Tribute & Message From The Family


Noris Wallsmith, of Bensalem, PA, but originally from Panama City, Panama, passed away peacefully with her family on June 18, 2022 at sunrise, at the age of 71. She was the beloved mother of Michael (Linda) Wallsmith, Donald Lee Wallsmith, Jr., and Julie Greenbaum. She was the beloved daughter of Bellina Esclopis and Jose Montenegro.

Noris found her calling helping others early in life. Her door was always open for friends and strangers to talk. Her calling to help others also carried into her role as a claims examiner, then later as a program coordinator at a food pantry and as a spiritual healer and teacher. Noris knew what it truly meant to live in the moment and loved to garden and dance. While going for walks with her daughter, she would often break out in dance and song. Her passion for life was contagious. Her depth of compassion had no boundaries, and she was truly selfless and courageous in everything that she did.

As a child, Noris was always fascinated by the sunrise and would often wake up in those early hours in her parents' house to watch it rise from her window. She passed in that same morning glow upon her face.

She will be deeply missed by all who have known her.

Friends and family are invited to Noris' Life Celebration on Thursday, June 30th from 6-8 PM at McGhee-Givnish Funeral Home - 690 Belmont Ave Southampton, PA 18966.
