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.😇
We love you Aunt Jackie! Our hearts are broken. So many things I need to say and no words can be found.
Dr Noonan will be greatly missed. She was a fantastic doctor and mentor to so many more current physicians. Her influence in medicine will go on forever in her trainees and patients.
I met Jackie when she agreed to be our physician for the hospice of the bluegrass pediatric team, known then as Daniels care. She provided guidance, tremendous knowledge and compassion. She was volunteering her time after retiring. I’m not sure she ever really retired. Dr Noonan was an inspiration and will be missed.
I am so sad to hear of Dr. Noonan’s death. I first met her in 1972 when my son John was admitted to UK at 4 days old. It would become a relationship of almost 34 years. She was always so full of energy. In 1989, John had surgery that lasted 14 hours. I am not sure how many times she changed her clothes that day so she could keep giving updates on his surgery. She always said that children with heart problems didn’t grow like normal children. To John’s delight, he could hold out his arm and she could stand under it—he grew, but she didn’t! She came to visit John when he was in St. Joseph Hospice Care about a week before his death. this was in March, 2006. I am sure there are many parents who will is her, a living legend!
