Noah Christian McMonigal

Noah Christian McMonigal, affectionately known as “Bug”, age 8, of 121 Willow Road, St. Marys, earned his angel wings and passed away peacefully with family surrounding him on December 24, 2019.

He was born on April 27, 2011, in DuBois, son of Christian and Jennifer Belsole McMonigal, who survive.

Noah attended school at home in his therapy room instructed by several dedicated and loving therapists who came to be part of his family. He possessed a beautiful soul filled with a determined spirit, strength, unconditional love, and innocence. During his short time on earth, he touched countless lives and warmed many hearts with his big blue eyes, endless eyelashes, and thick luscious hair. The tireless, loving, and selfless devotion from his nurses was heartwarming and embraced by Noah every day. He enjoyed doing crafts with his teacher, Melinda, and his weekly massage with Becky. Horseback riding, swimming, sitting by the fire, and sunny days lounging on his deck were some of his favorite activities. He also loved going on Ranger rides with his PaPa, Grammie, and his dog Snickers. He looked forward to his daily visits from his PaPa Butch and his trips to the Benedum Center for musicals with his family. His favorite time was spent in his mommy’s arms and he really enjoyed “Guy” time with his daddy!

In addition to his parents, Noah is survived by his maternal grandparents, G.T. and Debbie Umbaugh Belsole of St. Marys; his paternal grandfather, Christ McMonigal of Greencastle, PA; his paternal grandmother, Linda Ferruzzi McMonigal of Philipsburg, PA; his maternal great-grandmother, Rose Belsole of St. Marys; maternal great-grandfather, John Umbaugh of St. Marys; and by several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Noah was preceded in death by his maternal great-grandfather, Michael Belsole; his maternal great-grandmother, Josephine Umbaugh; paternal great-grandparents, Christ and Donna McMonigal; and paternal great-grandparents, William and Adeline Ferruzzi.

There will be no visitation

Family and friends are invited to attend a Mass celebrating Noah’s life in the Queen of the World Church on Saturday, December 28, 2019, at 11:00 AM with Rev. Jeffery Noble, Pastor, officiating and Father Kurt Belsole, OSB concelebrating.  Burial will follow in the St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Memorials, if desired, may be made to Ronald McDonald House, 451 44th Street, Pittsburgh, PA  15201.

Noah was my great nephew whom I never got to meet personally but I felt that I new him thru his pictures. Those big beautiful eyes and beautiful long lashes. His parents were the best parents any little boy could asked for. He was loved unconditionally. He is now a little angel of God may he rest.

Jen and Christian,
I have no words to comfort you. I just want to thank you for allowing me to be part of Noah’s life and help him…..even though that little guy was completely a wet noodle EVERY time I came to see him! My job gives me a great privilege to touch special children’s lives every day! He has touched so many people in so many ways ….we are all blessed to have known him! May he be with you and give you his incredible strength as you try to move forward. Take comfort in knowing that you gave him a world filled with unconditional love and self sacrifice. I have never met a more devoted family in all my years as a therapist. Noah was blessed to have you. Sending many hugs and prayers to you! God Bless…Merri Shrefler

Dear Noah’s family,
You have my deepest sympathy during this time of need. May you find comfort and peace as you fondly remember loving moments of Noah. Please know that you have a loving angel guiding you here on Earth. I have 2 beautiful memories that I’d like to share with you: seeing Noah in his Orange Kindergarten shirt for the first time on my phone that you kindly sent to me; and, having the class sing Happy Birthday to him on video. He touched many lives at such a young age, and it was a privilege and honor to be a part of his public education.
Please take care and know that you are all in my prayers and thoughts.
Mrs. Rebecca Krug
SSMSES Kindergarten Teacher
