Betty Noble celebrates 90th

Betty Noble celebrated her 90th birthday with family at the Tasman Hotel, Port Lincoln.

Born in May, 1929 at Wudinna to parents Percy and Brenda Daniel, Betty loved growing up on a farm near Warramboo, excelling at bike riding, knitting, sewing, riding horses and many sports.

After completing high school in port Lincoln, Betty worked on the family farm until she was sixteen, when she was eligible to become a teacher at Darke Peak.

In 1948 she married Jack Noble at Cleve.

Along with farming at Darke Peak and raising four children; Pat, Graeme, Jan and Brian, Betty enjoyed sport, dancing and CWA.

The farm work was hard but enjoyable, initially with no running water or electricity.

Together Betty and Jack built a shack at Arno Bay which provided many years of family holiday fun.

Retiring to Port Lincoln in 1975, Betty became a successful bowler and well known painter, selling many of her works over the years.

Betty is well loved by her family of five generations, with 34 able to attend her 90th birthday celebrations, many travelling from Townsville, Brisbane and Adelaide.
