Mary Noe Bible, age 103, went to be with her Lord on June 25, 2021. Mary was born on May 9, 1918 in Mascot, TN and lived her adult life in Morristown, TN.

In her last years, she loved to sit on her porch watching God’s creation and visiting with friends and offering nuggets of wisdom. When asked what advice she would give, after living more than 100 years, she said “we belong to God and we are accountable to Him, so we need to learn to depend on God”.
