  • Given the weather, and constraints due to the WuFlu limited attendance at the service at St Genevieves, below are the opening comments presented by her devoted son-in-law Bill Fasy (by permission):

    “Good morning everyone, I am Norita Rose Timoney’s son-in-law. Early on, she was always ‘Mrs Timoney’ to me. When our first child was born, she asked me to refer to her as ‘grandmom’ for which she was very proud and I obeyed. I welcome everyone here and on YouTube for today’s Celebration of Life. I need to shout out to her son Greg and his family in Texas and California, to Cristian Messinger and Tara Timoney, Norita’s siter Lil and husband Paul Mita in Florida, brother Joe in Texas, and to all the Timoney and Hartley families. Last, but not least, to all the grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    I must say my favorite picture of grandmom was presented to me this week and used in her obituary. It is a picture of a beautiful, humble woman at the Devon Horse Show – but the rest of the picture was her walking with two scoops of strawberry ice cream on a cone. We all know that infectious, innocent smile and grace charmed the attendant selling the cone of ice cream. The other part of that smile was for us to recognize and laugh, because everyone else received only one scoop!

    Today she will always be in all of our hearts and know her journey to heaven was short and without hesitation. I hope the rest of us have it half as good and quick as her! God bless, keep her in your hearts and we love you grandmom!
