I met Noreen when she worked at the cabinet company my husband worked for. We became friends but lost touch for a few years when I ran into her again checking into the ER at Cape Cod Hospital. She was the the nicest, most down to earth person I have ever met. So kind and caring. I again lost touch with her and I've always wondered what happened to her. I am deeply saddened to hear of her recent health struggles and her passing.
May she RIP. Rest easy Noreen and say hi to Bob if you see him.

Dear Tim, Marcia, and family.
Noreen and I had a friendship dating back to 1970 when I was a staff nurse at Bridgeport Hospital. I always reminded Noreen that when I saw her arrive to the unit, I would hide since she was there to let me know my schedule would be changing and I'd be working the night shift. We bonded very quickly and from there we spent much time with your family, my family and weekends at the Cape. She became one of our family members and I became one of your family members. A once in a lifetime experience on a journey that included regular updates on each other and our families and plenty of laughing. I loved Noreen. She was one of the nicest people in the world. She was a "people " person. Her love of Cape Cod was contagious yet her recent health prevented her from doing many things she "planned" in her later years. God Bless her. May she Rest In Peace .

So Noreen, my dear you finally have the peace you sought through these last few years of a life of struggle. We will all miss those laughing Irish eyes and your genuine caring heart. You taught us all by your examples of courage in the face of adversity hope in the face is dispare and above all to love even when love was challenged. Know you will be missed and know we all cherish the special times we had with you. With loving sympathy- Connie

My deepest condolences to Tim, Marcia, and family for their loss. Noreen and I were close high school friends who had kept in touch over these past 58 years. She loved her VW bug and Cape Cod! Although our paths crossed less often over time we somehow managed to always rekindle those once in a lifetime high school experiences which made us laugh when we were young at heart and carefree. I can still picture her lying on the ground with her foot still in the stirrup after falling off her horse!
Although the past several years were very challenging for her health wise, Noreen remained positive and never lost her sense of humor. I will miss her.

With heartfelt sympathy,
Martial Robichaud

Dear Tim, Marcia and Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Noreen's passing. We had known one another for such a long time and would talk maybe twice a year and catch up. There are many fond memories of our time together growing up and later. Noreen was a caring person and it was a pleasure to know her.

With heartfelt sympathy,
Carol Charak Howard
