Nola Marie Pyle, 65, started life in Clay County, Kan. and passed away at home with loved ones in New Paris June 9, 2021.
She is survived by her husband of 45 years, Douglas Pyle, and their two children: LaVerene (Pyle) Garner of Thomasville, North Carolina and Derrick Pyle of Seattle, Wash. One of Nola’s greatest loves was being a Granola to her granddaughter Ellery Garner of Thomasville, N.C.
Fairfield Community Schools were incredibly important to Nola through the years. She served on both the PTA of New Paris Elementary and on the Fairfield Jr. Sr. High athletic boosters at different points in her life. It brought her joy to see those organizations bring their goals to fruition. She also never met a bake sale or a cake walk that she didn’t support.
Nola was proudest of her family and their successes but was also proud of the business Douglas and she built. She cared deeply about each employee and worked tirelessly to provide them a stable job at Vinyl By Design. She was also very proud of the 15 years she worked as a registered nurse in ICU at Goshen Hospital. Nola missed the camaraderie of her BINGO table at the VFW this last year due to COVID-19. Prior to COVID-19, she made sure birthdays at BINGO were celebrated with cakes, pies, or cookies!
Her willingness to serve others through hard work, grit, and integrity was second to none. Her family will deeply miss her fierce and loyal dedication, her homemade chocolate sheet cakes, and family card games.
Visitation will be held from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. Monday, June14. The funeral mass at St. John The Evangelist Catholic Church will follow directly. Father Royce Gregerson will officiate. The family request masks be worn and COVID-19 guidelines be followed.
Memorial donations may be given to Toys for Tots.
