Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County - Comedic legend Joan Rivers leaves behind her laughing legacy, which made it's mark in Luzerne County.  She took the stage at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre four times over the years, the most recent in 2013.

During that appearance the Hollywood A-lister even used a local stylist.  Sakari Master Stylist Dale Zyck says "it was literally like being with your grandmother.  She was very very warm, inviting, and very, very witty like you see her on TV."  Will Beekman, Managing director Kirby Center, adds "it was hands down one of the funniest nights we've had here at the Kirby Center and it's a big loss to the comedy world."  Those at the Kirby Center say she was one of the best and easiest celebrities to interact with.

Rivers leaves behind her daughter Melissa, and her grandson Cooper.
