NOLAN, Adele Helen (nee Chew)
August 18, 1934 – April 19, 2019

Passed away peacefully on Friday, April 19, 2019 at Christie Oaks Care Home in Acton, at the age of 84. A proud Acton resident since birth, Adele was born on Aug. 18, 1934 to the late Beatrice (Mellon) and Harry Chew. She was predeceased by her husband Lawrence Nolan. Faithful sister to Frances Marcoux, Jacqueline Nolan, and the late Patricia Macpherson. Adele is survived by devoted son Paul Nolan, grandsons Liam Nolan and Daniel Nolan, daughter-in-law Tracey Howell Nolan, and step-granddaughter Emily Kuch. She was a loving aunt to Kathleen Nolan, Michael (Lynne) Marcoux, Mary Frances (Dugald) Dick, Kevin (Susan) Marcoux, David Marcoux, Rand Macpherson, the late Cindy (Carl) Smit, Pam (Wolfgang) Fisher, and Andrea (John) Bergman.

Adele worked diligently at numerous jobs over the years, some concurrently. From Beardmore & Co. to the Olde Hide House, her resume reflected her home town’s history of industry. She contributed her skills at Mason Knitting, Superior Glove Works, and finally at Georgetown Wal-Mart, where her warmth and good humour made her a most popular customer-greeter.

The family will receive friends at the MacKinnon Family Funeral Home,
55 Mill St. E., Acton on Friday April 26, 2019 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph Patron of Canada Parish, 64 Church St. E., Acton on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 11a.m.
Cremation has taken place.

If desired, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

Dear Paul and family,
Some people come into your life for a reason. Your mom was one of them, I remember Adele from my childhood in Acton. Such a warm, caring person to meet on the street or in a store. Her pride in you was evident. Take comfort in knowing that others share in your sorrow.
Susan Allan Sheehan and all the family ..... Mary Allan, Doug, Janet and Nancy

My sincere condolences to the Nolan family. It was a pleasure to know and work with Adele at Wal-mart. She was a joy and made everyone's day brighter with her humour.

Paul and family, I am so sorry to hear of Adele's passing but I am sure she is now enjoying freedom like never before.
I have known your Mom and Dad for so many years and always enjoyed their company. I am sure you all have some fond memories of them.
I never met Adele that she didn't make me smile.
God bless you all.
Jackie Higgins and Wayne DeForest
