    My deepest sympathy to you & your sons Mark.
    I have very fond childhood memories of Noralee growing up in Cypress. She was always so happy and positive. She most certainly did not deserve the hardships life presented her with.

    Dear Mark and family

    I am so shocked and sadden to hear of Noralee’s passing and my heart goes out to all of you at this very trying time. I would like you to know that I have thought of Noralee so many times over the years. I can still remember getting on the bus with Noralee, I think we were around 7 years old, and it came as a great surprise to Gaby to find me walking down the road after school. I did this every day for a week. It was Noralee that finally convinced me to get on a horse. I can still hear that caring voice assuring me that we would be OK. I have a scar on my cheek from walking through the woods with Noralee. She was holding the branch and she let it go (accidentally) and it cut my face. Most kids would have just had a laugh but Noralee made sure it was OK before we carried on. For me Noralee was a gentle soul with great empathy and concern for people. She will be sorely missed by all.

    As my Mum would say when I was feeling sad and lonely and living miles away from the people I loved “Can you feel my arms around you” and I pass this on to you. My arms are around each one of you giving you my love and support.

    Words cannot express our profound sadness and surprise in hearing of Noralee’s passing. I have lost touch with many of my Nobleton Friends but the ‘Cummings Clan’ were often in my thoughts. Noralee and Mark exemplified everything that a loving couple and family should be. Our deepest condolences to Mark, Brett, Kurt, Carter, Hayden and Owen. Their wife and mother will be sadly missed by them especially, but also by all of us who had the honour of sharing some of her far too short life. May she rest peacefully and wait in heaven to be reunited with her boys. God bless you Noralee.

    Dear Mark and Boys, Even though we have not seen each other for many years, there is a bond that can never be broken. We grew up with Noralee and some of my fondest memories are of the Sholdice family. I am sure there is not a Cypress River girl who cannot remember walking out to the Sholdice farm for some adventure. When I remember Noralee, I think of her zest for life and always laughing. It was infectious. Please take care of yourself Mark and know that many people are with you in spirit.

    To Mark

    Brett,Kurt,Carter,Hayden,Owen

    There are no words that can completely say how one feels in this situation.

    Knowing Noralee(Mom) for several years now, was our pleasure to know her. Noralee(Mom) was always smiling and glowing about her boys and so proud of each and everyone of them. Knitting in the car between games at the Provincials was her way of calming the nerves & taking away the stress for her boys(and Husband) for the upcoming game. Coaching Kurt, Carter, & Hayden has been our pleasure and their mother smile is in them, they can light up a room with their mothers smile.

    Please accept our condolences.

    May God Bless you all in your time of sorrow.

    The Lord God all mighty need another Angel in Heaven.

    He now has a Beautiful One!

    Our hearts are saddened to hear of your loss. Noralee was an incredible person and a dedicated mother. Her smile and laughter is what we remember most.
    Find comfort in your memories. Remember the love …
    “When those we love go away, they never really leave us;
    they are with us now, wherever we are.
    Those whom we have cherished, live on forever,
    for love wraps itself around the heart.
    Although it’s difficult now,
    someday beyond our tears and all the world’s wrongs;
    beyond the clouds and all that we can see and touch,
    we shall all understand.” (unknown)

    To Mark and your sons,
    please accept my sincere empathy for Noralee’s passing. It was shocking news. We sometimes wonder why people with such zest for life and love life so much have to be taken so soon. The only answer I have come up with over the years is that only God knows why. I don’t always like that answer but it has given me comfort. It is my hope & prayer that it will comfort you and your sons.
    I was just thinking of Noralee a couple weeks ago, when I would drive her home to Cypress from Winnipeg for the weekend while she was in nursing. I would listen to her excitement as she talked about her schooling and I knew she would be one of the best, most caring nurses. As many have said, it was her nature to love and to care. We all saw that growing up with her and you were fortunate and blessed to see that for all these years after our school was done.
    As you mourn and help your sons mourn, I would encourage you to celebrate and treasure the memories you have from when you first liked Noralee in high school and share them with yours and Noralee’s sons. She has left a legacy for you all to be proud of and share.

