We are saddened to announce that our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Aunt, Widad, fell asleep with the Lord following a very brief but courageous battle with cancer. Left to cherish her memory are her two sons, Dr. Sarmad AbdulNoor (Ban Mansour) and Silwan AbdulNoor (Nagham Kamal)–semicolon– two daughters, Dr. Sahar AbdulNoor (Burhan AbdulNoor) and Sura AbdulNoor (Sam George)–semicolon– nine grandchildren, Ragheed, Eyad, Raed, Rula, Ammar, Tia, Andrew, Matthew, Emma and “One” on the way–semicolon– one brother, Gharib Hana as well as many nieces and nephews.
Widad was predeceased by her husband Sami AbdulNoor in 2000 and two brothers.
To her family, she was the most precious of all, showering her children and grandchildren with unconditional love. We are filled with memories of the sound of her laugh, the smile on her angelic face, her calming words and blessings, stories and so many more beautiful things which we will treasure forever–semicolon– nothing can take that away from us.
“Nana, you will be alive within, and through, every one of us forever. We will always carry you in our hearts, and you will always have a piece of us with you. Watch over us, until we meet again, one day. We will miss you. Love forever.”
