Edith was born on August 20, 1924 in Callaway County, a daughter of Floyd Gordon and Dorothy Edwina (Leonard) Phillips.
Edith was a graduate of Sikeston High School. After graduation, she took courses at Southeast Missouri State University.
Edith started her career at Sikeston Bank. Around 1957, she transferred to Central Bank where she was employed until being appointed the first female bank examiner in the state of Missouri. She even received a letter of achievement from Governor Jon Ashcroft, which she was extremely proud of.
Edith was the first female President of the Mid State United Methodist Women. She was also an active member of the First United Methodist Church. Edith was also proud of being a board member for the Special Learning Center.
Edith was organized and orderly. She kept her mind sharp by balancing checkbooks to the exact penny, and also playing bridge with her friends. Edith enjoyed traveling and took many trips with her bank and church friends to the ski slopes, where she never actually went skiing. She also liked going to the Rocky Mountains with her son, Phil. Edith had a green thumb, and she never let a plant or flower wither. She rarely missed watching a Mizzou basketball game, and loved the rush of adrenaline it gave her. Most of all, Edith cherished the lifelong friendships she made with so many people over the years.
Survivors include: son, Phillip Noll of Jefferson City; nieces and nephews, Charles Oetting (Dan Anderson) of St. Louis, Sondra Flaker (Greg) of Columbia, and Dorleta Lodholz (Mike) of St. Louis; eight great-nieces; one great-nephew; and six great-great-nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and her sister and brother-in-law, Mildred and Charles Oetting.
