Noreen A. Ginnane, age 80, died peacefully on April 22, 2017 in Greenwood, Indiana. Born December 23, 1936 in Yonkers, NY, she was the youngest daughter of the late Patrick and Nora Ginnane (Mangan) from County Clare, Ireland. She was predeceased by her brothers, Joseph, Jackie, and Raymond, and her sisters, Margaret Sheridan, Angela Harrington, Clare Walker and Joan Gibson. Noreen is survived by her brother, John Spencer, former mayor of Yonkers, as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Noreen graduated from Sacred Heart High School in 1954. Following a long career as an administrative assistant in real estate management for Cushman and Wakefield in New York City, she retired in 1999. Noreen dedicated her life to her family. She raised her brother, "Johnny," and she was the most loyal, loving, and supportive sister and aunt that anyone could ask for. We are all blessed to have had Noreen in our lives, and she will be sorely missed.
Always having Yonkers in her heart, Noreen will be returning home to Yonkers as her final resting place. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Whalen & Ball Funeral Home, 168 Park Avenue. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Church, 110 Shonnard Place, at 11 a.m. on Thursday, followed by internment at St. Joseph's Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation, 1787 Route 6, Carmel, NY 10512 (
