Noland, Niobe Jean


Niobe Noland, 84, of Farmers Branch, Texas, passed away March 10, 2015 after a short illness. Niobe was born in Delaware Bend in 1930 to JR and Mertie Dick. She had three siblings, Halle, Kydeen, and LaBoyte. Growing up, she loved to play the piano, had a favorite cat named VNose and a horse named Penny. She graduated from North Texas State College with a Bachelor of Business Administration in 1950. In 1952 she married Charles Noland, of Whitesboro, Texas. After meeting Charles, whose passion was flying, she learned to fly a plane herself so she’d be able to land in case of emergency. They were happily married for 49 years until his death in 2003.

Niobe enjoyed a career as an executive secretary until her children were born. Occasionally, she resumed her career in order to buy something special. One such purchase was a piano, which she enjoyed playing throughout her life. She was a lifelong devoted Christian, and had begun attending Christ United Methodist Church in 2004, where she made many friends in her Sunday School classes.

She is survived by her daughters Linda Noland, Beverly Schlee and son-in-law Michael Buil and many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
