Eunice Esther Wilson, death notice; published in The San Diego Union Tribune on Dec. 15, 2002; https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/sandiegouniontribune/obituary.aspx?n=eunice-esther-wilson&pid=1236486: “Eunice Esther Wilson ‘Noni’, age 88, died December 8, 2002, at Island Health and Rehabilitation on Bainbridge Island. She was born April 28, 1914, in Vancouver, BC, daughter of Jack and Mary Sneath Whalen. Following graduation from high school in 1932, Noni worked for the Hudson ‘ s Bay Co. and later for American Can Co., both in Vancouver. In 1947 she moved to Southern California and continued her career at Chevron Research in La Habra. She retired after 25 years as a research associate, and moved to San Diego in the mid-1980s to be close to her beloved niece, Linda Christian. In 2000, she moved to Bainbridge Island to be close to her son, Paul Heys and daughter-in-law Linda. Noni’s love of the water and boats was passed on to her grandsons, Michael and Graeme, who both became captains and are presently cruising the waters of the world. Of her many interests, poetry ranked at the top throughout her life. Even at age 88, she could recite page after page of the great poets. At her request, there will be no services.”
