    Noreen will be missed deeply by our family. She was a gentle, sweet, kind woman and wonderful grandma to all of our children. We will always remember her wonderful sense of humor and generosity. How blessed we were to share so many special memories over the years together. You are a very bright light in all our lives Noreen and we will forever cherish our time with you. Though you are now enjoying the glories of heaven, you will live forever in all of our hearts. You were an angel here on earth and now an angel in heaven watching over all of us. Love, Nancy and John and children❤️

    Aunt Noreen was my godmother. I have many memories of how she’d always share a laugh with me whenever she’d visit us in Ottawa. Im sending my condolences and prayers to all of my American cousins

    Grandma Noreen was a sweet, kind happy soul. I was lucky to have her as s a Grandma for so many years . A few of my favorite memories are sleepovers at her apartment when I was a young kid,her fun waterbed, learning the rosary before bed, playing card games and her contagious laughter. She was always happy and laughing and cherished spending time with her grandkids and great grandkids. Rest in peace Grandma, I will miss you so much.

    Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your mom, Noreen. She was a kind and gentle woman who will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched. May fond memories bring you comfort. ❤

    Noreen was a joy to be around and I am grateful for our time together during may holidays and birthdays. Peggy, you have been an angel caregiver for your Mom for many, many years. You can take solace in having done so much for your Mom and easing her pain and bringing her much joy all these years. It is by no means easy to be a caregiver, and yet you shined so brightly as her guardian angel. I hope you take time for yourself to heal because it is very hard to be a caregiver. Noreen now rests in peace and is among her family including her own beloved parents. To the entire family I wish you all comfort and peace.
