October 11, 1937 – December 31, 2021
It is with great sadness we announce the unexpected yet peaceful passing of Mom, Grandma, Aunty Ramona (Mona) Noble on December 31st 2021. Mona is predeceased by her husband Robert (Bob) Noble, daughter In Law Jacqui Noble, niece Lavonne Schaddelee and brother Bob Mars, as well a number of InLaws and Outlaws and friends. She is survived by Her sister Donna (Jack) Schaddelee of Victoria, Sons Dan Noble of Port Alberni, and Paul Noble of Armstrong, B.C. and daughters Suzanne Johnson of Calgary, and Karen (Al) Webb of Port Alberni as well as 8 grandchildren, Stephanie, Christine, Rhiannon, Cole, Troy, Nick, Colin and Katherine and 7 great grandchildren.
Mona was born October 11, 1937 in Victoria, B.C, where she grew up and married Robert Noble. In 1967 Bob and Mona and their 4 children moved to Port Alberni where Bob started working on the Port Alberni City Fire Department.
Mona stayed home and raised their children getting involved in their many activities like Alberni Valley minor hockey, Arrowsmith figure skating club, Job’s Daughters, Special Olympics and the Alberni Valley Citizen Advocacy Society. For a short time Bob and Mona owned and ran Lil’ Echo Grocery Store on 10th Avenue, bosting the best penny candy counter in town. At the age of 50 Mona went to work for the Port Alberni Association for Community Living, loving the participants and treating them as family for the next 12 years. She was an avid knitter and crocheter at home or at her weekly gathering of her Stitch n’ Bitch ladies that went on for over 40 years. Mona loved a good game of cards or a juicy gossip session over a cup of coffee.
Mom recently moved into Heritage Place where she was able to maintain her independence yet enjoy the company of many new and old friends and participate in the social happenings while being well cared for by the staff and volunteers there.
Cremation has taken place and a family celebration of Mona’s life will take place in the summer of 2022.
Donations in Mona’s memory can be made to Port Alberni’s Special Olympics which was near and dear to her heart. Obituary
