<div itemprop="description">Passed away peacefully at home at the age of 89 on April 22, 2017, surrounded by loved ones. <br> <br>Noella was predeceased by her husband, Donald Thomas Douglas and her son, Donald Alexander as well as her brothers and sisters, Beatrice, Aldoria, Theophile, Florida, Mary, Bertha, Hector, Henry, Paul, Rolly and Alexander. She leaves to mourn her daughters, Darlene (Frank), Esabelle (Mel) and Kathy (Jerry) and son, Tom (Brenda) and her dearly loved grandchildren, Carole (Terry), Sandra (Keith), Chantal (Ben), Amanda (Jean-François), Cynthia (Daniel), Robin, Kim (Jason), Ryan and Tyler as well as thirteen great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. <br> <br>An exceptional, caring person, Noella dedicated her life to improving the quality of lives of people with intellectual challenges by working tirelessly to provide them with opportunities for recreation including a coffee shop where they could mingle with teenage volunteers, a summer camp, a theatre troupe and many other activities in which they could participate. In 1978 she founded the Quebec Special Olympics and continued her involvement with that organization to the end of her days. She was a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of her work with Special Olympics. She was also a long-time volunteer with Girl Guides of Canada. <br> <br>Should you wish, contributions to the Quebec Special Olympics would be appreciated. Flowers would also be welcome. <br> <br>Her ashes will be buried at Mount Royal Cemetery next to her husband where they will rest together in peace. <br> <br></div>
