Norma was regular customer at our flea market in Beebe, and we became friends though the years, she was just a fun lady. She even took me of a tour at one time of her other favorite flea markets. She had fun finding things she thought her family and friends would like. We shared books as a love in our lives, and traded books at times. She was such a dear lady, I know that she so loved her children, and grands, etc. She will be missed by many who knew her. I know her family was blessed from having such a delightful mother, God bless each family member.
She was a very special woman
Love this woman dearly. She was a dear friend and we will miss her greatly. Fly high Norma and sleep well.
Such a joy to be around ! Will miss her so much.
She was a great friend and I will miss her.
I had the privilege of meeting Norma Jean when we worked together at Wal-Mart.
She introduced me to the joys of Flea Marketing. We spent many happy hours flea marketing and going to the movies and the Arkansas Symphony Concerts. Of course, these outings included a good meal! Thoughts of Norma always bring a smile to my face. I remember our good times together and what an amazing woman she was. Norma always had a positive outlook on life and was a joy to be around. Rest in Peace, my Friend, You’ve earned it!
