Noreen worked for 33 years with the Nova Scotia Justice Department. Most recently, she was the Registrar of Probate. Noreen received many awards throughout her career for her dedication, service and commitment. Noreen was a faithful member of the Parish Church of St. Leonard where she loved to sing along with the choir. Noreen enjoyed movies, novels and a good game of tarabish. Most importantly, she loved spending time with family and friends. She was never farther than a phone call away and could always be counted on. Noreen was always an animal lover, especially dogs. Her Shihtzu, 'Kobe' and rescue puppy, 'Misha' brought joy to her everyday.
