Noha was born on September 29, 1959, in Lebanon and immigrated to the United States at the early age of seventeen. She settled in northeast Ohio, making her home in the Cleveland area. She became active in the community, spreading love and selflessness as an active parishioner of St. Maron Catholic Church and as a daycare owner of sixteen years. Her care and generosity impacted many families. She loved being a cosmetologist and was proud of her effort and achievements. Noha enjoyed maintaining a connection to her home and heritage, often sharing beautiful and delicious homemade Lebanese cuisine and lively dabke dancing with her loved ones. She often visited family in Lebanon and enjoyed traveling. Her love for her siblings, children, and grandchildren was boundless, and she thoroughly enjoyed sharing a birthday with her first grandchild, Ileana. Those who loved Noha remember her heart of gold, patience, and love. She had an unmatched passion for life, always maintaining a kind demeanor and sense of humor despite any challenges she met.
