LEXINGTON - Edith Divine Noffsinger, age 92, of Lexington, Kentucky, passed February 8, 2016, at her eldest daughter's home. Her parents, Hosea and Bertha Divine; her brothers, J.T. Divine, Estel H. Divine, and Charlie H. Divine; her sisters, Renova Divine, Willie Lee Mercer, and Helen Ruth Jordan preceded Mrs. Noffsinger in death.

She is survived by her husband of 71 years, Hugh Noffsinger; her children, Nancy Noffsinger Owens, David Noffsinger, Jonathan Noffsinger, and Amy Noffsinger Medley; her daughters-in-law Karla Noffsinger and Jane Weigel; her grandchildren, Aaron Noffsinger, Ashley Noffsinger, Chelsea Meetin, Caitlin Medley, Megan Medley, Adam Noffsinger, Allison Noffsinger, Henry Noffsinger, and Ava Noffsinger; and her great-grandchildren, Aubree Meetin, Ryann Meetin, and Caleb Noffsinger. Her brothers Ned Divine and Robert Divine and numerous, cherished nieces, nephews, cousins, other members of the extended family and friends, also survive her.

Born in Bremen, Kentucky, in 1923, Edith graduated from Bremen High School at age 16. She worked for the Divine Lumber Company in Kentucky and Ohio until she married the love of her life during World War II. Through the early years of their union she lived and worked in a variety of positions in Rantoul, IL, Madison, WI, and Salina, KS—returning to the Bremen to help Hugh work the Noffsinger family farm after the War. She attended business school in Bowling Green, KY, after which she worked as a bookkeeper and secretary while Hugh completed his studies at Western Kentucky University. She was a faithful member, Sunday school teacher, and choir member of Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, Bremen, KY; First Baptist Church of Murray, KY; and Immanuel Baptist Church, Lexington, KY. A member of the Eastern Star, the Murray Women's Club, and founding member of the International Women's Club of Murray, KY, she was an active and engaged contributor to her community.

Edith Noffsinger had a passion for singing, entertaining, and photography. As a young woman, she and her sisters Willie Lee and Helen Ruth formed a vocal trio. Throughout her life, Edith played the piano and guitar to accompany herself and others—often volunteering to provide music and organizing programs for club meetings, church events, and the like. Edith made homes in off-base apartments in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Kansas; on-campus, married housing in Bowling Green, KY, and Bloomington, IN; in military base housing in Ft. Campbell, KY; and in Jeffersonville, IN, Murray, KY, and Lexington, KY. Parties, meetings, and get togethers at Edith Noffsinger's house almost always included some "impromptu" singing, and invariably delicious food, and an abundance of hospitality.

Above all, Edith Noffsinger loved God and her family.
