Mrs. Noren was a wonderful person. I did not know her for a long time but she was always the highlight of my day. I remember all of the wonderful stories that she shared with me. I think the best one was of the rat that managed to get in her bbq and eat all of the food! Although she was really weak by the end of the semester she always did her best to educate my fellow classmates and me. Making jokes and little rhymes to remember the parts of a DNA backbone. She told me by the end how she was excited to go and she her family in Alberta and she told me how proud she was of her son owning his own business and her daughter. She changed my perceptive on a lot of things and made my final months of high school memorable. Mrs. Noren was such a wonderful person; in a short amount of time I was able to create many positive and memorable memories of her. When I heard of her passing I had to excuse myself from the classroom in university as the news left me tears for hours. If I had such a hard time with the news I can only imagine how hard it is for her close family and friends. To you I will not say I am sorry for your lose but rather thank you for being such a big part in such a wonderful women’s life because I know by the way she spoke of you she truly loved you. Thank you for sharing her with students and with others, thank you. I wish that she is at peace now and no longer suffering as she fought hard.

I would like to extend my deepest condolences to Craig, Ryan, and Rochelle, for their loss.
Our group of hockey parents that spent so much time together at innumerable rinks, all those years ago, has lost a member of the family. Debbie always maintained a wonderfully positive outlook, no matter how tense or difficult the games might have been. She was an absolutely first class individual, whose infectiously positive outlook, brightened the day of everyone around her. It was a pleasure and an honour to know Debbie, and to consider her a friend.

From: Susan Mey

I saw Debbie from time to time during family re-unions. She was always bright and witty, the life of the party. We are so sad to hear that Debbie has lost her life at such an early age, and send our prayers to her family and for her eternal rest in peace.

I only just heard of your passing. You were an amazing women, always cheerful and outgoing. You helped me a lot when I’d have my panic attacks in class. I will never forget you, definitely one of the greatest teachers I have met. You will be greatly missed. Rest in Paradise Mrs. Noren.

From: Emily grant

When I think back to my memories in ACSS, I always find myself remembering mrs norens biology class. She was my favourite teacher I’ve ever had. Her spirit and enthusiasm was my highlight if my grade 11 year. My favourite memory was her always bringing her Dalmatian to class, he was so cute! My condolences go out to her family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss. I’m also so sorry that I did not hear of this sooner. I moved schools in my senior year, so I did not hear of her passing right away. I’m sorry I didn’t get to say a proper good bye either. Heaven has gained another angel RIP Mrs.noren.
