I knew Noel ! She was a beautiful, very sweet, intelligent child. She was good friends with my daughter in elementary and highschool. I remember her telling me that she was going to be a lawyer. She loved helping others. Goodbye, Noel. You will be missed.😓💕🌠

I remember knowing Noel in high school, but I got to know her better when we moved down the street from her about 5 years ago. She was so strong, and I truly admired her willingness to fearlessly overcome adversity in her life. She was a fighter, and cared deeply about those close to her. Her smile was contagious. She was a fellow animal lover, and adored her baby Yuki. Some great memories I have are of Noel racing down the hill to my house to capture Yuki after she'd escaped to come visit her boyfriend Alfie (my dog). This happened on several occasions. I also recall her inviting me and my son to have lunch at her grandma's house one afternoon. It was so apparent how much she loved her family and friends. She has definitely made a powerful impact on this world and left it much better than she found it. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten. ❤

I have memories of Noel growing up in Webster and going to edgar road school with my kids. Beautiful, determined and challenging others with important dialogue and true issues in the world. She matured full circle, as a special and loving helper of social injustice and humane treatment of animals. Such a tremendous soul.

Those eyes. Those Cindy Lou Who eyes are my first memory of Noel. Baby Noel’s fist Christmas with the farm family still makes me smile.
