Obituary Condolences

Diane Joyce Agate, a prominent nurse practitioner with the VA, died at home Friday evening at 6:30, her family and friends surrounding her bedside. She was 69 years old. Diagnosed 16 months ago with ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease, she went into the hospital Saturday, Aug. 8, with severe discomfort. She was released Wednesday afternoon and came home to a hospice setting. Disarmingly self-effacing, family and friends concurred that Ms. Agate never accepted the wide horizons of her unyielding grasp of all matters medical, both pragmatic and arcane, of her beauty, of her physical and mental capacities. Born Oct. 4, 1945, to Betty and Sanford Agate, she attended public school and Hebrew school in her formative years. For the past 32 years, Ms. Agate has been a member of the Chabad of the Valley synagogue, Burbank Boulevard, Tarzana. Ms. Agate is survived by her husband, Ari L. Noonan, and her four children, Lauren of West Hollywood, Nora of Westwood, Jamie of Jerusalem, and Sanda of Portland, OR, six grandchildren - Gabriel Kahlil Villar, Maya Nechama Stein, Noam Yisroel Stein, Shalom Reuven Stein, Eliora Malka Stein, and Samuel D. Hibbard - her brother Jeff of Appleton, WI, Leonard Stein, the father of her children, and Lizzy, her former sister-in-law.
