NORTH MITCHELL HEIGHTS, W.Va. — Ralph Noe, 84, of North Mitchell Heights, went home to be with his Lord and loving wife Jeanette, Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at Charleston Area Medical Center.
Born April 19, 1929, he was a son of the late Frank and Maude Noe of Orville. He was raised in Stollings where he met and married the love of his life, Jeanette Evans. They were married 58 years when the Lord took her home. Both attended Stollings Grade, Logan Junior and Senior High School. Ralph was an U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War and worked for Old Imperial Dairy, Willis Parking Service Station, Valley Bell Dairy, and Unisource, from which he retired, and, after retirement, Quality Restaurant Paper.
Ralph was a lifelong member of The First Christian Church of Stollings. A born again Christian since July 25, 1950, he served as a Sunday School Superintendent for many years, teacher of the Gleaners class, co-treasurer, member of the choir (he truly loved singing for the Lord), served on the Church Board and was a Trustee. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge. Ralph lost his loving wife, Jeanette, July 28, 2008, which truly broke his heart. We know he is rejoicing with her once again and praising their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Also preceding him in death was one son Randy Lee Noe; one daughter, Karen Noe Raines, and one sister and brother-in-law, Jim and Ethel Mills.
