Farmington, NH: Sharon Christina Rich (formerly Negrelli), 70, of Winter St. passed away suddenly on Monday, July 6, 2020 at Portsmouth Regional Hospital. She was born on July 1, 1950 in Norwalk, CT; the daughter of Wilfred Negrelli, and Concetta Colandrea Negrelli formerly of Westport, CT. She attended Staples High School in Westport, CT and Granite State College in Rochester, NH. After raising her children in Sandy Hook, CT she and her husband moved to New Hampshire where they spent the last 24 years. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Sharon volunteered at Cornerstone VNA, as an usher, in the Tiger Café, and prepared and delivered holiday food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas for her church where she was a member for over 20 years, and worked in human services caring for the developmentally disabled. She mastered the art of embarrassing her children (as any good parent should), often shared terrible jokes, and always maintained a sense of humor. When she was able, she loved to cook and always made enough food to feed a small army. While her family is devastated by her loss and will miss her terribly, we know that she wouldn’t want us to spend too much time grieving. Sharon is survived by her beloved husband of 50 years, David Rich; her children Justin Rich and his partner Beth Norton of Rochester, NH, Christina Craft and her husband Sean Craft of Portsmouth, RI, and Anthony Rich of Farmington, NH; 5 grandchildren, Olivia and Spencer Rich of Rochester, NH, Caitlin, Logan, and Finnegan Craft of Portsmouth, RI; her best friend of many years Joanie Davis of Dunedin, FL and countless other family and friends especially those from Grace Community Church in Rochester and Farmington. She was pre-deceased by her grandparents Anthony and Christina Colandrea, her parents and her grandson, Anthony David Rich. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her name, to her much loved Grace Community Food Pantry, 69 Wakefield St., Rochester, NH 03867 where she was a member for over 20 years. Due to Covid-19, a small, private service will be held on Friday for close friends and family only. To sign our online guestbook, please go to

David, I was so saddened to learn of Sharon's passing. It has been a joy to share life with the two of you as members of Grace Community Church. You both have served so faithfully for many, many years. My prayer is for you to know our heavenly Father's comfort and peace as you grieve the loss of your dear wife. In Christ's love, Nancy.

Sharon was like another mom to me in Sandy Hook. Our families grew up together and we have many fond memories at Lake Zoar and camping. My special bond with Sharon is that we have the same birthday and she’ll always be my birthday buddy. Sharon was feisty, caring, and hilarious. We always had fun together in CT and when the Riches “followed” us to NH. Much peace and love to David and all Sharon’s kids and grandkids. She will be sorely missed.

Sharon was a great friend for over 30 years. I call her my sister friend because we were very much like family. We first met in Sandy Hook. We had gone out for the day and there was a leak in our house that flooded the basement. Later that day Sharon and David came by to help wearing goggles and flippers. It was funny and made a bad day bearable. That's the way our friendship was even in troubling times we could always find something to laugh about. We shared our joys and sorrows. We played pranks on each other .We raised our kids together on Peach Lake. From years in CT to NH we went camping togethet, partied together,had family dinners together, had many an evening fire with the kids all hanging out. Once at a neigborhood bonfire in the snow where we had pizza delivered. We had some crazy times together too. Too many things to mention but I will never forget. God bless you Sharon. I miss you. I love you more

I’ve been remembering when you two came to Petaluma for the first time. You and she and Jim and I went to Hagstrom’s. As we were leaving the store, we passed by some empty boxes. One of them said “Pineapple Upside Down Cake.” Sharon reached out and turned it upside down.
