Louine Noble was born July 22, 1940, in Bishop, Texas to Brunos Earl Noble and Rachel Ruth Davis Noble. She passed away on September 2, 2020.
In 1949, the family moved to Lockhart and in 1958 she graduated from Lockhart High School. She graduated in 1968 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music, voice performance, from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. During the summers of 1968 and 1969 she was awarded a musical internship to work with the Boston Symphony at the Tanglewood Festival in Lenox, Massachusetts. During 1969-1970, Louine lived in Zurich, Switzerland, where she was a member of the Zurich Opera Studio.
Returning to the United States in 1970 she began her teaching career in Pearsall, Texas, where she taught second grade. For a brief time she taught on a federally funded music project in the state of Maine.
Returning to Texas she continued her teaching career in Liberty Hill where she remained until 1991. During this time she taught sixth grade, was elementary principal, and superintendent of schools. She continued her education career at Education Service Center, Region XIII, where she served as a field service agent and later coordinator of administrative services. Following retirement from the service center in August 1995, she established a consulting business that provided much joy from continuing to work with her many friends in education. This included a relationship with Texas State University in which she mentored and coordinated activities for individuals working toward certification as public school administrators.
Throughout her life Louine loved to travel, and was active and vocal until the end in her support of public schools (particularly those in Liberty Hill!), as well as community activities such as Operation Liberty Hill and Over the Hill Gang.
Louine will be particularly missed at Cross Tracks Church, on which she left incredible and indelible marks. She founded the church choir in the 1990s and was its director until the COVID-19 hiatus. She was also impetus for starting the Grandies, a fellowship/mission group for senior citizens. She served many years as Director of Music and as chair of the Worship Committee, plus being involved with other church committees and activities too numerous to mention. Her church activities were entirely voluntary, never paid; she set a high standard for service to our Lord.
Louine was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Ruth Noble, a brother and his wife, Earl Joe and Charlene Noble, and a sister, Rachel Moore.
She is survived by a very dear friend, Donna Precht, numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins, and many dear friends.
A memorial service is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 26, in the Liberty Hill High School Performing Arts Center.
Memorials may be made to Cross Tracks Church, Liberty Hill, or to the charity of your choice.
