Noryne was a devoted wife, bridge player and eager travel companion of Ross’s over the years until they purchased Lakeview Lodge and Cottages of Cavendish , which they owned and operated together for almost twenty years.

She loved animals and was extremely fond of her dog Brandy and cat Muffin, her neighbors dogs and more recently the many dogs of her nieces and nephews. There was always a box of treats by her chair! She was generous, insightful and had a great sense of humor.
