We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Island Funeral Home Limited O/O Simpson Funeral Home Limited
In Loving Memory of
Noella Ann (Fox) Moggy
December 24, 1952 - July 25, 2022
Peacefully passed away at the Manitoulin Health Centre - Little Current surrounded by family. Reunited, never to be parted again with the love of her life, her husband Dallas. Til death do you part simply did not apply to them. Nothing stands in the way of true love.
Mom was born in Wikwemikong on Christmas Eve 1952 to Jim and Georgina Fox (nee Peltier) and delivered by midwife, her own Grandmother Sophie Peltier. Grandpa said it was the best Christmas present he ever received, his first born baby girl.
Mom and Dad were married in November 1971 and moved into the home they would share for the rest of their lives and began the farm. Mom was the perfect farmer's wife with her strength and boundless energy. She loved to cook and bake. Her pies and homemade bread were legendary. She loved gardening and tending to her many beautiful flower beds, hosting dinner parties and a good jigsaw puzzle. At 40 years old, she returned to school and received her College diploma as a Developmental Services Worker, winning the Cambrian College President's Silver Medal Award upon graduation. From there, she worked at Lakeview School for many years. She loved her job and her students. Mom will always be remembered for her sense of humour, infectious laugh and kindness.
Survived by her children Derrick (Saeideh), Angie and Amanda. Grandchildren Ryan and Brittany (Toby) and soon to be born first great grandson, Colt. Siblings: Jerry (Millie), James (Michelle), Rhonda Hopkins (Curtis predeceased), Sandra Browne (Peter), Debbie, Jennifer and Pat (Colleen). Brothers in law: Larry (Sue), Blaine (Fran), Marvin, Terry (Joyce). Many nephews, nieces, cousins and her beloved kitty companions Muffin, Cupcake and Biscuit (Mr. B).
Predeceased by husband Dallas (2021), parents Jim and Georgina Fox, brother Francis (Nancy), brother in law Royce and in laws Ralph and Audrey Moggy.
