BETTY NOBLITT Saturday, June 6, 1925 - Sunday, June 25, 2017
Betty June (Miles) Noblitt, 92, went to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday, June 25, 2017. Betty was born June 6, 1925 in Tina, Missouri, the daughter of Virgil and Pauline Miles.
She married the love of her life Gibson Earl Noblitt in 1946, and together they raised two daughters, Donna Gayle and Cheryl Faye. Betty was a cosmetologist before marrying Gibson and worked some while the girls were young. Mostly, she was involved in the girl’s activities in school, church, scouting, and their sports. Gibson was employed by Boeing in Wichita, Kansas, where they lived for over 10 years.
In 1963, he was transferred to New Orleans with the Aero Space Program. While living in Louisiana, Betty went to nursing school. After returning to Wichita, Betty worked for many years for an obstetrics and gynecology physician. Betty was also a very skilled artist. She developed her skills in oil, acrylic and porcelain art in Wichita studying with many local artists. After their retirement Gibson and Betty moved to Destin, Florida where she found her passion in water color. She has many paintings which she has shared with family and friends.
While in Destin, Betty and Gibson were members of Grace Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. They were very active in their church and were Stephen Ministers. Betty's great love was studying the Bible. She was also a prayer warrior: praying for family, friends, church, and country every day.
In 2005, they moved to Sugar Land, Texas and joined Fishers of Men Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. After Gibson's death in 2009, Betty co-founded the knitting group, making prayer shawls, as a ministry to be given to people in the church and community. They would also knit or crochet baby blankets for Baskets of Hope.
Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Gibson; daughter, Donna Gayle Gray; grandson, Michael Jenkins; great granddaughter, Keely Jenkins; brother, Donald Miles; and sisters Marilynn Dunn and Bonnie Fabro.
