Norma Lee Fink Snotherly, 91, passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home on October 6, 2019. Born on March 1, 1928 in Beckley, West Virginia; she was the daughter of the late A. Ray Fink and Ella Pearl Carper Fink and wife of the late Joseph Eugene Snotherly.

Joe and Norma were both hairdressers and together owned and operated Sir Walter Beauty Salons in the Raleigh area for many years. After his passing, Norma transferred their business to a family friend – owner of Mitchell Hair Salons and School. Following her retirement, Norma was able to focus on being a “Granny” to her five grandchildren and later on a “GiGi” for her two great-grandchildren. When able, she was an active member of Westover United Methodist Church - helping with the church flowers and any crafting project needed. She was an avid quilter and was well known for her deliciously made pound cakes.

Norma is survived by her son; Lynn Snotherly and Jenny Snotherly, of Raleigh; daughter: Rhonda Bailey-Remchak and husband Steve, of Angier; daughter: Karen Snotherly-Henning, of Fuquay-Varina; grandchildren: Bryce and Jarrett Snotherly, Erin Ellis and husband Daniel, and Allison and Avery Henning; great-grandsons: Ethan and Dylan Ellis; and by a brother and his family: Phil Nichols.

I loved Norma she was moms best friend and she was such a wonderful lady. When I was pregnant she would bring me lunch and sit with me. I loved our neighborhood growing up and all the memories we had. I know your heart is hurting. She loved her family very much and always told mom how much they meant to her.

Lynn, Karen, and Rhonda - my heart aches for all of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you travel this journey. My memories of Barclay Drive and all of our neighbors there are truly special. I made one of your Mom's recipes this weekend. She shared so many but the breakfast casserole is one of my favorites. I made one for us and one for a friend with a sick child. Thought of Norma while I was cooking.

So sorry for your families loss. I feel as though I’ve lost a family member as I have known Mrs.Norma about my whole life. What a beautiful woman. You’re mom’s strength was admired and kindness was always appreciated. My prayers are for comfort and peace for all who loved her during this difficult time.
