Noemi departed this life on March 23rd at Mississauga Hospital with her beloved husband Greg and daughter Dayna by her side and wrapped in the love of her adored daughter Carley, her son-in-law David and grandchildren Declan and Neve.
Lovingly remembered by her mother Erika Kiss, Sister Leila her husband Frank and their daughters Amanda and Kaily, Brother Tom his wife Francine, Sister-in-law Anne her husband Bruce and Anne’s children Sarah, Dan, Jeff, brothers-in-law Dave and Stephen his wife Barbara.
Although ALS brought Noemi’s life to an untimely end, she always lived it to the fullest. A graduate of Silverthorne Collegiate Institute and the Ontario College of Art & Design, Noemi worked as a graphic artist at Atomic Energy, Royal and Sun Alliance, Maritime Life, created a new company with two partners, Pixels Pen and Ink and ultimately retired as Senior Art Director & Studio Manager for John Hancock.
But it was with her extended family and wide circle of friends that she found her most joy – celebrating life’s milestones, hosting dinners, travelling, working on art projects, golfing, skiing and simply sharing time together. Noemi’s heart always seemed to have room in it for ‘one more’. At the end, she chose to make a final gift that brought new hope into the lives of three ‘new friends’ she had never met, by a donation of her organs
A celebration of Noemi’s life will be held at a later date when current restrictions are relaxed. If desired, memorial donations can be made to the ALS Society of Canada (www.als.ca) or Silver Creek Pre-School (silvercreekpreschool.ca).
Her life was a blessing – her memory a treasure
