Obituary: Noble, Marie Leona Juliette
NOBLE, Marie Leona Juliette
Our beautiful sweet Mother, Sister, Grand-mother, Aunt, and Friend was welcomed into Heaven and embrace by our Lord on June 20, 2012 following a two year battle with breast cancer. Julie was born February 2, 1934 at Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada to Alma Caron and Leon Henry Gagnon. She was the eldest of seven children. When the family lived in Quesnel, BC, she met and fell in love with a handsome southern gentleman Billy Noble. They were married in Quesnel on May 4, 1955. They stayed in Canada a few years and then moved back to the states, living in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and finally Spokane. Every four years, Julie and Bill would pack up the kids and camp their way north or south to visit family. They saw a lot of the western part of the US on these wonderful trips. Julie loved the US but was always excited to see Canada and her family. Family has always been important to Bill and Julie. In 1995, Julie became a US citizen. She was so proud and happy to do this. Through her life, Julie had worked as a bookkeeper, a receptionist, and a greeting card associate, but mostly she loved taking care of her family at home. Julie loved to camp. She was a talented, self-taught knitter, making beautiful sweaters and scarves. She liked crafts of all kinds but her passion was for quilting, cross stitch and crewel work. Julie was also an avid gardener and wonderful cook. Over the years, Julie has been involved with Women’s Aglow, Washington Quilter’s Assoc. as well as her quilting group, the Healing Rooms, and volunteering at Sacred Heart Hospital rocking babies in the nursery and in surgery waiting. She is survived by husband Bill Noble; children Cathy (Sam) Richart, Spokane, WA, Lorin (Shelly) Noble, Winnemucca, NV, Mike (Sheri) Noble, Nine Mile Falls, WA; grandchildren Matthew, Emily, Christine, Haley and Bryan; brother Richard Gagnon; sisters Vivian Steeves, Pauline (Daryll) McMechan and Doreen (Bob) Connauton. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Jannette Bangstead and brother Lenard Gagnon. A memorial service will be held at the Heritage Chapel on Saturday, July 28, 2012 at 2 pm. The family requests in lieu of flowers, those that wish may make a donation in Julie’s name to Susan G. Komen for the Cure at www.komen.org. The family also wishes to thank Dr. Stephan Anthony and his staff at Evergreen Hemotology and Oncology for their wonderful TLC and Living Waters Lawn Care for their generous faithfulness.
We will miss your bright eyes, sweet smile, and
your contagious laugh. We will miss you.
