April 27, 2006: Kay Noble passed away from Carcinoma cancer of the stomach at the age of 65…Donna Lemke wrote (July 2008): Most of us woman wrestlers were “lost” in the shadows of the men wrestlers. It is great that you and your group are willing to give us our spot. We didn’t make the money that the men did, but we took the bumps and lumps the same as they did. Women and the midgets were gimmics to boost the sales when needed. Its a money making business. I was in a match with Kay Noble and she went over the top rope and hit the floor wrong and broke her foot. We still had towns booked to go to, and she wrestled with the broken foot in her boot. She had a cast put on after the last two matches. Dicky Murdoch would carry her on his shoulders to the ring and when she got into the ring, he would come at me with his legs wide set, I would run through his legs, drop kick him into Kay and she could sell the leg. I was the babyface,they both were the heels at that time. We some how got through those matches. What a trooper. Kay was her middle name. Malita (not sure if spelled correct) was what her mom called her and she hated it. I don’t know if she ever had it legally changed.
