Noni Buchanan Roybal Reiman passed away April 7, 2014 peacefully at her home in West Seattle with her husband at her side.

She was born March 11, 1962.

Noni embraced all there was to take from life. She was known as a woman that loved humanity, appreciated the fun of life, was playful and energetic, giving of herself, dramatic; she possessed a keen sense of humor and a take-no-prisoners kind of intelligence. She had a noble grace and an ability to command a presence with an ease that defies explanation. She will be remembered and missed by an enormous circle of family, friends and colleagues.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Ellie and father, Richard, and is returned to them now. She is survived by her husband, Dave Reiman; her brother, Richard Buchanan; her niece whom she adored, Sofie; Rick’s wife Nancy, and two step daughters whom she cherished, Carissa and Maddy Reiman.

There will not be a service, as Noni’s wish of celebrating her life was fulfilled by holding living memorials over the past 10 months with her loving friends and family.

Donations in lieu of flowers may be sent to Treehouse of Seattle, an organization helping foster children: 2100 24th Avenue S., Suite 200 Seattle, WA 98144.
