Noelie was born in 1948 in New Orleans, Louisiana to parents, Louis,
and Ethelyn Matulich. She graduated from West Jefferson High School in
1966 and went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree in economics from
Southwest Texas University.
Noelie loved all her family and friends dearly. Her son and
grandchildren were the light of her life and her relationship with her
friends was cherished.
With her family and friends, she enjoyed traveling, laughing over
meals, and sharing stories. From skiing in Ruidoso to walking along
the beaches of California, Noelie’s life was filled with wonderful
memories of special times with those she loved. Noelie also loved to
cook, and her legendary oyster dressing recipe is a lasting legacy to
her passion for cooking and cuisines of all kinds, especially Cajun.
Those who knew her best, knew of her deep faith in God and this faith
along with the support of her family and friends helped her with her
cancer diagnosis. Noelie had a special way of making those around her
feel loved, and understood and coupled with her warmth, charm, humor,
grace, and spice for life she made the world a much brighter place and
will truly be missed.
She is survived by her loving husband, Horace; son, Eric (Sandra)
McCarstle; grandchildren: Kade, Kamden, and Chloe (Sarah); step-son, Steve
(Suzie) Austin; step-daughters, Elizabeth Eppler and Victoria Austin;
nieces: Marsha, Carla, and Paula; nephew Chris; as well as, many
cherished grandchildren of the heart, great nieces, great nephews, and
Family and friends are welcome to attend a celebration of life,
