Nonnie always referred to our family as "Our little family". Although "Our little family" is a little smaller, we are blessed to have been able to make so many memories that will last a lifetime! She was at peace and looking forward to being reunited with Mike, Shannon and Brennen in Heaven.
Nonnie made an impact not only to those who personally knew her, but also to those who followed her battle through mutual friends and the kind and loving hospital staff at UCLA. The staff that met her could not help making a loving connection with Nonnie that people in that profession are warned not to make. I heard that the staff would actually argue who was going to take care of Nonnie on their assigned shift. She was always the favorite patient and never argued or complained, not even once!
There are so many memories that we all have of Nonnie and we invite you all to join our family on June 18, 2010 at 10:30 A.M to celebrate her life. The services will be held at The Grove Community Church located at 19900 Grove Community Drive Riverside, CA 92508. In lieu of flowers or gifts, we ask that all donations be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
