Agnes Duncan Norris 94, of Boaz peacefully passed into our Saviors arms on Tuesday August 24, 2021.
She grew up in the Great Depression with her brothers James Etheridge (Jim), Herman, Paul DeWayne and sister Juanita Duncan who all preceded her in death.
She is also preceded by her husband Tom Norris, who was the love of her life. They were married October 5th, 1942. Together they raised 4 children. Preceded were her sons Bradford Floyd and Calvin Wayne Norris. Survived by daughter Connie Norris Isley(*Jerry) and son Ronald T Norris(*Judy). She is also survived by daughter in law Patricia Lackey Norris (Calvin), ten grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
Agnes was a long time member of Plainview Baptist church (Tarrant, Al). She enjoyed serving our Savior through teaching her Sunday school class and singing in the adult choir. She had a quiet strength. She was the example of Christ’s love and acceptance to all who knew her. She was never heard to say a negative or judgmental word. She lived out the faith she believed. To those who knew her best it was a life well lived. Psalm 116:15.
Some of her families most cherished memories are her country cooking including cornbread, fried okra, fried green “Maters”, milk toast, fried tart apple pies, biscuits, tomato gravy, zucchini squash meat sauce, fried reheated leftover grits in butter and sugar, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pecan and pumpkin pies and the sticky ribbon candy on top of the freezer. Of course, the food preparation with the help of her grandchildren often happened on the yellow aluminum/Formica kids table.
Many thanks to the staff at Diversicare of Boaz for their thoughtful, attentive, and loving care of our mom during her stay while battling Alzheimer’s. We knew even when we couldn’t be with her during this Covid pandemic she was cared for.
A graveside service celebrating her life will be held Friday August 27,2021 at 1 pm in Old Zion cemetery in Nauvoo Alabama. McRae funeral home Boaz, AL directing
