Your life and work, your dedication and love enabled us to find answers for my daughter. Rest in peace Dr Noonan, all of us parents owe you much gratitude ❤️
Sorry for your families loss, was very privileged to meet Dr Noonan in 2011 in Chicago at a Noonan syndrome event. A lovely lady who many families will be forever grateful for supporting families across the world. From a Noonan syndrome family in the UK

Dr. Noonan was a very special person. I started working for her in 1972 when I was 19 years old and continued doing so for 40 years in one fashion or another. Needless to say, she was excellent to work for and I was proud to be associated with her. She was an excellent pediatric cardiologist who put her patients before anything else and loved traveling eastern Kentucky to keep track of those who couldn't come to UK. My sympathy to the family. She will be greatly missed.

I LOVE YOU Aunt Jackie! You certainly left your mark in this world, and in our hearts forever!
Rest in peace Auntie Jackie. I will never forget my trip to KY to stay with you and grandma when I was turning 13. What a special treat. The 3 J's are together again. xoxo
Dr. Noonan saw my son, Patrick, when he was only 7 weeks old. His open heart surgery was performed 5 weeks later. With other surgeries to follow. We are ever so thankful that God sent us to Dr. Noonan. Her care and concern was above everything we could have ever hoped for. Rest in peace.
