Mariah Bte Noor

May 11, 1941September 22, 2020

Mariah Bte Noor, 79 (going on 39), of Marshall/Longview, passed away peacefully at her new home in Marshall on September 22, 2020. Mariah was born in Jahore, Malaysia. She met her American family in Singapore in 1974. She moved to the U.S.A. to be with her new American family in 1978. Mariah was a professional seamstress and absolutely loved so many of her customers. Many of them became her very close friends.

SIGNIFICANT LIFE EVENTS (in America) Mariah obtained her driver’s license at the age of 58. This, in and of itself, was a huge accomplishment for her and quite the story. In 2001, at the age of 60, Mariah became a very proud American citizen. She was so American that she was eagerly anticipating the upcoming election in which she wanted to cast her vote for Trump. In fact, Mariah was such an avid Trump supporter, her Trump 2020 ball cap is resting with her now.

TALENTS Mariah was a woman of many talents. Not only could she sew anything and everything, she could also make and decorate the fanciest of wedding cakes. Cooking was also one of her great talents. She cornered the market on chicken curry. Mariah’s chicken curry was the best to be had anywhere on this earth.

HOBBIES Mariah’s hobbies included walking at least 1.5 hours 6 days a week, tending to her wide variety of plants and flowers, gardening, yard work, and gambling. She had more fun visiting the boats in Shreveport than anybody should.

Everyone who met her met the very same Mariah - never mean, never angry, always honest, always giving, and always unselfish. Her kind, sweet, even temperament was consistent no matter who she was around. She was MaMariah to her American family for 46 years, and MaMariah will be tremendously missed.

Mariah is survived by her American family Darius Gene Adams, Gail Adams Reilly, son Bryn Adams, daughters Gina Adams Martin and Starla Adams Lumpkin, sons-in-law Troy Martin, Jr. and Burl Lumpkin, granddaughters Taylor Denae and BreeAnn Rylee Martin, and grandson Garrett Adam Martin.

The family would like to thank Choice Hospice of Tyler for their compassionate help. On behalf of Mariah, the family would like to thank her friends for bringing such joy to her life. She valued each and every one of you.
