BALL, Nora 'Noreen' - Peacefully at Haliburton Highlands Health Services on Thursday evening, July 14, 2016 with her family by her side in her 81st year.
She leaves behind her husband and best friend John, her daughter Janice (Don) and her grandson Rob.
Noreen was born in County Tipperary, Ireland in 1935 into a family of sixteen children. As a young woman, she moved to England to train as a nurse. It was there that she met and married John.
In 1971, they decided to emigrate to Canada. She lived in Oshawa, Port Perry and for the last 21 years in Stanhope Township.
Noreen will be remembered as a "walker." Up until her diagnosis, she was walking miles every day in rain or shine. She was also a lifelong fan of Coronation Street.
She will be missed by her sister-in-law Kath Davey (Geoff) and brother-in-law Michael Ball (Doris) and fondly remembered by brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews in British Columbia, Ontario, England and Ireland and by her friends.
A private Celebration of Life will take place. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Haliburton Community funeral home, Haliburton, Ontario.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation - Palliative Care Centre Fund would be appreciated by the family.
