Amy Noel Obituary

Amy Jo Noel (Beshalske) was born Aug. 11, 1962, to Don and Jeanette Beshalske. She married Doug Noel on May 28, 1982. She passed peacefully Wednesday, March 6, 2024.

Amy worked at Forest Christian Preschool before dedicating over 20 years as the children's librarian at Forest-Jackson Public Library.

She is survived by her husband, Doug; daughter, Chloe (Max) Gauthier; and sisters, Denise (Dave) Troyan and Becky (Mike) McKinney.

The library was her home away from home and she loved making it a fun place for everyone - telling jokes and talking with patrons and she especially enjoyed her time with the kids. She was very creative and artistic and headed the library's 'Cut the Craft' program. Amy and Doug also made the library's parade float for the Tree Town Festival every year.

In her free time, she enjoyed reading, going thrifting, eating out, and creating fused glass art with her daughter. She loved animals, bright colors, and anything sparkly.

Amy attended Forest United Methodist Church and shared her joy by giving everyone a kiss (Hershey Kiss) each Sunday and by helping with Vacation Bible School every summer.

She also appreciated the little things - a rainbow, a ladybug on a leaf, a sunset, a hard summer's rain, a shooting star – and looked for the Little Bit of Magic (LBOM) in each and every day. We encourage you to do the same in her memory. She was loved by many and will be missed immeasurably.

There will be a celebration of life to honor Amy at a later date. Details will be shared with the community in the near future.

Donations in her memory can be made to Forest-Jackson Public Library or Bridge Hospice Care Center in Findlay.
