Noni was a dedicated Catholic, served as a Eucharist Minister, loved tennis, art, specifically watercolors, participated in pottery, and was an active equestrian with the Bellwood Hunt. She also enjoyed a good laugh anytime. A great many were blessed by her advice and prayers, all who knew her will miss her. Due to current circumstances Noni’s Mass of Christian Burial will be private. Her family would like to thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Noni will be interred at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Cheltenham, with her husband. Noni has requested that in lieu of flowers donations be made to St Josephs Indian School, Chamberlain, South Dakota for whom she hand produced knit goods for many years while at Jenners Pond.
