Tragic news to report today.

A memorial service has been planned for Concord High School Senior Noura Daiess, who passed away on January 3rd during a snowmobile accident in New York.

The following information is from the Daiess family:

Our beloved angel, Noura was taken from us in an ATV (snowmobile) accident this past Friday, January 3rd, in upstate New York while on vacation with family. While it is with immense sorrow that we inform our loved ones of this great tragedy, it is with open arms that we welcome all to celebrate her beautiful life.

The service will be held in St. Bonaventure’s Church in Concord, CA at 2 p.m. this Thursday, January 9th 2014. We would like for this to be a space of love, respect and remembrance of our sister, daughter and friend. We are extending this invitation to all members of the Concord High School community, as well as all others simply wanting to pay tribute to her life.

We would be grateful for your attendance as our strength is born from being surrounded by support and love in this troubling time.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers,

The Daiess Family

As a Concord High grad, it reminds of the friends I lost in high school.

Gone too soon…..

Jami and family my heart is going out to you and the family during this extremely difficult time. I have been blessed to watch Noura grow up from a cute lil 8 year old to the beautiful young woman she had become. It is with a heavy heart that when Reanna called me to me the news…our love thoughts and prayers to you from our family.

What a tragic ending of life. A beautiful young lady. May she R.I.P.

Such sad news…my daughter goes to Concord High, and although knew Noura only a little, was quick to describe her as a good student, well liked and very sweet. She will be missed by her friends and teachers at CHS. May God bless her and her loving family.

I am one grade older than Noura and I didn’t ever talk to her, but I remember seeing her around campus since I was friends with some of her friends. That’s so sad though to think of all the things we do in life that she never experienced, like marriage or being self-dependent. R.I.P Noura. Concord High will definitely be different without you. Second CHS student to pass in the past year!

Mayor, I am a former teacher of Noura’s and would like to send my condolences to the family. Also, wondering if donations can be made to a preferred organization? I won’t be able to be at the memorial in person but my heart will be there. If you have any information regarding the above will you please post. Thank you.

My heart goes out to Noura’s family. I remember her from Westwood such a sweet beautiful girl.
