"Sugar" (as she was known to just about everyone) passed away suddenly at the age of 91 at her daughter and son-in-law's home in Avondale, Ariz., on Oct. 13.
Sugar was born Feb. 20, 1930, to the late Joe and Mary Sabella in Frackville. She was married to William "Billy," "Herby" Noga, who preceded her in death in 1971.
Sugar is survived by her only "biological" daughter, Denise and her husband, Joe Johnson, who have lived in many states through their married life, but have resided in Arizona for about the last 25 years. Also surviving are three stepgrandchildren; five great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; along with nieces, nephews and cousins.
Sugar's house was where all Denise's friends hung out, thereby having many "non-biological" kids. She was always there for you to share what was on your mind. When Denise was asked what it was like to be an only child, her reply would be, "I don't know, I'm never alone." That's who Sugar was. If you asked her something, prepare yourself because it may not be the answer you were looking for.
Sugar was very special, fun and a wonderful lady who will be tremendously missed.
Finally, as she would say, "toot-a-loo," until we meet again.
A blessing service and interment will be held at 11 a.m. Dec. 14 in Calvary Cemetery Chapel, 49 S. Hunter Highway, Drums.
Arrangements are entrusted to Adonizio Funeral Home LLC, 251 William St., Pittston.
