Juanita Mae Nosler, age 85, of Noblesville, IN passed away May 11, 2021 at Prairie Lakes Health Campus at Noblesville.  She was born February 1, 1936 to Floyd and Edith (Gibbs) Gerber, one of eight children.  Her parents preceded her in death.

Juanita attended Noblesville Schools and soon sought employment, working for two years at Western Electric and later at Eli Lilly Company where she had worked for over 30 years.

She was a member of Grace Community Church at Noblesville, and a founding member of West Noblesville Community Church.  She had also hosted Bible studies in her home.  She also enjoyed her membership at the Noblesville Senior Citizens Organization.

Juanita always had a positive attitude and was an encouraging person to friends and family.  She cherished lunch with friends, family gatherings, taking her grandchildren shopping and being at their events.

Her grandchildren's memories: Granddaughter Nicole recalls that no matter what you were going through, her grandma was always there with a helping hand.  She always loved unconditionally, had a big heart and a love of Jesus.  Her faith carried her through life and she wanted to make sure that everyone she met knew that.  I believe that she is now dancing with Jesus and smiling down on all of us.

Grandson Nathan remembers: Nathan will cherish the memory of Grandma Nosler being so excited and happy when we would visit her with great-grandson, Zane.  She always had a big smile when she interacted with Zane and Zane would interact with her likewise.  Nathan states "I am grateful for those times.  I also enjoyed having good conversations with her during our visits.  I will always have great memories of the things we did and the places we visited together such as our family Disney World Trip."

Grandson Noah recalls that his grandma put him in swimming lessons as a young boy.  This led to competitive swimming in middle school and high school that became like a "career".  Noah recalls that she taught him to pray and talk to Jesus daily and she influenced the course of his life more than she could have ever known.  And now it is comforting to know she is talking with Jesus face to face.

Surviving her is a daughter and her husband: Zonica (Tony) Brown of Cicero, IN, grandchildren: Nicole Rector, Nathan Brown and Noah Brown, great-grandson: Zane Brown, siblings: Jay Gerber, James Gerber and Janice Wills, plus several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents she was also preceded in death by her siblings: Joe Gerber, Josephine Pryor, Joan Rich, and Jeanettte Murphy.
