Woodstock – Margaret (Peg) Louise Robichaud, born October 2nd, 1965 passed away at 52 years old on June 30, 2018 after a four-year battle with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer since 2014. Those who knew Peg know that she was a stubborn soul and fought this battle with everything she had. Peg was a hard-working individual at the Rite Aid Distribution Center as an Area Manager in Dayville, CT since 1992, not letting her cancer get in the way of her job. Throughout everything, one of her main goals was always to return to work and to her “people.”
Peg leaves behind her husband Michael, daughter Nicole, her life-long best friend (and sister in-law) Brenda Holden, stepdaughter Pamela Trites, stepsons Michael Robichaud Jr., and Ernest Robichaud, her brothers Albert Sharpe and Eric Sharpe, as well as her sisters Judy Chauvette, Leslie Gilbert, Reenie Soltys, and Paula Sharpe, granddaughters Abigail Robichaud and Elissa Robichaud, grandsons Ernest Robichaud Jr., Sullivan Trites, and Michael Trites, and many nieces, nephews, cousins as well as the rest of her family (including her pets). She also leaves behind her close friends at the Rite Aid Distribution Center who she loved dearly and always made them a priority.
Throughout this difficult journey with cancer, Peg’s one goal that she wanted to achieve was to see her daughter Nicole, 17, grow up. Although this will not happen, her fight is admirable to all and her daughter will continue on to make her mother proud. Many good memories will forever be remembered when Peg is mentioned and thought of, such as telling people to get out of her office at work, giving people her famous “glare,” being a horrible and humorous driver, her love for iced coffee and cats, and most importantly- the love she had for those close to her.
