Noal Lee is preceded in death by her precious husband, Welton Brasuell, and five brothers and five sisters.

Noal Lee Brasuell was a strong Christian lady who loved her God and her family with all her heart and soul. She lived and served with excellence. There was never a wife, mother, grandmother or friend who loved more fiercely or was more devoted than she was.

Over the seasons of her life, Noal Lee had many experiences and made many friends. She and her family left their home in New Braunfels, TX to help establish a church in Port Lavaca, TX. From that point forward, God opened the doors and they walked through them, never looking back. They served at Pentecostal Bible Institute in Tupelo, MS, for four years, Texas Bible College in Houston, TX, over 20 years, as well as serving in churches in McComb, MS, Lufkin, TX, and Jacksonville, TX.

It would be impossible to count how many lives Noal Lee Brasuell has touched. She taught by example. She sacrificed with joy. Her greatest passion was to make an impact on the lives of others. Souls were won to Christ, then their families were won, and it continues today as her amazing family continues the work she so loved.

The family will receive friends for a visitation from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. and the Home-going Celebration will begin at 2 p.m. on Monday, June 15, 2020 at Greater Life Church, 134 Enchantment Lane, New Braunfels, TX. Interment will be at Guadalupe Valley Memorial Cemetery, New Braunfels, TX. Arrangements have been entrusted to Autry Funeral Home, Jacksonville, TX.
