Joyce M. Norris, age 80, of Old Stage Road in Erwin, passed away on Saturday, May 16, 2020 at her home. She was born in Harnett County on April 19, 1940 to the late Rodney Tadlock and the late Louise Barefoot Tadlock. In addition to her parents she is also preceded in death by her husband Earl Norris; Infant Son: Gary Jackson Norris and Son-In-Law: Mark Anthony Parrish. Joyce was the kind of person who could light up a room with that great big smile and the sparkle in her baby blue eyes. She was all the time joking around and cutting up, she could really make you laugh. She was a very social person, loving to spend all her time with her family especially the grandchildren and with her many friends. Joyce spent many hours at the Dunn Senior Center, visiting with those friends! If she wasn’t at home or hanging out at Dunn Senior Center then you knew right where to find her, Wal-Mart! She loved to do her little craft projects and sit and listen to her gospel music. Joyce leaves behind to honor her legacy, her children: Judy Parrish of Coats, Ronald Norris of Broadway, Deanna Norris of Erwin and Michael Norris of Kipling; grandchildren: Josh Parrish, Jonas Parrish and wife Candice, Simon Parrish and wife Crystal, Lenore McLamb, Thomas McLamb and wife Savannah, Aaron Travis Maxwell, Samantha Maxwell, Jeremy Penny and Brandy Penny; great-grandchildren: Kemma Parrish, Tessa Parrish, James McLamb, Tripp McLamb, Dylan Maxwell and Blake Maxwell; brother: David Tadlock of Erwin; Sister: Frances Norris Wood of Erwin; Sister-In-Law: Jeanette Butts and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Sending love and prayers to all the family. You are special to me... like an extension of my own family.
My daughter April was born on Mrs. Joyce's birthday. On the day of April's baby dedication, we ate at Campbell's cafeteria. Mrs. Joyce was working, but she sat down and held April while we went through the line. When I got back over there, she had been giving April sips of her tea.
We've always had a good laugh about that.
We could also depend on Mrs. Joyce to support our local gospel sings.
We'll see you again!
Sherry Gupton and family
