On Monday, September 16. 2019, our beloved NORIS WILSON, Mother, Nana and friend, peacefully passed into her loving Saviour Jesus’ arms at the age of 94. She is survived by her daughter Cristina and dear granddaughters, Melissa and Andrea, along with some cousins in Italy. Predeceased by baby in infancy.
Born in Casale Monferato, Italy on March 4, 1925, Noris came to Canada when she was just two years old, living in Cademan, Alberta with her mother and father. Her family then came to Ontario, where Noris attended various schools, including Earl Haig Collegiate and Shaw Business College. Noris worked many years at TransCanada Pipelines as a secretary. In 1954, She married Glen Wilson, and they had one daughter. Living in Etobicoke for 40 years, Noris made many friends, as she worked for a Community School and Pool for almost 20 years, until she retired at 65. Leading senior bus tours all around Ontario was one of many of her favourite roles. She also loved to garden, with her poodle dog Missy, and her treasured rescue dog Slippers, at her side. Noris had a good sense of humour, and was also was fond of dancing, travelling, reading (especially her Bible), volunteering on her daughter’s school trips , listening to music and she was a great cook. Noris was also involved with the Women’s group at Westmount Park Baptist Church.
When Noris became a Nana, she made the move to Mississauga in 1997 to help look after her two granddaughters, whom she adored with her whole heart and soul and who became her reason for being.
