Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
Alice K. Noebel (née Koch) went home to be with the Lord her Savior on August 12, 2023 in Indianapolis, IN. She died of complications from a stroke.
Alice was born on September 1, 1934 in Hudson, Iowa to Emil and Olive Koch. She had one sister, Joretta Koch Wilson. Alice graduated from Milwaukee Bible College in 1956. Following her graduation, she worked as a librarian, teacher, and in ministry roles throughout her lifetime. Alice married David Arthur Noebel on August 24, 1957 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They were happily married for over 65 years. Alice and David had one son, Brent David Noebel, and one daughter, Joy Noebel Reese. Alice is preceded in death by her son, Brent, who met the Lord in 2002, and her great-grandson, Elliot Sean Geddie (2019). Alice is survived by her husband, daughter, five grandchildren, Ann Elizabeth Ewing (Lucas Ewing), Luke David Geddie, Matthew Todd Geddie (Kaylyn Geddie), Rachel Anne Thiemann (Evan Thiemann), and Samuel Grant Geddie (Melissa Geddie) and four great-grandchildren: Ava Joy Ewing, Ethan Craig Ewing, Willow Rose Geddie, and Emery Joy Geddie.
Alice was truly the epitome of a Proverbs 31 woman, a daily example of the perfect helpmate and complement designed by the Lord for her husband, whom she so deeply loved. Her unwavering faith, enduring spirit, inner strength, humility, kind and gentle spirit, strong midwestern work ethic, and most importantly, servant’s heart, were an example to all who knew her.
