Norah Muriel Mcnair

March 23, 1927 - March 22, 2017


Norah Muriel McNair died peacefully on her mother’s birthday. She was one day shy of 90 and would have been pleased to avoid the fuss of a celebration. Norah moved to Stillwater from Vancouver in 1949 to teach, married Almer McNair two years later and, with her husband, created a beautiful family home in Douglas Bay. Always a teacher at heart, Norah was a role model and mentor to many, including the friends of her children who stayed connected and close to her. Most Saturday mornings her friends would drop by for a chat, some advice, or to discuss the latest opera news while she baked cookies, pies and bread for the week. Her baking was a treat many people enjoyed, especially her cinnamon buns, brownies and cream puffs. Norah loved her house and garden and was often seen moving flowers, shrubs and trees on the property to get the right plant in the right place. She would rearrange the living room furniture as well, to catch the best view and to confuse her husband. Norah’s house and garden were filled with her favourite colour: royal blue. She was seldom seen wearing a different colour and she loved shopping for anything in blue. Norah was a compassionate and “true-blue” friend. She loved her family and her friends’ families. Her grandchildren Alexi and Daniel were very special to her and she was grateful for the time she spent with her great-granddaughter Elizabeth. Norah’s children Norah-Lee, Rod and Cam, her son-in-law Phil and daughter-in-law Maria would like to thank Doctor Dohm and the staff of Powell River General Hospital for the wonderful care and kindness they gave to their mother. A celebration of Norah’s life will be held in the summer. In lieu of flowers, donations to BC SPCA would be appreciated
