Obituary of Barbara Elsie Noll

ILION – Barbara Elsie Noll, age 84, of Ilion, passed away peacefully in her sleep, on Sunday, February 20, 2022. She was born on June 7, 1937, in Herkimer, the daughter of Kenneth and Elsie (Potter) Broat. She lived in Mohawk until she was five and then resided in Ilion for the next seventy-nine years. Barbara graduated from Ilion High School and Central City Business Institute (CCBI), Syracuse. On August 22, 1959, she was married to “the love of her life”, Charles “Charlie” A. Noll, in Annunciation Church, Ilion. Charlie died on September 8, 2012. Prior and in addition to raising her three children, Barbara held several jobs, including private secretary, medical secretary, canteen/café manager and teacher’s assistant. Barbara greatly enjoyed caring for her various dogs, (Jingles, Pepper, Bandit and Squeakers), cooking, traveling and camping with Charlie, tending to her flowers and most of all, spending time with her children and grandchildren. Barbara is survived by her three children: Laura Bay and her husband, James, Eric Noll and his wife, Marianne, and Brett Noll and his wife, Elizabeth Mahler Noll; eight grandchildren: DeAnna Bay and her fiancé, Jason Markins, Michael Bay and his wife, Natalie, Kenneth Noll and his wife, Alicia, Kathryn (Noll) Ward and her husband, Sam and Kelsey, Joseph, Isaac and Allison Noll; and three great-grandchildren: Riley, Archer and Aurora. Barbara will be remembered as very strong of character and a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her “halfway house” was always open and babysitting was “free of charge”.
