She also loved singing and dancing and enjoyed her time performing with the Round Rock Community Choir. She dearly loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren and enjoyed supporting them at their activities. You would often find her at the softball field, tennis court, concert hall or wherever they were, and she was one of the loudest in the "cheering section".

She is proceeded in death by son Glenn Birdwell, granddaughter Hillary Robinett, brothers Wilburn “Sonny” Melber and Milton Melber, and special longtime friend Albert Amezquita.

Nora Lee is survived by son Dale Birdwell, daughter Terri Beck and husband Jim, daughter Conni Robinett and husband David, daughter in-law Jeri Birdwell, sister Junell Paul and husband Leroy, sister Lillian Mueller, grandchildren Blake Birdwell and wife Sophie, Tyson Birdwell, Tiffany Birdwell, Steven Law and Evin Cooper, Adam Law, Aubri Clements, Jessica Leal, Jordan Clements, Morgan Clements and Allison Robinett, great grandchildren Tristan Brooks, Marian Law, Josey Law, Bridger Birdwell, Isabella Leal, Adrian Leal and Tayler Painter.

I remember her as one of my favorite aunts on my father side of the family... as a little girl when the Birdwell's got together she was always kind to me , I thought she was so beautiful inside and out. My prays are with you.

I grew up with Terri and Conni and were neighbors of the Birdwell’s throughout the 70’s and 80’s. I remember her always being involved with neighborhood functions and her kids activities. After I moved away and would come home to visit, I would always stop to talk when I saw her working in her yard. I last saw her this summer when I was in town and found her on her daily walk through the neighborhood. We had a good long talk about the old neighborhood. She was a fixture in the Allandale neighborhood for as long as I can remember and will be dearly missed. My condolences to all of her family.

I will fondly remember my Aunt Nora Lee's, stunning singing voice, her unique and adventurous style and glorious smile. We should all hope to be as lovely, both inside and out as she was. Rest well.
