The loss of Dr. Noonan has left a hole in my heart larger than the one she cared for in me almost forty years ago. Words are not enough.

thank you for your contribution to the advancement of Noonan syndrome, a great loss!
Dr. Jackie Noonan was an incredible physician and teacher. I met her through her volunteer work with Hospice of the Bluegrass (now Bluegrass Care Navigators). She assisted with the Pediatric Palliative Care and Hospice Program. She was compassionate, caring, and dedicated. She was semi-retired, but still so very involved both at KY Children’s and in the community. Dr. Noonan was truly an inspiration. I know she deeply loved her family and I am deeply sorry for your loss. She will be missed.
I would like to convey my deepest condolences to Dr. Noonan's family and to the entire community of families related to Noonan Syndrome. We have been very fortunate to have this great professional and person who has given name and shape to a syndrome that was invisible. Thank you for lighting up the darkness for many families around the world. You will always be in our hearts.

Over the course of several years in the 1970s, Dr. Noonan successfully treated my daughter for a congenital heart condition. Dedicated, caring, compassionate, Dr. Noonan was a truly remarkable person. An engraved brick in her honor has been ordered and will be placed in The Lexington Woman's Recognition Garden, Wellington Park, Lexington, KY 40503.
