Anina Biale Memorial Fund

Anina James Biale went by “Noni” in her sixteen months of life. She bubbled over with happiness, smiles, curiosity, and love. By age six months, she already knew how to give hugs. Noni died from a choking accident on August 18, 2019.

JFCS East Bay grieves with Noni’s family, holding in our hearts her grandmother Rachel, a current board member, and David, a former board president. We are honored to fulfill the Biale family’s request to have donations made in Noni’s memory be directed toward helping East Bay kids in need, particularly those who are low-income and/or in immigrant families.

Noni was the younger daughter of Noam Biale & Margaret Graham; the little sister of Rosemary; and the granddaughter of Rachel & David Biale and Mimi & Jim Graham.

Rosemary’s innocent wisdom will guide the family out of this valley of darkness. She said simply “We don’t have Noni anymore.” Friends’ love will hold them up.
