Nellie T. Noga, 96, of Auburn passed away peacefully at The Commons on St. Anthony on Monday August 13, 2018.
Nellie was born and raised in Owasco, the daughter of the late Barbara and John Giza. She retired from General Electric in 1985. She was a devoted communicant of St. Hyacinth Church, a member of the Polish Falconettes, and the Holy Rosary Society. She cherished her many years making thousands of pierogi’s with her wonderful co-workers at St. Hyacinth.
Nellie contracted polio as a toddler. She met that challenge head on, making her a strong and determined woman, who maintained an "I can do anything" attitude her entire life.
Nellie was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Her family was her focus, sharing her many talents and instilling her value of hard work that would shape everyone’s life. She loved to cook, sew and crochet. Her beautiful Afghans will be enjoyed by friends and family for years to come. Her other love was working in her flower beds, where her outstanding efforts were awed by everyone.
Surviving are her devoted family, daughter Barbara in Auburn and son Gene (Diane) in Rochester, 6 grandchildren, Cheryl, Brad, Chris, Mike, Paula and Adam, 9 great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband Stanley and sisters Celia Podolak and Jane Kimball.
A calling hour will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Thursday August 16, 2018 in St. Hyacinth Church with her Mass of Christian burial immediately following. Burial will follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Nellie’s memory may be made to Hospice of the Finger Lakes, 1130 Corporate Drive, Auburn, NY 13021.
The family wishes to express their gratitude to the kind and caring staff of the 4th floor at The Commons.
