Patricia “Tricia” Lynn Noble
April 19th, 1983 – February 19th, 2023
Tricia was born and raised in the small town of Gaylord, MN. Early on she was lovingly gifted the
nickname “The Runt” as the youngest and smallest child of the family. Despite her nickname her
personality was larger than life. She entertained her parents, siblings, friends, and even audiences with
her infectious laughter, mischievous nature, and the ever present twinkle in her eye.
As the youngest of three girls, Tricia never wanted for anything. There was always a parent or a sister to
take care of her. This is likely why her sisters continued to tease her into adulthood about her third child
syndrome. She was blessed to grow up in a neighborhood where the neighborhood moms took care of
her like their own and the neighborhood kids turned into her life long friends.
Tricia’s teenage years may have challenged her mom, but in turn she had the time of her life. She spent
her high school years at Sibley East socializing with friends, making up dances and songs with Natalie,
cruising Main street with her sister, Jackie or cheerleading at the football and basketball games.
College life at St. Cloud State University brought challenges and triumphs, a semester abroad in Poland,
and of course meeting new people and creating lifelong friendships. She graduated with a degree in
Marketing in 2007. Following graduation she moved to St. Petersburg, FL where she put her Marketing
degree to use working for Jimmy Johns. Tricia’s jobs in marketing and hospitality allowed her to meet so
many people, many of whom she went above and beyond for, always trying to make people happy.
While living in Florida, Tricia enjoyed spending time at The Tanning Pub, trying out her favorite food at all
the nearby pizza restaurants, going to hockey and baseball games, weekend trips to Vegas, spending
Sundays watching the Vikings games with her Dad, and anything that involved her St. Pete Beach crew.
But her most favorite times were the late afternoons she spent “feeding the cows” with her sister, Cassidy
and being silly and playing with her nephews.
She made everyone in her presence feel welcomed and important. To know Tricia was to be her friend.
To be her friend was to be her family. Tricia’s perfect day was to be surrounded by her friends and family
sharing stories and laughter. May her legacy live on in the people she connected with and may her life
teach us to lead with open hearts and joyful laughter.
Tricia is the proud aunt of Owen Hilgers, Carly Hilgers, Ryder Skluzacek, Luke Skluzacek, Chase
Letourneau, and Wesley Hilgers. She is the beloved sister to Cassidy Noble & Mark Skluzacek, Jackie &
Lee Hilgers, and Chase & Anela Letourneau. She is the cherished daughter of Rhonda and Elver
Niebuhr and Steve and Suzy Noble.
Should you feel so inclined, you are welcome to make a contribution to The Alzheimer’s Association in
Tricia’s memory. Through the years Tricia participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in support and
loving memory of her mom.
Tricia will be honored in a beach-side celebration on Tuesday, March 28th, 2023 from 1-4pm on the patio
of the Bilmar Beach Resort with a special tribute taking place at 2pm.
