Alma Louise Norris

December 01, 1922 ‒ February 04, 2017

Bellville, Ohio

Alma Louise Norris passed away Saturday morning February 4, 2017 in Country Meadow Care Center surrounded by her family. She was 94.

She was born December 1, 1922 in Mansfield to Daniel & Freida (King) Schulte. On May 2, 1942, she married Doyle Norris and they shared 66 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 2008. Now they are together again.

In spare time, she took pleasure in flower gardening and watching the humming birds. She enjoyed working with flowers so much that she was involved with Alta’s Arrangers of Bellville.  But above all, Alma cherished spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her daughters Laurel (Russ) Barr of Ft. Smith, Ark., Pamela (Craig) Roberts and Melodie (Jeff) Rhea all of Bellville; her son Roger (Joyce) Norris of Bellville; grandchildren Jeff  (Tammi) Norris of Northport, Ala., Jodi (Chuck) Wolfgang of Bellville, Scott (Joy) Norris of Bellville, Trisha Norris of Bellville, Jeremy Barr of Toledo, Aubrey (Alex) Bishop of Ft. Smith, Ark, Lindsay (Laura) Roberts of Bellville, Emily (Jeff) McDonald of Medina and Lacy Rhea of Bellville; great grandchildren Cortney (Michael) Armstrong, Jim Wolfgang, Kaitlyn Norris, Logan Norris, Kristina Norris, Blaze Roberts, Ledger Roberts, and two on the way; siblings Robert (Sharon) Schulte, and Marilyn Buzard.

In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her parents and siblings Daniel Henry Schulte Jr., Imogene Green, James E. Schulte, and Frances Baker.

The Norris family will receive friends Wednesday, February 8, 2017 from 4-7 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where a funeral service honoring Alma’s life will take place on Thursday at 1:30 p.m. Pastor Yogi Durbin will officiate with burial to follow in Mansfield Memorial Park.
