MORROW, Noel Gertrude (nee Oxenbury) - Sunday January 29th, 2012 at Peace Arch Hospital in her 93rd year. Predeceased by devoted husband James William (1999). Loving mother of Carol Ann (Maurice) Wright, she will be fondly remembered by grandsons Sean and Kerry (Amanda) Wright, and great-grandchildren Kylan and Sasha. Her many accomplishments as a Canadian swimmer, athlete, and Olympian will be overshadowed only by her elegance, strength of character, and her indomitable spirit. A quiet inspiration to all that knew her, the memory of her life will forever be an example of the way we as people should treat one another. There will be no formal ceremony but the family asks that in remembering her, you instead give that time to celebrating your own family and friends. Donations can be made to either the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation in lieu of flowers.

Arrangements under the direction of Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, Surrey, BC.

Noel Morrow was my swimming and diving coach for many years with the Crescent Beach Swimming Club. She set high standards for her young competitors and we learned lifelong lessons of self-confidence and good sportsmanship. Noel was a beloved friend....

I will always think of Noel, when I see pink roses, homemade Xmas cake and anytime there is a crab feed. Despite being a very regal & dignified lady, she could also just be a reall hoot !!! I will miss her. She was most proud of her family ! In my thoughts CA & Mo
