Born on November 23, 1926, Noonie's journey through life was filled with love, joy, and an unwavering dedication to her family and community.

Noonie was a shining example of the power of education. After earning her Bachelor's degree in education, she embarked on a career that touched the lives of countless students. 

Beyond her professional accomplishments, Noonie was adored as a lovable wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to all. Her warm and compassionate nature had an extraordinary ability to bring people together. Whether it was her infectious laughter or her genuine interest in others' well-being, Noonie had a magnetic presence that made everyone feel cherished and valued.

In her free time, Noonie indulged in various hobbies and interests that brought her immense joy. She had a natural flair for culinary arts and took great pleasure in cooking delicious meals for her loved ones. The fragrance of roses held a special place in Noonie's heart, as she spent countless hours tending to her exquisite garden filled with vibrant blooms. The act of nurturing these flowers mirrored the care and tenderness she showed to everyone who crossed her path.

Baking was another passion that allowed Noonie to express her creativity and love. The aroma of freshly baked treats often wafted through her home during family gatherings or festive holidays when loved ones gathered around to savor the delectable delights she prepared with so much affection.

As the Chairman of the Cleanest City Committee, Noonie worked tirelessly to create a more beautiful and sustainable environment for future generations. Her dedication earned her the admiration and respect of the entire community.

With an innate eye for beauty, Noonie's talents extended beyond gardening. She became a Master Flower Judge, using her knowledge to evaluate and appreciate the artistry present in floral arrangements. Additionally, she played an active role in the Make America Beautiful Organization, working towards enhancing the aesthetic appeal of public spaces.
