Bonnie Jean (Chasek) Noble was born May 5, 1943 to Tony and Florence (Weihe) Chasek in Chadron, the second of four children, and passed away on July 30, 2020, at Crestview Care Center in Chadron.

Bonnie spent her childhood in the Beaver Valley Community located about twenty miles northeast of Chadron in Sheridan County, NE. She received her first 8 years of grade school education in the Middle Beaver Valley School, then in the fall of 1957 entered Chadron High School, where she graduated in May of 1961. During her high school years, she boarded with different families in Chadron during the week.

After graduated, Bonnie started to work as a secretary for Mr. James Myers, Chadron High School Principal, in the fall of 1961. On June 23, 1962, she was united in marriage to Harold Wayne Noble at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Chadron. During the summer of 1964, she went to work for Kansas Nebraska Natural Gas Company and worked for Kansas Nebraska until the spring of 1965.

Leah Jean was born on October 7, 1965, and David Wayne was born March 29, 1969, both at Chadron Community Hospital. Bonnie was a stay-at-home mom at babysat for other people as well until David started kindergarten.

Harold and Bonnie bought a farm northwest of Whitney, NE, and north of Whitney Lake in the spring of 1967, but sold the farm to Dr Vernon Rockey in the spring of 1973.

Bonnie worked for H&R Block during the income tax season of 1975, then went to work at Chadron Middle School as a teacher’s aide that fall, staying there through May of 1977. She went to work for Jerry Baker’s accounting office in the summer of 1977 and worked there September 1980 when she went to work at Chadron State College on September 1, 1980. She remained at the college until her retirement in June of 2005.

Bonnie’s interests throughout life included cooking, sewing and genealogy. Genealogy was a big challenge, but she kept trying to piece the puzzle together as family has always been so important to her. She was an accomplished baker, seldom using a recipe.

Some of Bonnie’s happiest times and fondest memories were the ones spent with her children and grandchildren, especially playing cards and other games with her grandchildren. Harold and Bonnie took family vacations every summer with the Rocky Mountains among their favorite destinations. Another favorite family activity was sledding in the winter at Chadron State Park with friends and neighbors, which included the Druecker family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Harold, her son David, brother Richard Chasek, and sister Janice (Chasek) Gilbert.

Survivors include: daughter Leah and husband Kurt Nikont and their children Blake, Brock and Bailey Nikont, all of Scottsbluff. Daughter-in-law Renae Noble and her daughters Ashlynne Noble and fiance Reid Longmore of Scottsbluff, Alyssa Noble of Lincoln, and Aubree Noble of Chadron; brother Dale and wife Jeanette Chasek of Chadron; several nieces and nephews and extended family.

Chamberlain Chapel of Chadron, Nebraska is in charge of arrangements.
