Noelle Glass

Noelle Daniel Glass was born October 5, 1955, in Fairfield, and passed away unexpectedly at her home in Streetman, on April 30.
Noelle was the only daughter of Sam and Doris Daniel and many family members referred to her as "baby sister." She had three older brothers, Ponte Daniel, Sammy Wayne Daniel, and Stephen Childs Daniel. Noelle spent almost her entire life in Fairfield. During this time she began working with the family restaurant business at the age of 15. After graduating from Fairfield High School in 1974, she attended Navarro College and Sam Houston State University. On March 23, 1990 she married Mike Glass in Las Vegas, Nevada; they had just celebrated 26 years of marriage. Noelle was loved by everyone and had many passions. She was an excellent cook who loved trying new recipes as she entertained friends and family. She also enjoyed the outdoors and loved fishing. Traveling with Mike or friends to the beach, Las Vegas, or Utah were some of her fondest memories, as well as shopping trips to Dallas or Canton. One of Noelle's loves was the Freestone County Fair, which she referred to as "The Freestone County World's Fair." She loved decorating for the fair and, of course, there was always delicious food. She loved fair week and wanted to make sure others had as much fun as she did. Mike and Noelle enjoyed many things together including trying new restaurants, beach time at Galveston, and Christmas shopping. She made the holidays special for everyone she knew. Noelle's love of life, caring heart and generosity will be greatly missed by her family, friends and her "restaurant" family.
