Nancy L. (Beaulieu) Noons
Nancy L. (Beaulieu) Noons, 81, of Rehoboth, passed away peacefully at her residence with her loving family by her side, on Monday, October 23, 2023. Born on July 30, 1942, in Providence, RI, the daughter of the late Arthur Beaulieu and Evelyn Chantre, Nancy lived a long, fulfilling life, leaving a lasting impact on those fortunate to know her. Her kindness, friendliness, and thoughtful nature made her a beacon of warmth and love in the lives of her family and friends.
Nancy was the cherished wife of the late Robert J. Noons. Together, they built a home filled with love and laughter, raising five wonderful children. She is survived by her sons, Robert D. Noons and his wife Nancy, Daniel A. Noons and his wife Lori, Steven Noons and his wife Tammy, her daughter Sheri Houde and her companion Scott Palmer, and Alfred Noons and his wife Kristen, all residing in Rehoboth, MA. Nancy was a dedicated and nurturing mother, always putting her family first.
She was the beloved sister of Paul Chantre of Winter Haven, Florida, Joyce Kazarian, of East Providence, whom she held a special bond with, and Jean Peterson of Riverside. She was preceded in death by her sister, Claire Heroux. Her siblings remember her as a pillar of support and a source of endless love and care.
Nancy was the proud grandmother of thirteen grandchildren: Ashley, Dan, Nicole, Tim, Brittney, Lauren, Megan, Bethany, Cristina, Rachael, Catie, Madison, and Dallas. She was also the great-grandmother of six: Milani, Aria, Capri, Jude, Hunter, and Nicholas. Nancy's heart was big enough to hold love for each of them, and she treasured every moment she spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will miss her dearly.
Nancy chose to dedicate her life to homemaking, a role she cherished. She took pride in creating a warm, inviting home for her family, and she was always there to offer a comforting word, a delicious meal, or a shoulder to lean on. Her family was her world, and she embraced every opportunity to spend time with them.
Beyond her family, Nancy had a zest for life that she expressed through her interests. She was an avid bingo player and enjoyed doing puzzles and playing games. Her competitive spirit was always in good fun, and she loved the camaraderie and excitement of these activities. Nancy also liked going to the casinos to play the slots, a pastime that brought her joy and excitement.
Nancy's life was a testament to the power of love, kindness, and thoughtfulness. Her memory will live on in the hearts of those who loved her. As we mourn her passing, we also celebrate the life of a woman who was a beacon of love and warmth, a woman who made the world a better place just by being in it. May she rest in peace.
