JOANN TONER

Joann E. (Oberg) Toner, age 71, of Wilmington, DE, formerly of Boothwyn, PA, died February 13, 2017 at home surrounded by her loving family.

Joann graduated from Chichester High in 1963. During her early career worked as a retail representative for Lifesavers, American Chicle and Wrigley’s.
