Our mother was a true example of what it was be honest and treat people right. She believed in helping others. She instilled in her children the value of hard work. She worked most of her life as a book keeper and worked for over twenty years for Carlisle Funeral Home where she did all she could to keep those guys straight. Mom was known for her sense of humor and she remained sharp in her humor late into her years. She brought a certain kind of wisdom with her and shared it with those who took time to listen. She loved her family and she will truly be missed but never forgotten.
She is survived by her loving family which includes her children, son, Ricky Norville, wife, Jennifer, son, Michael Norville, wife, Gay and daughter, Teresa “Tess” Moss, fiancée, Hampton Moss. Grandchildren, Kyle Norville, wife, Jesseca, Scott Norville, wife, Becca, Kaylyn Norville and Michaela Norville. She is also survived by a sister in-law, JoAnn Pollard.
