Sarah Ann Noonan

Sarah Ann (Sally) Noonan

January 9th, 1945 to September 20th, 2015.

With her beloved partner George Duffell by her side, Sally passed quietly and peacefully away after a two year battle with breast cancer.

Sally was born January 9th, 1945 in Regina, Saskatchewan.Her family travelled by train to Victoria, BC where they made their home for many years. Sally eventually settled in Cranbrook, BC where she raised her three girls. Sally decided to move to Nanaimo to be closer to her girls and it is here where she met her soul mate and best friend, George. Sally spent her working life within the education system.

Sally, a natural competitor, grew to love many sports throughout her life and made so many dear friends along the way. She had a true passion for golf and curling. She was an accomplished golfer and curler and spent many happy hours on the course or at the rink. She was a superb travelling companion.

Sally was most proud of her three girls Christine, Carolyn & Julie and how “strong” they all are. Sally took her responsibilities as a mom and ‘grannie’ seriously. Sal believed that true happiness came from giving.

In lieu of flowers, memorials/donations may be sent to the Nanaimo Curling Centre where George and Sally spent many happy hours perfecting their triple take outs.

A celebration of life will be held at the Nanaimo Curling Centre at 2:00 pm on Saturday, October 3rd.
