The owner of the famous Nora Store, Mary Nora Mar or famously known as Nora was cremated at Dignified Cremations Limited on Tuesday, June 29.

Nora was 93 years-old when she passed away on Wednesday, June 23 in Suva.

She lived on the fourth floor of her building at 8 Raojibhai Patel St, Suva.

It is understood that Nora and her late husband Mar Yuen Fong established their general store in Nabena, Naitasiri in the 1950s and they also served the people of Naitasiri.

Later the couple moved to Marks’ Lane, now renamed Raojibhai Patel Street, Suva in mid 1960s to setup a general merchants store selling household items such as beddings, stoves, materials etc.

After her husband passed on, it is understood that Nora continued operating their business before retiring more than two decades ago.

Now a close relative is trading as Bian Xin Investment Co Ltd from the original Nora Store at 8 Raojibhai Patel St, Suva.
