June 23, 1946 to September 26, 2021
It is with profound sadness and much love that we announce the passing of Nora Lynn Whittemore at the age of 75 from Cancer.
Nora was born in Brooklyn, NY on June 23, 1946, to William and Helen Watts. Nora began her love of travel at an early age as her father was in the Navy and Nora spent time in Spain, Trinidad and other bases, with her family.
Nora worked for Northwest Orient Airlines, later to become Northwest Airlines for over 30+ years. It was this position that helped Nora continue to travel all over the world. Hong Kong, Peru, Barbados, London and Hawaii. Once Nora retired, she was able to continue her love of travel by going on cruises. Up the Amazon and thru her old stomping grounds of Trinidad and Tobago.
Over the years she became involved with several community groups. She was a supporter of the Lake Washington Schools Foundation. She had been a president of her HOA Community throughout the years and sat on the Sammamish Parks and Recreation Commission.
Nora is survived by her 3 children Adrienne Schulz, Kristine Whittemore and Frank Whittemore along with 3 grandchildren Katrina Schulz, Laura Whittemore and Ryan Schulz and her brother John Watts. She was preceded in death by her parents William and Helen Watts, husband Frank E Whittemore and grandson Christopher Whittemore.
Memorial Services will be held at the Cameray Cabana 24100 SE 4th Place Sammamish, WA on November 6th from 1 – 4pm. This will be a chance to get together and share wonderful memories of Nora. Nora will be laid to rest with her husband Frank E Whittemore at Tahoma National Cemetery in a private ceremony.
