I was wishing Nonie and Clark (by email) a happy 59th wedding anniversary yesterday (my wife and I share the same date of 10 Aug), when I discovered that she had passed away last November. Nonie’s passing came as a shock. I am saddened by her loss as we had built a friendship through the shared genealogy interest we had piecing together “our” family tree. As it turns out we are second cousins. Her help filled in a lot of holes about parts of the family that we each knew only a little about. I had tried contacting Nonie a couple of times this past year and was a bit concerned that I had not heard back. We last corresponded a year ago when she told me that she was only two years away from celebrating her 60th wedding anniversary . My sincerest sympathy goes out to Clark and sons for your loss. Nonie was a wonderful person and will be missed.

I was saddened to learn of the passing of Nonie Swanson, She was such a kind woman and will be greatly missed. I have so many childhood memories of spending time at the Swanson’s, the 7 acres, learning to water ski and the many meals I had there. God bless CANS.

Sorry to hear of the great loss of Mrs. Swanson. She was a kind women with a great sense of humor and was very good to all of the friends of her sons when we were growing up. I will always remember her Boston Terrier, Prudence, and her big green station wagon we all rode in,
