February 25, 1957 - March 21, 2021
Wendy Noble began her life’s journey on February 25, 1957, in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was born to the late Leo Rochon Sr. and Sylvia Lanoix. Wendy gained her wings on March 21, 2021 at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital.
Wendy attended grade school at Sacred Heart Elementary in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She later moved to New Orleans, Louisiana where she attended Xavier University Preparatory School and then Xavier University where she began her studies in Commercial Art and Journalism. She then transferred to McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana and continued her education in Journalism and English.
Wendy Noble had a love for cooking that was inherited from her grandmother, Mrs. Zelida Rochon, whom everyone knew as “Granny”. She pursued her career as a cook at Aramark offshore, Isle of Capri Casino, and also L’Auberge Du Lac Casino where she later retired due to becoming disabled. Although no longer employed, her passion for cooking remained, and she welcomed every opportunity to feed anyone she could. Each plate was served with love.
Wendy accepted God into her life at an early age, and He was the true love of her life. She lived a life that was a reflection of His love, and she believed a “relationship “ with God is the goal rather than just a religious experience. She cherished every opportunity to let God’s light shine through her, and she never met a stranger. She imprinted her goodness on everyone she knew, and her kindness left a mark on everyone’s life and hearts forever.
Wendy Noble was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Leon and Zelida Rochon; her maternal grandparents William and Irene Joseph ; Her parents Leo Rochon Sr. and Sylvia Lanoix; her aunt Donna Taylor; and step-daughter Ashley Buckley.
