It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that our family shares the peaceful passing of Joan Noble on Monday, September 20th, 2021. She leaves behind her soul mate Rick Noble. Beloved mom of Lisa (Bill) Young and Kari Huntington (Rick Laface). Loving grandmother of Breanna Young, Kelsey Huntington, Spencer Young and Michael Huntington. Cherished great grandmother of Kylie Huntington. Dear sister-in-law to Jack (Anita), Bob (Fay) and Randy (predeceased).
Her husband Rick, of 57 years of marriage, was her best friend and they did most things together.
Joan loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchild with all her heart. She enjoyed spending time with them, doing whatever they wanted to do.
Joan was game to try anything! She learned how to downhill ski at 36 so she could join her family on the hills and not be left behind at home. Even after suffering a broken femur, she retuned to skiing. Nothing held her back!
Joan loved to travel and was always on the go! Her favourite place was sailing on their 28-foot sailboat in the North channel where she and Rick spent every weekend and their holidays on the “Joanee Babee”. They travelled all over Lake Huron and Georgian Bay and shared many exciting adventures together and with friends.
Joan was an amazing piano player and taught piano lessons for many years. She enjoyed working in Cardiopulmonary at the Memorial Hospital. Joan had a very special way with people. She always had a welcoming and wonderful smile and kind words to share.
When she retired Joan spent winters with Rick in Florida, where she met many new people and made lasting friendships. She loved walking the beach with Rick and spending evenings playing cards or socializing. She will be missed, in Florida, for her generous gifts of dish cloths. She would spend countless hours making them and then give them out to her many friends.
Thank you for loving us the way you did. We know that you are always with us, and we miss you already. Rest peacefully. We love you!
At her request there will be no visitation or funeral service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society.
