Three years after losing Al in 1981, she married Stephen Ferega, who died in 2010. She moved to the Wellington where she made many new friends and was first runner-up for the Mrs. Wellington pageant.

Nora Lee was my Weight Watchers instructor and dear friend for many years. I just found out last week that we had lost her because I have been recovering fron surgery. Heaven now has one of the sweetest angels ever. I will miss visiting her at the assisted living center where she lived. Rest in peace Nora Lee. I loved you very much!

Nora Lee was the sweetest angel God ever created. I am a better person to have had her in my life. I hope she knows how special she was to me. I will miss her.

Nora Lee was a special friend to me--we worked together at Weight Watchers classes at Mercy Hospital and Our Lords Lutheran Church. Will always remember her as a spunky, fun loving, and always a joke teller, she could always captivate her audience. She was a beloved friend by all who knew her. She'll certainly be missed by all.

One of the dearest ladies and friends I have had the privilege to know. She was
full of love and laughter and that shows in her two beautiful daughters. There is
no doubt she will have a good time in her new home. Sondra

I was blessed just to know Nora Lee because she blessed everyone she came in contact with. She was always kind and loving to all. She was a great spouse to my Father Steve and an inspiration to our family. Nora Lee and her family are in our prayers. May her reward in Heaven be great.

Hi Nora Lee, you always brought such joy to all the ladies at our COS meetings every other Friday night. The room got silent when you spoke, we didn't want to miss one single word. You had such insight to the Lord and his blessings. I feel so privileged to have gotten to know you better this past year and you made me feel like I was one of your daughters. I thank God for letting us know you. You will forever be in my heart <3

I was so blessed to be her other daughter and our love and friendship goes back a good many years as Nora Lee and Al served with me in my early years as the Director of Christian Education at Greystone Presbyterian Church and their daughters Gayle and Wilma were one of our wonderful youth. This family was the highlight and an inspiration and love of my life. They will always have a special place in my heart. I know the Lord is enjoying all the Love, all her wonderful stories and especially knowing she was one of his Saints. I will miss our special visits on the phone and going to Church on Sundays. We have truly lost a great lady and a special Mother in my
life. Love, Marilyn

I am so glad to have gotten the chance to know Nora Lee. What an amazing woman of God. She would literally light up the room when she spoke of her Jesus. She will be missed by many.
