Martha D. (Anglin) Noles, 91, of Clear Creek-Smith Lake, passed away on Thursday, June 28, 2012, at her son’s home. She was born on March 20, 1921, in Baldwyn, Miss. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. She called everyone “Angel.” She was a Sunday School teacher at the Poplar Springs Church of Christ and her husband was an elder and one of the founders of that church. She was a girl scout mother and very involved. She was a fabulous seamstress, making many bridal gowns for women that she loved. She always loved designing dresses and so she worked for many clothing shops like Martha Cross of La Jolla, Calif., and when she moved to Jasper in the 1970s so that they could take care of her husband's parents, she worked for J.M. Hayes Dept. Store in downtown Jasper, and when they closed the store, J.C. Penney’s called her to work for them and she worked there for 10 years until she retired to take care of her ailing husband and to fish and plant flowers, which she loved doing almost as much as helping people look their very best in pretty clothes.
