Aldrich, Noel Jean  
On April 23, 2016, at 6PM, surrounded by loving family, beloved wife, and mother Noel Jean Aldrich passed away of complications from a stroke. She will be greatly missed by all. Jean was born at home in rural Bruce, Mississippi, the first of four daughters of Albert and Johnnie Weeks. The family soon moved to San Jose, California. Jean graduated from Campbell High School and went on to attend Pepperdine College. At Pepperdine she met the love of her life, Alan Aldrich. They married in 1955, and she soon delivered twin boys, Kerry and Kipp. In 1956 the family moved to San Jose, California where daughter, Laurie, was added, and a son, Tim, joined the tribe. They moved to Eugene, Oregon where daughter, Lisa, completed the family. Jean was active in many pursuits. She was well known in her circle of friends and family for her superb cooking and baking skills. Her exquisite desserts were without compare. Jean was also an integral part of the Eugene fiber arts community. Her wall hangings and unique cards adorn many homes, churches and schools in the area. She was an active volunteer in her church, Dayspring Fellowship, in the full service of others. She took an active part in delivering meals to seniors in the Red Cross Meals on Wheels program. Jean spent many years volunteering at Churchill High School, creating beautiful handmade costumes and sets.
