Obituary of Natalie Harthorn Noseworthy
Natalie Harthorn (Jones) Noseworthy was called to her Heavenly Home by her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on January 6, 2023, after a long, healthy and spiritual life. For years, she looked forward with joy to when she would be with her Lord and reunited with her beloved husband, sister, and daughter who predeceased her. She summarized the focus of her life in the simple phrase – “my faith, my family and friends, and all the wonders of God‘s creation.” She thanked God each day for His love, for her family, and for her sense of humor. She said that “God knows well what I have done and failed to do in my life.”
She was born to Sidney and Blanche (Bunnie) Jones on August 3, 1924, in Saint John, New Brunswick. In 1948 she married The Reverend Donald W Noseworthy and they enjoyed more than 52 years of a loving marriage. She was a tireless supporter of his ministry to Anglican (Episcopal) parishes in Quebec, Massachusetts, as well as St. Paul’s (Valley) Church in Saint John and Christ Church Cathedral in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
She was predeceased in death by her loving parents, her only sister Nancy Morrison (Jones) Wheatland, her beloved husband and her precious daughter Jane Harthorn Lind.
She is survived by cherished family including her son John (Pat), her precious grandchildren, Peter (Katie), Mark (Britt), Jamie (Lana) Whittaker, Heather Whittaker (Joe Taylor) and Kristin (Jeff) King and her precious great grandchildren Jack, Charlotte, Isabelle and Lou Noseworthy, Jacob, Maria and Rachel Whittaker and Isaiah King.
Her family gives thanks for the wonderful care, compassion and kindness of Brenda Lavigne, the Jones Girls caregivers and staff of the Chateau de Champlain.
