Mae Armstrong Noll, 90, of Montandon was serenaded by
angels into the loving arms of her beloved Lord and Savior on Sunday, July
6, 2014, surrounded by her family at her home, as her loving, compassionate
Lord knew that she had grown weary.
She was born on July 4th, 1924, in Milton, the third
child of the late David W. and Mary (Shoemaker) Armstrong. She grew up on a
farm in the New Columbia area. Mae was a 1942 graduate of Milton High
School. She married Jack E. Noll on March 27th 1944, two days before he
left to spend 22 months in the Pacific during World War II. Mae and Jack
made their home in Montandon where they raised their five children in a home
built by Jack's father, Ernest. They celebrated 58 years of marriage before
his Home going on June 15, 2002.
She was employed at American Home Foods from 1965 until
Mae was a former active member of the Montandon
Methodist Church where she served as a choir member and also taught the
Ladies Sunday School Class. Mae was also a Small Group Bible Study leader
while attending Crossroads Church of the Nazarene in Montandon and had
attended New Hope Lutheran Brethren Church in Lewisburg. She enjoyed her
involvement in the Lewisburg Christian Women’s Club and especially enjoyed
leading Friendship Bible Coffees during that time. Mae thrived with her role
as a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
A monumental change came into Mae’s life in 1964 when
she came to know Jesus as her personal Savior through listening to WPGM
Radio Station. This love for her Lord and Savior spilled out beautifully
into an even greater love and joy for her family whom she adored. Her
family was always comforted in knowing she was praying for them and they
will miss her and those heartfelt prayers immensely. She had a huge heart of
hospitality filling her table with her children and their children, and
always having enough ready for one more. Holiday gatherings with her family
were one of the greatest joys of her life.
Mae’s children would like to deeply thank her
caregivers for the last 2 1/2 years; Brenda, Debbie, Emily, Gloria, Johanna,
Lavina, Lena, Nancy and Wanda, knowing that without their kindness,
compassion and loving care they may not have had the blessing of their
mother as long as they did. They also would like to thank Evangelical
Hospice for the excellent care they provided during this last month.
She is survived by two sons; James and wife, Bonnie, of
Levittown and Joseph and wife Linda of Vicksburg and three daughters; Jane
and husband Robert Long of Milton, Joan Moore of Montandon, and Jean and
husband, Fred Warren of Lewisburg. She is also survived by twelve
grandchildren; Jennifer, Jacqueline, Jesse and wife Rachael, Janine and
husband Mike; Jeremiah and wife Joanne, Joseph, Nicole, Nichelle, Jason and
wife Amy, Justin and wife Gretchen, Jeremy and wife Amy, Joshua and wife
Julie. Also surviving are 14 great grandchildren; Alexis, Marissa,
Vanessa, Tyler, Tierra, Taliana, Piper, J. Caleb , Colton, Quenton, Brayden,
Cody , Jack and Ava and two step great grandsons, William and Macoy. She is
also survived by two sisters, Nellie Fulmer and Edith Snyder of Turbotville.
Mae was preceded in death by one brother, David W. Armstrong, Jr. and one
sister, Angeline M. Ranck .
Relatives and friends will be received Saturday, July
12, 2014 from 9:30 AM until 11:15 AM at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship 205
Bull Run Crossing Road, Lewisburg followed by a Celebration of Mae’s Life to