    Our thoughts and prayer go out to you all. We enjoyed our time with Noralee when she came home with Karen after school events. She was truly a genuine person even at a young age.

    Dear Mark,Brett, Kurt, Carter, Hayden, and Owen,
    Noralee’s mum and family,
    It has taken some time for the news of Noralee’s passing to sink in.
    I can’t imagine the pain and loss you are all feeling, you have my deepest sympathy. Noralee and I took a year long trip of a lifetime together in Sept.1988 to New Zealand and Australia. Noralee was there when I first met my husband to be, the first day we arrived in Auckland. She was a great friend and travelling companion, we had so much fun together. The many hours that we spent travelling on the buses across Australia. We would try and do overnighters on the bus to save money on staying at backpacker’s. Some of the bus drivers got to know us as we kept getting on and off on their routes. I have so many photos of the times we had together and I will never forget them. Our last stop together on the way home was Hawaii, and Mark you came there to meet her. I think that was when you proposed to her. Although I hadn’t seen Noralee in many years I often thought of our trip together. You were an amazing person, so kind and caring. Noralee was a favourite in some of the backpackers and hostels we stayed in as she was always ready to wash everyone’s dishes!
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be into the future. I pray that you will feel God’s love and peace in the times to come. Lean on Him, He will give you the strength you need to get through each minute of every day. Love one another and be kind to each other. Noralee will be with you forever.

    Blessings,
    Elizabeth.

    Deepest sympathy to Mark and boys, Gaby and Noralee’s siblings in this very sad time. As many others what I always think of when I think of Noralee is her infectious laugh, just like her Mom’s and happy to hear she has passed this beautiful trait to her sons.

    Now a days families are spread every where and we miss so much of knowing each others families. It is so sad.

    Let her zest for life guide you on your lives’ journey.

    We were shocked and saddened to hear of Noralee’s passing. Our hearts go out to all of you at this time. Paul and I and our four children crossed many paths within the community school, pool and hockey arenas. I remember her smile, she was so easy to talk to about everyday events as we shared stories of our kids. She will me missed, but her boys are a testament to her love for them. We believe that tears do heal, memories do comfort and she will live on forever in your hearts.

I remember Noralee as a wonderful person and she will be sadly missed by many.

    I can’t tell you what a shock it was to hear of Noralee’s passing. Connie and I were just talking not long ago that we hadn’t heard from her in a long time. I knew with 5 boys there would be no lack of things to do. Please know how much she meant to Kim and I. I am so sorry we hadn’t been more in touch. She was a wonderful person and she will be missed and her great laugh. Please accept our deepest sympathies at this time. Take care.

    We were shocked to hear of Noralee’s passing. We met her and Owen at George’s Pool. She would sew, as she watched Owen swim. We would talk about our children. She would always tell me how much family and her children meant to her. We wondered where she and Owen were this year and now we know. Owen, Anthony expresses his deepest sympathies at this most difficult time and is thinking of you. Owen, your Mother will always be with you.

    Words seem so inadequate, but may these help in some way to let you know that many thoughts are with you all.

    We met Noralee almost 10 years ago at George Jacobson’s pool, where our son, Alex, had lessons, over those years, with Carter, Hayden and most recently, Owen.

    We were shocked to hear of Noralee’s passing. We will miss that infectious smile.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all,

I am sorry to hear about her passing away. I cant understand how it could happen to the most kindest , thoughtful person out there. She was so amazing. My thoughts are with you and the boys.

    It has been many years since I met Noralee and Elizabeth in Australia. They left such an impression on me that I came all the way to Canada for your wedding where that became the trip of my lifetime. This news has been such a shock and I am so sorry for your loss, Noralee has touched the lives of so many across the world, her spirit will continue to bring smiles to all who remember her wonderful soul.
