December 28, 1986 – October 1, 2022
It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Alyssa Marie Noonan at St. Paul’s Hospital on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at the age of 35. She was surrounded by her loving husband Steve, family, and her dog Phoenix.
Alyssa was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to John and Donalda Gerstmar and was the second youngest of five children. She met the love of her life, her husband Steve, in 2003 and they were married in 2010. She was an integral part of a strong, closely knit family chain and the `fun’ Auntie to eight nieces and nephews.
Alyssa had a tremendous love and passion for life. Her grace and strength of character were hallmarks of her personality, and she was a loyal and caring friend to many. An accomplished and passionate Equestrian, she also loved sailing, the ocean, animals, travelling, online gaming (in the last couple of years) and most notably she had a fierce love for family and friends. Alyssa attended the University of Saskatchewan and completed her Bachelors of Kinesiology in 2009. She worked as an Accommodations Consultant for the Saskatchewan Health Authority and her compassion for others was demonstrated through her dedicated efforts to support the employees she worked with.
Alyssa is survived and lovingly remembered by:
Her husband, Steve Noonan; parents, John and Donalda Gerstmar; brother, Ryan Gerstmar (Denise, Mykah, Magnus); sisters, Shannon Forrester (Rob, Josh, Nate), Heather Toews (Adam, John, Maia), Ashley Gardner (Grant, Kate, Isla); grandparents, Cliff and Betty MacDonald; and lots of extended family and friends.
She was predeceased by her grandparents, Frank and Lorraine Gerstmar.
A special thanks for the exceptional care and professionalism provided by the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (Dr. Sami), various Royal University Hospital inpatient units and the St. Paul’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit.
A celebration of Alyssa’s life will be held Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at 1pm at the Saskatoon Inn, located at 2002 Airport Dr, Saskatoon. All are welcome.
