Louis Noble, 78, retired mail carrier of the Kittitas Valley, passed away early Wednesday morning [August 27, 1930] following a long illness.
He was born June 5, 1852 in Cleveland, Ohio, and was marred to Miss Addie M. Huntley on December 5, 1880. The couple came to this valley in 1908.
Mr. Noble was a rural mail carrier–seven years of which were on route one–for over ten years after which he retired to his small valley farm. His death is deeply grieved by the many farmers and friends to whom he delivered mail daily for a number of years.
He is survived by his widow; three daughters, Mrs. Jess Prater and Mrs. Carl Clinesmith of Ellensburg and Mrs. George Tallman of Leavenworth; 11 grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.
Funeral services were held today at the Honeycutt Chapel at 1:30.
Ellensburg Capital, August 25, 1930
