Patty Ellen Noah Obituary
Patty Ellen Noah Patty Ellen Noah (Peterson) (that's Patty with a Y!), 73, passed on March 27, 2014 at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, CA, surrounded by several loved ones. What do you do when you cannot sum in words the most amazing woman that ever lived? I guess you start by describing her in the ways that she would proudly wish to be remembered: a loving mother, adoring grandmother and great-grandmother and selfless confidant to all whom she encountered. Patty was born February 9, 1941 in Hornersville, MO, to mother Wanda Baxter and father, the late Norvie Noah. At the age of 8, she and her family relocated to McKinleyville, CA. After graduating from Arcata High in 1959, she began a family of her own, mothering two children and eventually becoming a grandmother and great-grandmother. Though she spent much of her working career as a postmaster with the United States Postal Service, her greatest impact was on the lives of those to whom she took on a role of caregiver through the IHSS program. Her greatest joy in life was her family, for which she was the glue that held it together and the rock that kept it strong in times of difficulty. Her favorite pastimes were family gatherings, such as holidays, ski trips, and rooting for "the kids" at every one of their sporting events. Patty enjoyed cooking, traveling the states, attending Giants games and concerts of all types. She had a deep love for Elvis Presley, oldies but goodies, country western and pop music. She was known for her "Pattyisms" such as "dumaflachee, thingamajig, whatchamacallit and whosamawhatsit". She is survived by her mother, Wanda Baxter, siblings Nickey Brimble, Kay Davis and Terry Noah, children Mark Peterson and Lori Skrbin, grandchildren Saralynn Schenck, Laura Bartelson, Trey Bartelson and Kazan Peterson, great-grandchild Hope Schenck and her latest pride and joy, her pet Chihuahua Madeline, AKA Mady. Her unconditional love will remain forever unmatched. She will be deeply missed. In lieu of flowers, donations to the research department of the would be appreciated.
