, 2014.
