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.
Dr. Noonan was an extraordinary woman. Her compassion and drive to help others was inspiring. I was privileged to assist her while working at UK and get to know her. I will never forget her and the stories she shared. My condolences to her family, she was a wonderful person.
She was our son, Chads Doctor In 1980. We loved her dearly! She was a very kind and intelligent lady that touched many lives! Truly an angel!

I had open heart surgery at 13 months old and saw Dr. Noonan for over 15 years. She was a special lady that I always knew would take great care of me. Prayers for your family.
Our sincere condolences to Dr. Noonan’s family. She treated me for a heart condition when I was in elementary school. Her calm manner and expertise was a great comfort to my family at the time and we always knew I was in excellent hands when she was involved. It came as no surprise when, later in life, I read about her professional achievements. What a legacy! She will be missed by all who knew her.
