Marcella A. Noe Obituary
Marcella Noe

Marcella A. Noe, 85, of Highland, IL, born August 7, 1932, in Marine, IL, went home to Heaven on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.

Marcella was a wonderful wife, mother and grandma. Her home was always filled with the aroma of a good, home cooked meal. Friends, family and guests were always welcomed at "Marcella's Table". When asked what her favorite dessert was, she joked, "One I didn't need to make", but her children fondly remember her delicious lemon and German chocolate cakes. She loved spending time with her family and friends.

Marcella loved to pray the Hail Mary, Angel of God, and the Our Father. She taught her daughters how to measure the cooking time of a dish by the number of Hail Mary's or Rosaries they prayed. Her rosary was always nearby.

When asked what she would like for her birthday or Christmas, she would ALWAYS reply, "Good Children". She did not want a new dress, a pretty necklace or flowers. Marcella would refuse all, asking only for GOODNESS. So, in honor of their dear Mother, that is what her children tried to give her, was simple goodness. God Bless you Mom...We Love You.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas L. and Rose V. (nee Karl) Morstain; sisters and brothers-in-law, Rosemary (Lester) Voegele, and Bernice (Ray) Riggs; brother and sister-in-law, Karl (Lorraine) Morstain; granddaughter, Keri Suzanne Helldoerfer; and step-great-granddaughter, Jessica Merrick.

Marcella is survived by her husband, Paul V. Noe, whom she married May 1, 1954, at St. Elizabeth's Church in Marine, IL, who survives in Highland, IL; children, Julia (Severin, "Sonny") Emig, Highland, IL, Susan Noe, Mascoutah, IL, Paula (Gerard) Helldoerfer, Troy, IL, Michael (Patricia) Noe, Highland, IL, Patricia (Stephen) Magdich, New Braunfels, TX, and Mary (Robert) Daiber, Highland, IL; her dear grandchildren, Dan (Lisa) Emig, Anne (Allen) Buss, John (Liz) Emig, Cheri (Joseph) Buck, Jason (Megan) Helldoerfer, Amanda (AJ) Fox, Breanna Noe, and Nick (special friend, Beth Steenwyk) Daiber; her dear great-grandchildren, Abby and Hannah Emig, Brock, Evie Rose and Shane Buss, Verity Emig, Emmett and Everett Buck, and Hadley Helldoerfer; her dear step-grandchildren, Aaron (Tina) Magdich, and Jennifer Vela; her dear step-great-grandchildren, Billy, Austin & Dakota Leroy, Gage and Ryleigh Vela; as well as several nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.
