Obituary

Betty D. Norman

Betty D. Norman, 77, of Jarratt, passed away Saturday, August 19, 2017. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward C. Norman and a daughter, Renee’ N. Swiger. Mrs. Norman is survived by a son, Edward L. Norman and wife, Angela of Chester; daughter, Lesha L. Booden of Jarratt; three grandchildren, Amanda Stepp and husband, Andrew, Tommy Norman and Carly Norman; great-grandson, Mattox; a brother, Roger Dowdy and wife, Judy of Christiansburg, VA; two sisters, Linda Wallace of CT and Susan Martin and husband, Danny of Woolwine, VA and a number of nieces and nephews. Mrs. Norman was retired from the Norfolk Police Department. She had a talent for embroidery, stitching, and enjoyed fashioning crafts.

Her family trusts that Mom is on her next journey, with God, and envisions her picking flowers, one of her great joys in this life.

A private memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to the American Diabetes Association.
