Tribute For Garnett Noel
Who Died Jan 9 After Brief Illness

On the night of January 9 the death angel visited the home of Garnett Noel and took the husband and father.

Garnett was the son of the late K.P. and Jennie Noel, one of fourteen children, eight of them still living. He was born on June 4, 1902 making him 39 years old.

September 20, 1923 he was married to Miss Effie Lou Cunningham. Five children were born to this union:

James Garnett, Annarine, Howard, John and Noble, All these survive him; also his mother, three sisters, five brothers and one half brother. Mrs Jennie Noel, the mother, John Noel, Shelby Noel, Earl Noel and Major Noel, of Princeton; Mrs Terry Dunning, of Cadiz, Mrs Will Calhoun, Mrs Jim Calhoun of Lower Donaldson and Harry Noel of Hopkinsville, Oscar Noel, of Paducah.

Garnett lived all his life in Trigg county. He was a farmer and for some time had been employed with the WPA here.
He was a good workman, a good neighbor and devoted husband and father. He will be missed by all who knew him for his
kind and jolly nature made him loved by all. Garnett never made a public profession of faith in Christ but from the way he lived and what he said before he died we are sure he was a Christian.

friends and relatives.

Obituary ---  On Friday morning, May 17, at 5 o'clock, death entered the home of Perry Noel and claimed his beloved wife,
Mollie Noel, age 39, who had been in bad health for more than a year of consumption. She leaves a husband and seven children, besides her parents, two brothers, one sister and many relatives and friends to mourn her loss.
  Mrs. Noel had been a member of Mount Pleasant Baptist church for about 22 years, and on the night before she died told her children to be good and live right and meet her in a better world. She said death had no terrors for her and she was going to rest. We miss her sweet face from our midst and it will never seem like going to sisters again and not find her there in  her rocking chair, where she sat so often and so patiently through her long illness.
  Funeral services were conducted on Saturday evening, May 18, at Mount Pleasant church by Rev. Hyde, and afterwards they laid her body to rest at Blue Spring grave yard. May God comfort the bereaved husband and children and all who so deeply mourn her loss, and may we live so that when death claims us we may say as she did, we are going home in that land where death never comes, where all is peace and love.   Her sister
