Cherie Jo Lynn

d. April 3, 2012

Cherie Jo Lynn, 47, of Charleroi, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 3, 2012. A daughter of Joanne Sedell Lynn of Fallowfield Township, and the late Rodney E. Lynn, she was born Feb. 8, 1965, in North Charleroi. She was a 1984 graduate of Charleroi High School and a 1988 graduate of Duquesne University, where she received her bachelor's degree in pharmacology. After graduating from Duquesne, she began working with Lou Farkos at Tenth Street Pharmacy in Charleroi. On Aug. 12, 2002, Cherie fulfilled her lifelong dream as she became the proud owner and operator of Tenth Street Pharmacy; a position she held until her untimely death. One of the most important things to Cherie was always her customers. This is something she would prove numerous times when someone would run out of their medication on a weekend, holiday or after business hours. She would drive to the pharmacy, refill their prescription and personally deliver the medication to them. She will be deeply missed, not only by her family, but by the many people she has touched in her 24 years as a pharmacist. Cherie was a member of the Duquesne University Alumni Association, the Community Pharmacist Association, the Pennsylvania Pharmacist Association and was a member of the Charleroi Lions. In her spare time, she enjoyed planting flowers, playing softball, bowling and miniature golf and was most passionate about supporting and working with charitable organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Relay for Life. In addition to her mother, she is survived by daughters, Caitlyn Marie Massaro and Alexandra Lynn; a sister, Nancy Milinovich and husband, John, of McMurray; aunts, Darlene Gilmore and husband, Buzzy, of Donora, and Peggy Nan Swab and husband, John, of Phoenix, Ariz.; an uncle, Joseph Sedell and wife, Alice, of Carlisle; and a niece and nephew. In addition to her father, Cherie is preceded in death by two brothers, Rodney E. Lynn Jr., and John R. Ronick. Friends will be received Monday, April 9, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. in the Melenyzer-DuBarr Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, Inc., 825 Fallowfield Ave., Charleroi, and on Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., the hour of service, at the First Christian Church, 61 Walnut Ridge Road, Charleroi. Interment will follow in Mon Valley Memorial Park, Donora. Those attending the funeral service on Tuesday are asked to go directly to the church.
