Margaret Noble, age 78, died with family by her bedside on May 16, 2016 at her home in Hillsborough, NC. She was the daughter of Eugene and Margaret Casey of Granby, Connecticut.
Margaret was a dedicated educator, receiving her Bachelor’s Degree at St. Joseph’s University in Hartford, CT and then her Master’s Degree at Southern Connecticut University. Serving the U.S. Department of Defense for 20 years, she had the opportunity to teach both the children of armed services members as well as soldiers, and live with her beloved family in Panama, Turkey, Puerto Rico and South Korea. After Margaret and her husband George made their home in Hillsborough, she spent her last years committed to teaching English as a second language to elementary students within Orange County. Margaret loved to travel the world with her family, especially the Caribbean and Europe. She was famous for being able to pack for a two week trip in a single carryon. As an avid runner, she had acquired an impressive trophy collection and clocked countless miles. She was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church in Hillsborough where she served as a Eucharistic Minister.
Survivors include her devoted husband of 52 years, George P. Noble III; loving sons, Thomas Noble (Barbara) of Massachusetts and Daniel Noble (Dorothy) of Maryland; brothers, Joseph Casey of Florida and Brian Casey (deceased); sisters, Maureen DiPietro of Connecticut and Janice Bazyk of Florida; grandchildren, Gabriel, Samuel, Ian, Katherine, and Emily Noble and many nieces and nephews from coast to coast.
