Mom (Betty Noland, nee Brien) was born in 1924, married in 1950, and had two children. She passed away in 2012.[1]

She's buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

Sarah Elizabeth "Betty" Noland was born at her parents' home in the National Military Park in Vicksburg, Mississippi on 4 February 1924 to Elisha Livingston Brien and Elizabeth Watkins Brien. She died at home in Alexandria, Virginia of breast cancer on 25 April 2012.
She moved to Washington, DC, with her parents in 1933 and attended various schools in DC and graduated in 1941 from Gunston Hall School for Girls. She was school mates with Margaret Truman, Margaret Jones, and Lillian Somoza. She graduated from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi in 1944 with Majors in chemistry and mathematics. Her grandfather, Rev. A. F. Watkins, had been an early president of Millsaps for 12 years. In early 1942 she along with other young ladies from Phi Mu Fraternity helped entertain Lt Col Doolittle and his pilots who were practicing in and around Jackson for their soon-to-be-famous raid on Tokyo. As a student assistant, she graded math papers of Johnny Carson, a student in the Navy V-12 unit at Millsaps. Upon graduation, she enlisted in the Cadet Nurse Corps, a program to train nurses for the U.S. Army, and trained at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. She resigned after 6 months and was employed as a chemist at the U. S. Geological Survey, Water Resources Branch, testing quality of various rivers, until her marriage in 1950 to Peyton Noland. She devoted the rest of her life to her husband and children.
