Nell Page Noble, 98, native of Adair County, KY

Mildred Nell Page Noble, 98, passed away at her home on February 10, 2019. She was born on August 24, 1920, in Cane Valley, Adair County, Kentucky to the late Roger and Estelle Page. Nell's mother would relate the story that Nell was born on "the hottest day God ever made."

The funeral will be at 2pmET Thursday, February 14, 2019 at Fern Creek Funeral Home, 5406 Bardstown Road, Louisville, KY. Visitation will take place before the time of the service. There will be no graveside service.

She was a TV Aide and the guidance counselor's secretary at Fern Creek High School, a charter member of the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society, a member of Middletown Christian Church, the John Marshall Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Fern Creek Woman's Club.

The love and comfort of many of her friends and family surrounded Nell at her passing. The family especially would like to thank the special ladies who cared for Nell: Carol Muncy, Cindy Erickson, Marty Kraft, and Shannon Erickson. Special love is sent to Nell's Grand Daughter-in-Law, Lt. Col. Beth Noble, MD USAF (Ret) and Grandson, Matthew Noble MD, for their around the clock care during Nells' final hours.

For almost sixty years, Nell enjoyed the friendship and support of all her Fern Creek neighbors, especially Bill and Bettye Anderson and their families.

Nell was preceded in death by her loving husband of 56 years, Leonard M. Noble; her youngest son, David M. Noble, who passed away in 2017; two brothers, William Page and James Page; and three sisters, Emma Watson, Thelma Feese and Christine Cheatham.

Nell is survived by sons, Douglas Noble (Helene) and Dr. Ryan Noble (Linda); Grandchildren, Matthew Noble (Beth), Amy Crowe (Gary), Cate Ward (Greg), and Ross Noble (Karen); and Great-Grandchildren, Liam Noble, Martha Noble, Abi Crowe, Holly Crowe, and Libby Ward. There are also six nieces and one nephew who will miss their Aunt Nell.

The family asks that expressions of sympathy take the form of support to Middletown Christian Church, 500 Watterson Trail, Louisville, KY 40243.
