Novelle was a high energy, creative person who created a secure and fun home for her family. She loved to sew, garden, square and round dance, travel and cook; especially pies. She was the President of PTA at the three schools that her daughter attended: Bayles Elementary, J.L. Long Junior High and Woodrow Wilson High School, all in Dallas, TX.
After Paul retired at the age of 58, he and Novelle travelled extensively in their travel trailer, traveling across the U.S. and Canada. They spent summers out of the Texas heat by heading to Ruidoso, NM where they camped, squared danced and enjoyed the outdoors, especially watching hummingbirds.
Novelle will be remembered by all that knew her as strong, funny, gregarious, welcoming and gracious.
