Brejetta (Beth) Edney Noble, 66, whose profound grace and creativity nurtured her family, friends and generations of schoolchildren throughout central Kentucky, died on 9 January 2017 after a 12-year fight with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. She is survived by her adoring husband of 42 years, David Noble; her daughters, Rachel Noble, (Versailles Ky.) and Rebecca Noble, (Los Angeles Ca.); her son, Nathan Noble, (Denver Co.); her granddaughter, Sophia Tsvetanov; and her sister, Diana Edney McMeekin (Nairobi, Kenya). She is also survived by her nieces and nephews Katie Cress, Doug and Sandra Cress, Quinn Atherton, Lauren and Emily McMason, Terry McMeekin and Phil Moses, Dana and Andy Waldroup and Christopher and Julie Creech, as well as 15 grandnieces and grandnephews. She was preceded in death by her older brother, James Edney (2002). Born on August 13, 1950, in Lexington, Beth graduated from Henry Clay High School in 1968, then the University of Kentucky (B.A. and M.A.) It was at UK that Beth and David met, beginning a love affair that served as an inspiration to many as role models, teachers and community leaders in Versailles. Beth believed deeply in the power of reading and education, and taught for 27 years in both Fayette and Woodford counties. Upon retirement, Beth was an educational consultant for Kentucky Educational Television and then joined Convene Pro. Beth was particularly fond of the art of French impressionists, and loved reading aloud to children. She traveled far and wide for pleasure, and enjoyed visiting her family in London, Barcelona, Paris, Honolulu, Boston, Portland, Olympia, Washington, D.C., and Southern California. But she excelled at making her home the ultimate destination, particularly through “Cousin Camp” reunions that brought together extended family members each summer. She was a member of the Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church. Visitation will be held on Thursday, January 12, from 4-8, followed by a funeral on Friday, January 13, at 10 a.m. Both will take place at Clark Funeral Home in Versailles. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Blue Grass Community Foundation for The Noble Fund, a scholarship for Woodford County High School students, 499 East High Street, Suite 112, Lexington, KY 40507.
