In August of 2017, Nonie and Robin moved back to Kamloops after living in Calgary for many years. Nonie enjoyed family gatherings and was always a part of every celebration. Sunday dinners together, birthdays, whatever the occasion, she enjoyed the food and a glass of wine and the love of family.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Doctor’s and Nurses on Sixth Floor North for the care and compassion that Nonie received during her stay at Royal Inland Hospital. A private family celebration will take place at a later date.
