Kathleen Noonan moved to Flagstaff with her life long partner, wife, best friend, Trish Rensink, in 2001. Kathleen truly loved the sunshine, the forests, the history, the culture, the downtown, the people, and all the friendships she made. From the first winter here, Kathleen fell in love with the downtown library. It became her sanctuary, her refuge, her bank of knowledge, inspiration, and escape. Kathleen’s motto for living was, “be kind, love unconditionally, and when the sun shines, go on a picnic…the housework will wait.”
Donations in Kathleen's memory will support the Fund for the Flagstaff Public Library, a component fund of the Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff.
