Noreen Marx


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our sister, Noreen Marx, spouse of Rev. William “Bill” Marx, died on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.
Noreen was a faithful companion as her husband served the following United Methodist churches in the state of California:  Kings Beach, Church of the Mountain in Truckee, First in Corcoran, First in Arcata, Sebastopol, Trinity in Chico and Tice Valley in Walnut Creek until retiring in 1997.
Noreen was very active with various women’s groups including the United Methodist Women through which she was a strong advocate for expressing one’s faith through missions. She was an avid reader, and especially enjoyed reading mysteries.
She is survived by her husband, Rev. Bill Marx of Windsor CA, and by her children, Elizabeth Aiken of Kelseyville CA, Katharine Marx Stein of Oakland CA, and Stephanie Hobbs of Windsor CA, by 4 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Condolences may be sent to Rev. Bill Marx at 9525 Camelot Drive, Windsor, CA  95492.
A memorial service will be held at Santa Rosa United Methodist Church, at a time to be determined.
Gifts in memory of Noreen may be sent to the United Methodist Committee on Relief, UMCOR, by going to or mailing your contribution to:

Let us continue to give God thanks for Noreen’s life and witness and hold her family close in prayer.  In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)
