Special Aunt/Zia to many Nieces & Nephews. She will be sadly missed by many friends and extended family.
Noella was a devout Catholic, who has now joined her Lord and Saviour in the Kingdom of Heaven. She was known for her dedication of volunteering her time within the Church and her Community. Noella loved spending time with her Family, exploring her artistic talents, and reading & writing. She found such joy in Nature, and always saw the beauty in the world. She treasured her Husband, Children and Grandchildren, especially embracing her role as "Nana" with grace, love, and her tender heart. Noella was truly loved by all that knew her.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all involved in her medical support over the past weeks.
