Kenda Lea Noble

February 22, 1945 - December 15, 2012


Kenda Lea Nobel (nee Carty), age 67, born February 22, 1945 in Edmonton AB to Joseph and Winnie Lea (Skaggs) Carty.  Kenda lived in Edmonton and Eureka River AB before moving with her family to Prince George, where she met and married Richard (Dick) Noble and raised a family while enjoying a 29-year career with Scotiabank.  Dick and Kenda fulfilled their lifelong desire to live by the ocean when they retired to beautiful Powell River in 2003.

Left to remember Kenda are her loving family, husband Dick, three children Terri-Lea Noble and Lana Noble, both of Prince George and Wade Noble (Mickie) of Victoria; four grandchildren Sean Peddlesden of Prince George, Kaytlyn Peddlesden of Australia, Trevor Baceda of Prince George and Steven Noble of Victoria; three great-grandsons Rolan, Draegen and Xander all of Prince George; five siblings Richard Carty of Berwyn AB, Muriel Carty of Prince George, Glennis Stevens (Keith) of Powell River, Janet Dozois (Louis) of Legal AB and Lyle Carty of Prince George; brother-in-law Billy Lee of Kamloops, sister-in-law Peggy Noble of Port Alberni and many nieces and nephews.

Kenda was predeceased by her third child, a stillborn son Scott Cameron Noble; her parents Joseph and Winnie Lea; parents-in-law Art and Kathleen Noble; sister-in-law Charlotte Lee and brother-in-law Ken Noble.

Unfortunately, for most of her Powell River years, Kenda has endured the effects of metastasized breast cancer, which she bravely fought to her final days.  After a rapid decline, Kenda peacefully slipped away on December 15, 2012 with family at her bedside.  Kenda has taken her lovely smile to Heaven, where she is in everlasting peace.

The family thanks Drs. Burns and Hoffert for their expertise and loving care.  Many thanks as well to all the wonderful nurses and caregivers over the years, in particular Anita and Christine at Evergreen Extended Care Unit for their outstanding kindness and compassion over Kenda’s final hours.
