Virginia “Dean” Noto

September 10, 1928 – June 19, 2018

Dean went to her heavenly home on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at the age of 89. She was a native of Greensburg and a resident of Independence. Dean was a member of 1st Baptist Church of Independence. She was also a member of the Lady’s Auxiliary of the American Legion. Dean was a social butterfly and really enjoyed hosting parties and get togethers at her home. She loved to admire all of God’s small creations like flowers, birds, and butterflies. Dean was a wonderful cook and made memorable meals for her family and friends. She was the true definition of what a lady should be; beautiful and kind. Dean was a very giving and loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. She is already so deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Noto; daughters, Pamela Cox (Michael), Charlene Russell (Robert), Patricia Klahorst (Chris), and Deborah Bankston (Jerry); step-daughter, Lola Scicluna (Billy); son, Charles Thomas Jr (Carlette); step-sons, Paul Noto, and John Frank Noto; sister, Linda Carol Phillips; 31 grandchildren; and 30 great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Nathan and Ruby Guy; her 1st husband, Charles N. Thomas Sr; brothers, Homer Guy, Robert Guy, and Kenneth Guy; great-granddaughter, Elizabeth Thomas; and step-son, Vic Joe Noto.
