Racine Horlick Alumni 1965

Judith Ellen Noll

LAS VEGAS, NEV. - Judith Ellen Noll, 60, a Racine native, who fought a courageous 15-year battle against Multiple Sclerosis, died Friday, May 2, 2008. Born on November 29, 1947, Judith graduated from Horlick High School in 1965 and then attended Denver University. After college, Judith moved to Chicago, Ill., where she worked for several years as a Buyer for Carson Pirie Scott. She then obtained her license as a Stock Broker at a time when few women worked in the field. She joined Mesirow Financial in 1974 and stayed until her health forced her to retire in 2002. "She was a big part of our life," friend and Mesirow co-worker Marc Liebson said. "She knew this company from top to bottom and even planned a number of our holiday parties. She was truly part of the Mesirow Financial family." After retirement, Judith moved to Las Vegas, Nev., where she enjoyed the warm weather and the glitz of the Strip. Her family will miss her great sense of humor. Judith is survived by her mother, Miriam Noll; her brother, Thomas Noll of Denver, Colo.; her sister, Lisa (John) Graves of Larkspur, Colo.; her niece, Rachel Graves of New York, N.Y.; and nephew, Garrett Noll of Denver, Colo. She was preceded in death by her father, Eugene Noll.
