Elizabeth Jeannette Noble Partridge, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grand mother, aunt and friend passed away peacefully in the comfort of her own home on Sept. 16, 2001.

Jeannette was born January 18, 1924, in Laramie, Wyoming. She graduated from Laramie High School, and soon afterward married her sweetheart, William S. Partridge, prior to his service in the Army Air Corps during World War II. Jeannette followed Bill around the country during the war, doing odd jobs to support herself. After the war they settled in Salt Lake where Bill attended graduate school. They were the parents of five children. Jeannette was an excellent teacher and a published writer. Jeannette wrote a pamphlet titled "Losing a Loved One" about dealing with grief, which she sent to many people who had lost loved ones. She started a quilt pattern business, designing original wholecloth quilt patterns. She worked in the temple, and with her husband filled four full-time missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her life was devoted to service to others. She had various callings in all church auxiliaries, including Relief Society President and stake sports director for young women.

Jeannette was an avid bowler. She was on a ladies bowling league for the past 30 years. She said she would "rather die than miss bowling." We assume she has already organized a heavenly bowling league. Jeannette was preceded in death by her husband, William, and one son, Murray.

She is survived by: Nancy Plagge, Dianne Killpack (Terry), Bill Partridge (Bonnie), Carol Rosander (Joseph); 24 grandchildren, seven great-grandchil-dren.
