Noreen Kokoruda Death, Obituary – We saddened to tell you today of the demise of Noreen Kokoruda, who was a member of the Madison Board of Selectmen and a former representative for the state of Massachusetts. I am sorry to have to inform you of her passing. It is with the utmost regret that I have to proceed in this manner. Noreen was an ardent public servant who had a profound love for Madison, and she worked for the city in a number of positions over the period of about 40 years to serve the people of Madison in a variety of capacities.
She was a public servant who will be much missed. She had only a few days left to live when she passed away, but she would have reached the end of her life soon after. To commemorate and honor the legacy that she leaves behind, which includes her compassion for others, dedication to service, and loyalty to her family and friends, we can all join together as a community. This is something that everyone of us may impart to the others and share with them. During this time of trial, her family is in our thoughts and prayers.
We are thinking and praying for them. I pray that God would bless each of you. We ask that you please accept our most sincere condolences. I have given the order that all flags at Madison town facilities should be lowered to half-staff beginning at noon today, December 22nd, and should remain lowered until sunset on the date of interment, which has not been decided upon at this time. These flags should remain at this position until the interment takes place, which has not been decided upon at this time. I would be honored if you would join me in paying tribute to her memory in this way as it is a sign of respect for the legacy that she has left behind. I am sorry for the loss that has been inflicted upon you.
