Her favorite pastime was sitting on the front porch, reading, spending quality time with family and friends, and watching Alabama football.

She always lived by the “Golden Rule”. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Granny was the matriarch of the family. She loved all and was loved by all and will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

There was no one in this world like Aunt Norma. She was dynamite in a small package. She was the best wife, mother, and granny that a family could ask for; her family was everything. When my son was a toddler, and we were living in AL, she came and picked him up every day to go ride “Uncle Fall’s tractor”. She was the definition of a sacrificial giver. She is with her beloved son,Frankie, now, and her joy is full. Always loved, precious Aunt Norma.
