Jo Anne (Cyphers) Noble was born at home October 27, 1931 in Elizabethton, Tenn., to Lawrence and Myrtle (Buchanan) Cyphers. Jo Anne died at Memorial Medical Center on July 14, 2016, of heart failure, leaving us quickly at the age of 84.
She graduated from Elizabethton High School in 1950, where she played French horn in the band. Most of her career was spent doing bookkeeping. She was very involved in community services, serving as President of Welcome Wagon/Newcomers clubs and of PTAs in Dalton, Ill., and Cedar Falls, Iowa, and as a room mother for both children in grades 1-8. She was an assistant 4-H leader, a Cub Scout den mother, and in Mother’s Club for Boy Scouts.
Jo Anne loved to travel with her husband in their RV, loved crossword puzzles, and was hoping to live to see the U.S. elect our first woman president. She kept the staff at Court Manor, and her daughter Bev, updated on current events by watching the news many hours per day.
