    We send our deepest sympathy to the entire family of Barbara Noble. As Chuck and Karen’s high school friend I will remember the wonderful times we shared with your mother as she chaperoned school functions as well as the summers your family invited me to spend on your boat. She was always kind and thoughtful to me as a teenager and on into adulthood. May God Bless you Mrs. Noble.

    I met Barbara thru my relationship with her daughter, Karen. She was a lovely person and I always loved her visits to Alvin. It is with heavy heart I learned of her passing today. Thank you, Chuck, for passing this info to me. I will miss her being so upbeat and very knowledgeable on almost any subject. I will miss our e-mail notes. I know you will miss her too.
