Today, we are gauered here to give our last respects to our
beloved sister and friend, Noreen Joyce Gibbons/Gumbs.

Noreen was born in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands on Septem-
ber 20, 1946 to Cynthia David. Being the only daughter, she
was a favorite.
Noreen was employed at the Department of Health. She
was very popular among many people whom she got in con-
tact with and was known to others a "Rope". She was very
kind and loving. Her hobbies were singing, dancing and also
a very productive sales lady with such products as Topper
Ware, Beeline, Avon and The Daily News.
The last few year of her life were spent in New York
where she discovered her severe illness.
"No-No" your stay was short. We will miss that pleasant
smile; well always love you. May you rest in peace.

Because the Master took you home
We have to accept that you ae gone;
So we'll try hard to be brave and strong
As long as ci lives prolong.

Though we didn't have the chance to say
We love you so in our own little way
We'll ask for help and kneel to pray
When life's problems pas our way.

Pleae rest in peace, Mother Dear
For we all know you cared
While you were here, you did your best
We'll always remember you while you rest.
Love Always
Your Children

MEMORIES OF NOREEN

Memories don't leave like people do
And I know I can't forget you
Nor the friendship we both had
Of comforting each other when thing got bad.

The fun we had, the jokes we would make
Knowing how much each other could take
To ask how long could friendship lst
I'll say it took us death to part
Friends always
