Diana Stiteler Noone, 76 of Beaumont, passed away Saturday February 20, 2021. She was born March 26, 1944, in Beaumont, Texas to Frances Stiteler and Leroy Stiteler.

She lived in Beaumont all her life, where she received her early education. She graduated from South Park High School in 1962. She then received her Bachelor’s degree in education. She began her teaching career at South Park High School. She taught at several different schools in the BISD area. She obtained her Master’s degree from Lamar University in 1993. She completed her teaching career with over 35 years at Forest Park/West Brook High School.

Diana put her daughters first and foremost in her life. She was the most amazing mother anyone could be blessed with. Once she started having grandchildren, they became her precious angels and were quickly moved to the top of the ranks. Even though her heart was dedicated to her immediate family, there were a few students that might have out ranked her daughters. She took in more kids that were friends and/or students as her own. There were many nights that she would get up no matter the time, to prepare a breakfast feast for whoever was in need. After teaching all day, she would then come home and tutor students that needed that extra push.

Once she became a grandmother, it then shifted to football games, dancing, cheerleading, and marching bands. If her grandchildren had an event, she was there.

As her children were growing up, she was active in various groups. As a member of the Lioness Club, she supported her husband in Lions Club events. She served with Amelia 4H, CampFire girls, Blue Birds, and FFA chapters at West Brook, BCP and Central High Schools.

Additionally, she was an amazing Mary Kay Consultant. She excelled quickly with her position within the company. She spent countless hours helping her best friend, Ruth DeLeon make cheerleader uniforms for local high schools.

Upon retiring from BISD in 2011, Diana enjoyed playing Bunco, Bridge & Mahjong with various groups in the area. She was a member of the St. Andrews Knit Witts group. She served in various positions in her church, her favorite being Vacation Bible School.

She is preceded in death by her mother Frances Rennick Jones, her fathers Thomas Pruett Jones, Sr. and Leroy Stiteler, her brothers Thomas Pruett Jones, Jr. and Lawrence Lavelle Jones, her sister Kathryn Duperier, her sons-In-law Mike Ferguson, Sr. and Herb Ballance, III.

She is survived by her daughters, Liz Ferguson, Monika Ballance and Piper Roberts, her son-in-law Keith Roberts, her sister-in-law Christine Kilbourn-Jones. Her grandchildren Danielle Soileau, Kayla Cummins and husband Zac Cummins, Whitney Soileau, Courtney Meinscher, Austin Roberts, Tyler Roberts and Zoe Roberts.

Oh sweet Diana you will be deeply missed. I grew up in the neighborhood with Diana and looked up to her as she married and raised her beautiful daughters. Her home was always warm and full of love. I always remember visiting with Diana, Ruth DeLeon, and my mother, Doris Cornell, in the DeLeon’s kitchen. Lots of laughs and wisdom were shared. I hope her family will be comforted by memories of her well-lived life.

I had the pleasure of being in the Sisters in Christ Sunday School class with Diana at Westgate Memorial Baptist Church. She also helped my daughter & I in our VBS Marketplace shop for many years. She was truly a delight & will be greatly missed.

She was a great teacher! She took geometry outside of the textbook and taught us origami. I’ll never forget that learning experience. I’ll never forget her... .

I am very shocked that Miss Noone is no longer with us anymore. She taught me math at Westbrook High School. She was like a mom to me. She is a very nice,loving and caring person she will be missed greatly. I will be praying for you and your family always.

Diana first came to our home on a voluntary basis to tutor Craig, when he had mono. At that time, I was a single parent with two teenagers working at All Saints for $900 per month. She refused to take money from me. From that association with her, a sweet friendship grew that lasted over 30 years. We watched children and grandchildren grow up. We worked closely in Mary Kay Cosmetics, as she won her red car. She was the kind of friend that, no matter how long you are apart, you take right back up where you left off when you are reunited. Regretfully, I did not know about Diana’s most recent illness. She leaves a hole in my heart, but Heaven is rejoicing and celebrating her arrival. Diana was one of a kind, and I will miss her always. May she rest in Eternal Heavenly peace.
Sending prayers of comfort to Liz, Monika, and Piper, her beloved grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren.

I will forever remember our love and friendship for each other for more than 20 years while teaching our favorite subject, geometry, at Westbrook High School. Sharing our thoughts and plans for our students was pure joy. Our love for God and our families was immeasurable! What a coincidence 5 years ago, when we found ourselves in the Houston area , both caring for newborn grandchildren! I will forever treasure our friendship and will dearly miss you. Rest in God! Love you always.

So sorry for your loss. Diana and I started school together at Amelia and then on to South Park High School. She never missed a birthday to call and wish me birthday wishes. I know she will be missed by many.
Praying for peace and comfort for all of you, that only Jesus can give.
