BUNDLED in a pink plaid robe, the mother who killed more of her babies than any in American history was propped on a worn easy chair in her West Kensington living room, waiting to die.
Marie Noe smothered eight of her infants, one after another, over a 19-year span, ending in 1968.
If not for her own hands, Noe would be surrounded by grandchildren. Instead she lives alone with her cat, Blackie.
Her husband of 61 years, Arthur "Art" Noe, who always believed that his wife was innocent - even after she pleaded guilty - died in his sleep of heart disease at their modest house on American Street near Tioga two days after Christmas.
