Obituary of Grace Lillian Noble-Jasper

Please share a memory of Grace to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Grace Noble-Jasper, 90, of Atlantic City, New Jersey, transitioned peacefully on November 26, 2022, at home surrounded by family. She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Georgette (nee' Lewis) and Ralph Noble. Grace and her sister, Suzanne "Sue", moved to Atlantic City at a young age. Grace attended both the local public and private schools. Atlantic City was home for Grace. However, she did live in Las Vegas, Nevada for a brief period. But soon, the neon lights of "Sin City" faded. Grace found that she had "sand in her shoes," and returned back to her beloved Atlantic City, which she has resided ever since. "Gracie" as she was affectionately called by her family, held many interesting careers – during World War II she worked in a factory in New York City doing her part to support America's war efforts as so many other American women did while her husband was drafted into service to fight on the frontlines. At the end of the war, Gracie found employment at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center (NAFEC) as a simulated pilot for the United States Government – continuing her patriotic service. After her career as a simulated pilot, Gracie became a boatbuilder. She became the lead technician in the Pacemaker Boat Yard. In between her career as a "drone Pilot" and shipbuilding, Gracie found time to start a family. She marries John Jasper and together they have two children, Anthony James Jasper and Gail Jasper. Still exploring different career paths, when the casino wave hit Atlantic City, Gracie, never one not to challenge herself, used her brains and moxie to become a Slot Mechanic Engineer for Playboy Casino International. Grace would jokingly and passionately call herself "Amazing Grace." Some of her favorite hobbies were: bowling in various leagues, traveling internationally, playing cards on the tournament level, horseback riding, practicing Judo, and of course dancing. She enjoyed dancing to every Motown hit ever produced. Gracie loved the holidays and would not let distance deter her. She would travel to ski in Lake Placid area, go sight-seeing at the Grand Canyons, or just to escape to the Poconos. She also explored many ports and plazas along the Mexican Coasts and throughout the Caribbean. Though she enjoyed the sunlit beaches, Gracie did not mind traveling North to Canada. She frequently enjoyed trips to Toronto and Montreal. She is predeceased by: her ex-husband and friend, John Jasper, who was the first African American Fire Chief for the City of Atlantic City; her parents, Georgette and Ralph Noble; and sister, Suzanne "Sue" Kathryn King. "Amazing Gracie" a beloved woman, leaves to cherish her memories: her son, Anthony James Jasper; daughter and caregiver, Gail Jasper; step-daughter, Maudeen Jasper Woodton; grandsons, Eric Woodton, Ka'wand Anthony Jasper and Jamar Bishop; granddaughter and caregiver, Meisha Grace Jasper; special great-granddaughter, My'Kiera Mitchell, who Gracie helped raise; several beautiful great-grandchildren; a host of other family members and friends. Funeral services to celebrate her life will be 11AM December 6, 2022, at Greenidge Funeral Home, 301 Absecon Boulevard, Atlantic City, New Jersey, where family and friends may view from 9:30AM to 11AM. Interment to follow in the Greenwood Cemetery, Pleasantville, New Jersey. Arrangements are entrusted to Greenidge Funeral Homes, Inc., Atlantic City, New Jersey, where condolences may be left at www.greenidgefuneralhomes.com
