Mae Noll, 90, Montandon

— MONTANDON — 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 July 4, 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 and was a 1942 graduate of Milton High School.  

She married Jack E. Noll on March 27, 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 1978.  

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 2½ 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; three daughters, Jane and husband, Robert Long, of Milton, Joan Moore, of Montandon, and Jean and husband, Fred Warren, of Lewisburg; 12 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; 14 great-grandchildren, Alexis, Marissa, Vanessa, Tyler, Tierra, Taliana, Piper,  J.
