  3. A new star is born in heaven, but oh how we miss this courageous, wonderful friend down here.
    Thinking of you often and our sympathies to her family and especially to Bev.

  4. To all of Noreen’s family, friends and especially to Bev—It was our distinct honour and pleasure to have met and become a friend of Noreen’s thru the rallies held with our little trailers. She told me she never worried about hauling her camper solo, because “there was always so many wonderful folks who offer to help me”. She spoke lovingly about her winters in Florida and especially was thankful to the kind friend on whose property she parked. We will think of her often, with love in our hearts. She was a lovely lady and we will miss her.

  5. So sorry to hear of Noreen’s passing. I always enjoyed chatting with her when she came into the library. I will miss everything about her. My heart goes out to her family & friends.
