We were neighbors back in the 70’s. Loved her and her boys. I haven’t seen her in years but have thought of them often. She was funny ,kind and loving. My condolences to her family

She was nice to me when i was a little kid back in the early-mid 60's when my parents and i visited her Grandmother Betty in Lynchburg, and 15 years later when i was visiting, got to go out to lunch with her, (Junior's daughter?) and her boys as she showed me around Lynchburg. She was a good person and i am sorry i have not been able to come back down before this. To her family, please accept my sympathy for your loss. My mother was either Norma's first or second cousin, and was a little girl when my mother still lived in Lynchburg.

This picture reminds me of the young Norma, so full of life and I don’t care what anyone thinks. You never knew what would come out of her mouth next. As she got older, she still took life as if it the world was on fire and she didn’t give a hoot. Always ready for a laugh even through all she went through. Love and going to miss you my friend . At least whenever I think of you, I can say she made me laugh no matter what I was going through. Still got the picture of you on my phone eating soup through a straw at Golden Corral. So many happy memories.
