Lois Noel, a retired nurse who celebrated her 101st birthday on Feb. 12, is the newest member of Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada’s 4th Assembly District Century Circle.

“I am proud of the fact that Yolo County has been home to many centenarians who have much to teach us,” Yamada said in a news release. “It is an honor to have citizens like Ms. Noel in the 4th Assembly District Century Circle. We wish her a very happy birthday.”

Created in 2010, the Century Circle honors centenarians and calls attention to the growing number of people 100 years of age and older, their families and those who care for them.

Lois Isabell Goddard Noel was born in Los Angeles on Feb. 12, 1913, to Etta Hay Goddard and Oscar P. Goddard. Her only sibling, a sister, died before she was born. She graduated from high school at 16 and continued her education for 10 more years.

She first attended the Bible Institute of Los Angeles where she majored in music and the Bible and continued on to graduate school, where she received a master’s degree in history at UCLA, as well as a teaching credential. Noel later earned a library credential from UC Berkeley.

She met her husband in Coalinga, and together they raised three sons, Bob, Jerry and David. She now has seven grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. The oldest is almost 24 and the youngest is 5½ months.

If you or a loved one would like to participate in the Century Circle, call Yamada’s district office at 530-662-7867 or email [email protected] with the name, contact information and birthday month of the centenarian.
