John Joseph Paul Xavier Noel

August 8, 1945 - September 11, 2022


Our Heavenly Father has welcomed our angel John home to be with his beloved parents Ovide and Gertrude Noel.

John is survived by his wife Pauline and will be sorely missed by his children Danny (Nati),Tammi (Tim), and Michael (Olivia), along with his grandchildren Chelsea (Shannon), Aaron(Raquel), Kaitlin (Ian), Melissa (Brandon), Sara (Justin), and great grandchild Elijah-John.

John’s beloved siblings Jeanne (Peter) and Donna (Pete) meant the world to him. He will be deeply missed by his extended family and countless friends.

John was born to Ovide and Gertrude Noel on August 8, 1945 and grew up in St. Paul, Alberta. John married Pauline on November 29, 1968 and together they shared 53 beautiful years of marriage where they nurtured a legacy of love and commitment. John’s dedication to his family and loved ones will forever be admired.

John was a devoted Catholic and a familiar face at St. Bernadette Parish, where he worked as a custodian for many years. There, John made many long lasting friendships and spent much of his time volunteering at Bingo. He was also a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus, a role he took great pride in.

John will always be known for his love of Coca Cola and his infectious laugh. He touched the lives of many with his love, kindness, and humour. We are deeply saddened to have lost such a prominent figure in our family. John, thank you for showing us the true meaning of family. We miss you already.

Prayers will be held on Wednesday, September 21st , 7pm at St. Bernadette Parish. The funeral will be held on Thursday, September 22nd, 11am at St. Bernadette Parish.
