Baker City, 1937-2019
Marie Noble, 82, of Baker City, died Nov. 14, 2019, at home with her family by her side.
Marie Helen was born on March 28, 1937, at Los Angeles to Ulrich and Louise Press. She was raised in San Diego and graduated from San Diego High School in 1955.
She married Dick Noble and they had one son, Todd Robert Noble. Marie worked for Dave Martin Sand and Gravel Company for many years in Southern California.
She enjoyed reading, watching old movies, roses, her special lil’ four-legged companion “Bailey,” the San Diego Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks. Marie’s favorite saying was “I have a need to know.”
Marie moved to Baker City in the early ’90s, making her home on Church Street. When her health began to decline, she moved in with the Howertons out near the airport. These last few years, she has lived with her son, Todd, and his wife, Carri.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Bob Press; and grandson, A.J. Noble.
Marie is survived by her son, Todd, and his wife, Carri, of Baker City; grandchildren, John Gibbs, Tia Gibbs, Jason Gibbs and Justin Gibbs; brothers, Dick Press and Jerry Press; and sisters, Shirley Kuebler and Marilyn Taylor.
