Noreen met the love of her life, Donald in 1940 and were wed on October 9, 1943. They moved to Brandon, MB in the mid 1940’s which they would call home for the next 22 years. Noreen and Donald started their family shortly after which was the joy of her life, raising her nine children.

Mom was very proud of the five generations of her family which she loved immensely and valued the time spent with all of them. Her smile shone bright whenever her family was around.  These generations consisted of nine children, twenty five grandchildren, forty great grandchildren and six great great grandchildren. Mom had a heart of gold and welcomed everyone into her family with open arms.

An Angel

An angel lived among us,

A gift from God above.

She showered us with kindness

And shared with us her love.

She cherished every moment

With the man who was her life;

Walking hand in hand together,

Facing life with all its strife.

She loved her children dearly,

Each one a different way,

Nestled close within her heart.

Though, now, she’s far away.

She’s gone to live with Jesus.

But, she’s here with us, today,

Smiling down on every one of us,

And telling us she’s O.K.
