She will be remembered by her beloved children: Bill (Deanna Jones) Raglin and Debbie (the late Stoney) Matlack; her granddaughter Carrie (Adam) Willauer and great-grandchildren: Carson and Corin Willauer.

Norma is preceded in death by her husbands: Billy T. Raglin and Dewey Stage; son Larry Raglin; great-granddaughter Addison Willauer; sister Neva Bryant and longtime companion William Frierson.

  • Your lose has caused great sadness in my heart, we are never ready, for forever physical goodbyes, nor the lonely hole it leaves in our heart and whole life. Know you and your families are daily in my prayers, and praying God will hold your hearts and thoughts thru the days and nights in times to be ahead. Love to all. Hugs Joan.

  • Words can not express how very sorry we were to hear of Norma’s passing. We were Norma and Bill’s neighbors on Cottswold Drive in Delaware. We loved talking with them & frequently enjoyed delicious tomatoes & onions that they would share with us from their garden. Your mom was such a kind, caring & thoughtful lady. They were perfect neighbors and wonderful friends! They loved watching our little boys grow to be toddlers & were so very kind to all of us. May God ease your pain & sorrow and give you comfort and peace. Memories of your mom will always warm our hearts and minds. We were honored to know her & call her our friend. Love & prayers to you all.
    Love, Rita, Jeff, Troy, Tyler & Travis Seese

    • Thank you for your kind words. It means so much to the family. My mother thought you all were wonderful. She loved those little boys. They tickled her so
