NOREEN ANNE WEBSTER (published on October 09, 2010)



NOREEN ANNE WEBSTER (nee STANGER) 1958 - 2010 On Wednesday, September 29th, 2010, Noreen Anne Webster passed away at the age of 52 years in her home with her family by her side. Noreen was born July 15, 1958 at the Swan River Valley Hospital, to Clayton and Jean Stanger. She received her education in Swan River, graduating in 1976 from the Swan Valley Regional Secondary School. She entered nursing training in September 1976 at Misericordia Hospital in Winnipeg, MB. She graduated as a Registered Nurse in June of 1978. Noreen retired in 2008 from the Swan Valley Health Facility after 30 years of practice. Noreen loved her profession, and made many close friends during these times. She married James (Jim) Webster on September 30, 1978. They spent their entire life together in Swan River, MB. Noreen was very proud of her yard and enjoyed spending countless hours in her flower gardens. When she wasn't in her garden, she enjoyed scrapbooking, cooking, and hiking with Jim and their close friends. Noreen enjoyed family times and was especially proud of her three grandchildren. A few of Noreen's special memories were at Clear Lake and Madge Lake with her family and at numerous arenas across the prairies attending her children's hockey and ringette games. Noreen and her camera never missed a family event. Noreen was very involved in the community. She was a member of the St. Andrews United Church, Swan Valley Band Booster, Ray's Angels slow pitch team, and assisting in the organization of the annual Terry Fox Run. In February 2007, Noreen was diagnosed with lung cancer. Although the prognosis was poor, she was determined to find her cure, and never lost hope. She fought the disease courageously from day one. Noreen is survived by her loving husband James (Jim) Webster of Swan River, her three children Janene (James) Baldwin of Penhold, AB, Darren (Tammy) Webster of Swan River, MB, Shauna Webster and boyfriend Steven Saranchuk of Winnipeg, MB, three grandchildren Shaley, Kally, and Devon Baldwin, sister Lori (Brian) Contant of Winnipeg, MB, and their children Aaron and Jayme Contant, nieces Kim (Kelly) Vandemark of Tulley, ND, and Sandra (Ryan) Cook of Birtle, MB and mother-in-law Phyllis Webster of Swan River, MB.
