Nonie was born in Durango, Colorado, on February 16, 1929. She grew up in Durango and Grand Junction, moving to Denver at the age of 16.

Nonie is survived by Walt and Michelle, seven of her eight grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren.

After her children were grown, Nonie completed her Masters Degree in Social Work, and was the founding social worker and manager of LDS Hospital's Pain Clinic. She also published two books: Habit Control Workbook, and Older and Wiser. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Nonie served as a practicing psychotherapist in Grand Junction and Utah.

She and her husband, Walt, also had a music studio, where she taught piano and violin. Nonie had a wonderful sense of humor and will always be remembered for her positive influence that touched many lives.
