VIRGINIA NOGUERE


Virginia Noguere, 102, a resident of Clearwater, Florida, for 53 years, died on November 24, 2023, in Big Canoe, Georgia. Born in Brooklyn in 1921 to John and Nellie Thompson Braun, she graduated from Franklin K. Lane High School at 15 and went to work as a secretary to help support her family. At 16 she learned the art of dressmaking in night school, leading to a lifetime of beautiful creations. In 1943 she married Eugene Noguere and started a family. They moved to Clearwater in 1961. Virginia worked in the personnel department of the Pinellas County School Board for 27 years, admired for her keen skills and kind nature. In retirement she practiced Taoist Tai Chi and volunteered at the Clearwater Public Library. At 93 she relocated to Alpharetta, Georgia, to be near her daughter Christine Marie Noguere and son-in-law Phil Pope, who cared for her devotedly. They survive her, as do her loving children Philip Noguere and his wife, Debbie Daniels; Suzanne Noguere and her husband, Henry Grinberg; and Robert Noguere and his wife, Jaye Jaye Noguere. Virginia was predeceased by her sister, Alice Marsala, and her brothers, Robert T. Braun and John R. Braun. May her memory be a blessing, as was her life.
