Noreen Theresa (Mooney) Dominguez, 62, passed away on September 5th 2021 at her home in Frisco, Colorado. She was born on February 27th, 1959 in Patterson, NJ, to Claire and John J. Mooney, their third child and second daughter. She will be dearly missed.
Noreen attended Paramus Catholic Regional High School and was a graduate of Ramapo High School. She then graduated from New England College, and studied geochemistry at the University of New Hampshire, where she met her first husband, Chris Jahrling. Noreen then dedicated herself to raising a family. Noreen shared a love of the outdoors and recreation with her family.
Noreen was a life-long skier. She was a member of the North Jersey Whiz Skiers, of which her father was a founding member. With her second husband, Richard Anthony Dominguez, she learned to scuba dive and shared her love of skiing. After Richard's passing, Noreen earned a degree in sonography at Bergen Community College and worked as a sonographer before moving to Frisco Colorado. Noreen pursued many passions through her love of the great outdoors: cycling, skiing, hiking, traveling, and painting. She was active in the Summit County Social and Adventure Club through Meetup, and was also involved in other cycling groups.
She will be remembered fondly for her biscotti, her effervescence, her shopping habits, and her determination.
