Annaliese Madison NoellFebruary 26, 2010 ~ December 30, 2017 (age 7)
Annaliese Madison Noell – a precious child of God, who for eight years faced challenges most people never do, but who communicated without words the love of Jesus Christ, and touched more lives than most could do in 90 years! Born to Edward Benjamin Noell and Barbara Pollard Noell, and to big sister Karissa Mae Noell, in Raleigh, the family moved to Wake Forest, where Annaliese was ushered into heaven from her home, surrounded by family, caregivers, and friends. She was the granddaughter of William and Joan Noell of Jamestown, NC, and of William and Lois Pollard of Cary; the niece of Marc and JoAnn Scott, parents of William and Abigail Scott, and of Douglas and Rhonda Pollard, parents of Andrew, Lily, and Avery Pollard. She was the grandniece of Polly Litton of Lynchburg, VA, of Timothy and Dotty Hansen of Waite Hill, OH, and of Jeannette Burd, of Bullhead City, AZ.
Annaliese, who endured a life of multiple medical challenges and special needs, was loved and cared for by so many faithful members of the medical community – nurses, doctors, therapists, social workers; by the loving staffs, first at Hilburn Academy, and most recently at the Tammy Lynn Center, where she was a student; by those who provided bus transport; by faithful ministers of care and love from four local churches: Providence Baptist Church, Hope Community Church, Capitol Community Church, and Richland Creek Community Church; by countless nurses and CNA’s who served her in her home day and night.
All who knew Annaliese will remember her winsome and contagious smile and laughter, her special elbow hugs, her strength of endurance, and the way the love of Jesus radiated from her being.
The family will receive guests on Friday, January 5, 2018, from 6:00-8:00 PM, at Richland Creek Community Church, 3229 Burlington Mills Rd., Wake Forest, NC 27587. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, January 6, at 10:30 AM at the same church.
