Donna Louise Noble, 76, of Milford, beloved wife of Paul E. Noble, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on May 5, 2018.
Donna was born in her grandmother’s home in Corning, Ohio, on May 2, 1942. She moved as a young girl to Connecticut when her father, John Harvey, started work at Sikorsky Aircraft. Her mother, Millie Roberts, died unexpectedly in 1952, thrusting Donna into a motherly role caring for her 5-year-old brother John and infant sister Juanita, a duty that she embraced with kindness and patience. Once her father remarried, Donna eventually became the eldest of eight siblings.
