Winona J. Krom

Winona “Noni” Jane Krom, 83, of Lansing, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 16, 2021. Born in Ithaca on May 24, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Clarence and Yvonne (Thomas) Krom. Noni retired in 2002 after 22 years with Therm, Inc. in Ithaca. During her time there as an International Customer Service Representative, she traveled frequently and fondly remembered her time in Europe.

For over 60 years, Noni was a member of the Lansing Lions Club, which was very important to her. She also taught baton in the 1970s, was a swim instructor at Lansing Central School District for over two years, and coached cheerleading for 11 years. At the school district, she also instructed teachers how to use A/V equipment. At her home, she operated a ceramic studio and gift shop.

Noni is survived by her children, Robert (LauraLee) Hoaglin, Jr. of Lakeville, MN, Thomas Hoaglin of Lansing, NY, Michael (Amy) Hoaglin of McLean, NY, and Yvonne (Grady) Whittenburg of Lansing, NY; seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and a niece and nephew. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Geraldine Pirro, and daughter-in-law, Julie Hoaglin.

A period of visitation will be held on Saturday, January 29, 2022, from 11:30 a.m. to noon at Lansing United Methodist Church, 32 Brickyard Road, Lansing. A memorial service will begin at 12:15 p.m. at the church and will be live streamed on the church's YouTube Channel. Interment will be private in North Lansing Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in Noni’s name to the Lansing Lions Club, PO Box 82, Lansing, NY 14882.

My deepest sympathies to Noni's family. I was her Mary Kay consultant for the last 10 years or so. We were introduced through her daughter-in-law, Julie. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Noni and getting to know her more with each delivery. I enjoyed seeing her Christmas ornament collection and hearing the stories of where they came from. Communicating became harder and harder the last couple years as her health declined, and I moved out of state. I will miss her. It was a pleasure to know her. Please know you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Sending our condolences to Noni's family. Noni was an amazing friend and community member. We know that Sandy was there to greet you as you entered those pearly gates...

My father, Bill "Hoppy" Hoppenrath worked with Noni at Therm until his retirement. He thought the world of her and always spoke so positively about her. She was so very kind to him and kept in touch for many years.
Very sorry for your loss.

Noni you will always hold a special place in my heart. First, as baton teacher, attending competitions and marching in all the parades.
Second, as a cheerleader and our coach, reuniting and cheering at the first LHS Alumni Basketball game. Passing out mittens and gloves for the Lansing Lion's Cub at RC Buckley Elementary. Lastly at Ceramic classes on Drake Road. You'll be truly missed 💙💛.
With My Deepest Sympathy
