Frances “Arline” Durey Noble, born March 28, 1920, in Dundee, Iowa, passed away Sep. 18, 2012 in Bridgeport. Arline lived the first part of her life in Iowa as well as in Missouri for a while. The family moved to California in 1957 where Arline lived in Canoga Park, Reseda, Paradise, Lancaster and Bridgeport.

Arline loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and strove to bring glory to Him whether in tending to her home and family, singing and helping in the churches she attended, or working as a seamstress/tailor for her family friends and others. Her life was a living out of her desire that all would come to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ and accept Him as their personal Savior. She touched many lives in her 92-plus years and will be missed by all.
