It is with great sadness that we share the loss of Peggy Rice Noble. She was a devoted wife, an amazing mother, and a much beloved grandma. She loved every flower and living thing, as well as music and dancing. She was also a nurse, and the first aid station for the neighborhood. She made everywhere she lived a true home, where everyone was welcome. She lived with integrity and honesty and grace. She was one of those rare people who could find good in anyone and was liked or loved by everyone who knew her. She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Gary Rollin Noble; her children, David and Sarah; and four grandchildren, Caitlin, Reynaldo, Adam, and Alexander. Please join us in celebrating Peggy's life and memory on October 15, 2016 at Wages & Sons Funeral Home, 1040 Main Street, Stone Mountain, Georgia. Visitation will be held at 10:30 a.m., followed by a funeral service at 11 a.m. A celebration and remembrance will take place at Park Springs Community Hall at 2:00 p.m., 500 Springhouse Circle, Stone Mountain, Georgia 30087. Donations in her honor would be welcomed at The Center for the Visually Impaired

  10. Gary, If I am already missing Peggy so much, I can’t imagine how much you are hurting. To me she was still so young. Such spirit. Such heart. So bright. So loving. I can’t know the depth of your pain right now. Just know that I care, and will continue to care. With the love of a friend…forever. – Philip

  11. To have known Peggy was a true blessing in our lives. She was the first one that showed us all around the city of Atlanta and made it come alive for us! She was so supportive and enthusiastic about us moving here, and was a huge positive influence in making our transition smooth. Her enthusiasm for life, her family, her loving husband, and the world of diversity she embraced was a model of what is good in life and inspired all of us that had the joy of knowing her. Her values and loving heart will never be forgotten.

  12. It was indeed a privilege to have known Peggy over the last 30 years. She had a huge heart and we are grateful for the opportunity to have shared that time with her. She will be greatly missed by all of us. Our sincere condolences.
