Cancer Survivors speak at this weekend's Noble County Relay For Life





Two cancer survivors will share their stories of hope at the Noble County Relay For Life, coming up this weekend at the West Noble High School track and field.


Bev Fitzpatrick, who’s lived in Noble County for 29 years, will be speaker at the Survivor Ceremony at 5 p.m. Saturday. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in October, 2011; just a year earlier, Bev retired from her job as elementary physical education teacher at East Noble Community Schools. Her husband, John, is a retired principal and elementary teacher for Central Noble Schools, and they have a son, daughter, and three grandchildren.


Bev Goss will talk about her battle with cancer during the Fight Back Ceremony, at 9 p.m. This Bev is owner of Goss Grocery in Big Lake and a member of the Big Lake Church of God, and has lived in Noble County for 42 years. After being a nurse for Parkview Hospital for 41 years, she retired in 2012 to enjoy her 12 grandchildren and 3 great-grandkids.


Please join us to hear from these inspiration ladies and fight back against the scourge of cancer. The Noble County Relay For Life is still looking for donations and help, and everyone is welcome to attend the event, which lasts from 10 a.m. Saturday, May 18th, to 10 a.m. the following morning.


For more information contact Melissa Stephens at or by phone at 260-471-3911, or Carla Fiandt at the Community State Bank in Albion, at, or 260-636-3744.
