Bridget Ann (Noonan) Noobler was born September 28, 1984, in Stevens Point to Jim and Karen Noonan. She died on December 14, 2021, after a courageous battle with cancer.
She is survived by her wife Julie (Kuebler) Noobler, daughters Campbell and Willa Noobler, parents Jim and Karen Noonan, sister Katie Noonan, brother Patrick Noonan, sister-in-law Christeen Noonan; brother-in-law JW Kuebler, sister-in-law Courtney Kuebler, niece Piper Noonan, nephews Jack and Bodie Kuebler, niece Colette Kuebler, father-in-law John Kuebler, mother-in-law Barbara Kuebler, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Henry and Betty Noonan; and Chalmers and Mary Fowler. Bridget was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, teacher, and friend.
She attended Stevens Point Area Senior High School in Stevens Points where she was class president and a dedicated French horn player. She attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth where she majored in Secondary English Education.
Bridget moved to Chicago in 2008 where she worked for AmeriCorps before becoming a high school English teacher at Golder College Prep. She met her wife, Julie, and they were married in 2013. After attending graduate school for educational administration, she continued her career as an assistant principal at CICS Northtown Academy in Chicago.
Bridget was a skilled and passionate educator. She was loved by her colleagues and students alike. Bridget’s sense of humor and ability to make friends with anyone were second to none. Her daughters were her greatest accomplishment, and she loved being a mom.
She was an animal lover and pet mom to dog, Beaker and cat, Zimmer. Bridget was taken far too soon and will be greatly missed.
Forever a writer, she left us with these words:
“Both Bob (Dylan) and Rod (Stewart) had it right when they said, ‘Stay forever young.’ I guess I get to do that for eternity now. Don’t worry- I had a really great life. An amazing wife, two amazing kids. A mom, dad, brother, and sister who loved me. In-laws who loved me just as much. I had nieces and nephews who I wish I could see grow up, but considering whose family they are in, I think they will be just fine. I had friends, really good ones. Some really old ones too (they were also good). I wasn’t always good at keeping in touch, but I thought about all of them often. I hope you thought about me. Don’t forget, I had a million cousins, tons of aunts and uncles—family was everything. I don’t think I said that enough. I had adventures, heartache, loss, but most importantly – love. I spent my younger years exploring the woods and using books to take me to other worlds. I spent my high school years being a dorky athlete- which didn’t really fit well together. I spent my college years falling in love with Lake Superior (and maybe a girl or two). I spent my adult life being a Panther and a Puma. I also spent my adult life building a family. That’s what I lived for. I will now spend my eternal life watching over all of you, visiting my favorite places, eating my favorite foods, reading my favorite books. But most importantly, I will always remember the people in my life. After all….you helped shape who I was. I love you all. Goodbye.”
