Not only did Dr. Noonan save my life in 1975 but she always remembered my specific case and would often ask my mother for updates when they ran into each other around Lexington. She was a pioneer in her field but also a wonderful and caring human being. God bless and rest in peace

The world of Pediatrics has lost an illustrious luminary. Dr Noonan was a brilliant physician scientist who was way ahead of her times.She was the epitome of humility and compassion. She loved coming to Eastern Kentucky for the outreach clinics to see her patients,so they did not have to travel.Our medical students at KYCOM were inspired by her!

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Noonan. Her contributions to the medical field and her patients will truly be missed. I knew of Dr. Noonan while I worked at UK. She was a very knowledgeable and personable lady. Though she is gone from us now, she will never be forgotten. Her legacy will always remain in our hearts.

Deepest condolences to the family of Dr. Noonan. She diagnosed me with a congenital heart condition prior to a surgery I was having at UK Children's Hospital. I was 7 years old and this was 1969. She was such an asset and compassionate lady of the field of Cardiology, but as a person. God bless you, Dr. Noonan, and thank you for your work here on Earth.
thank you for everything you have done. Your hard work and devotion gave us 3 months with our Baby-Jade, and for that we will be forever grateful. God bless and comfort your family during this difficult time. As Christians this is the day we work for to be united with our heavenly Father...dancing on the streets of Gold.😇
