Noreen and I met as neighbors in the late 60's. She was a kind, intelligent, free spirited longtime friend. She introduced me to hosteling on a trip to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket in the 80's. It was a wonderful experience and a lot of fun. She will always be remembered.

Noreen O’ Leahy I will always will remember Aunt Noreen. She was a free spirit in her time, always loving and caring to everyone. My fondest memory is visiting her and cousins Don, John and Kathleen when we were young adults. She opened her house to me and my wife and showed us a wonderful time during our visit with her. During her visits it’s my Mom she always asked about the people in our lives and how they were doing; always expressing love and concern to everyone. She will be deeply missed. God’s Blessing, Bill Eltrich

I’ll always miss Noreen. We had been friends since early 70’s. Hiking, walking, visits and phone calls. She was ALWAYS easy to be with. We had many laughs, teas and remembrances. She’d simply drop by and make herself comfortable. Food and beds made no difference to her, it was the company she would seek. And, Thanks to John, we got to see each other one last time here in MA. at the Concord Inn. YOUR presence will be MISSED, my dear Noreen. Love you forever and ever, Nora
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Even to this day, I smile at one of our adventures. I heard about an Augustus Saint Gauden's Sculpture exhibit about two hours from Portsmouth. At this time, Noreen had a bit of a problem walking on uneven surfaces. Most all of the sculptures were spread out on grassy knolls to be observed. She politely and generously told me to go on ahead and she would simply sit in the shade. You have got to be kidding, no way was I going to do that. We did not come all this way for her to sit and not see these magnificent pieces of art, which she enjoyed. I asked her to get back in the car and without permission from the museum, drove her around on the lawns and grassy knolls, with her laughing all the way. Yes, we were stopped at one point, but after a courteous explanation, we were allowed to continue driving on the lawn.. We even stopped every so often and she was able to walk up closely to see the magnificent pieces on display. It was a fun day!.

Noreen is a cherished and loving gift to all of us, especially her family. I will not say "was", as her spirit lives on in all of those whose lives she touched. In life, she was a powerful, humble, generous and loving woman, and so very gentle. I admired her tenacity and loved our friendship. Always smiling and not just with her lips but with that twinkle in her eyes. Her presence will be especially and sorely missed by you, her dear family, and I shall also, In God's loving arms, she will hear: "Well done my child"...
