|Let the memory of Norma ("Honey") be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our precious mother, Norma Mitchell Davis ("Honey") who was born on April 16, 1926 and passed away on January 3, 2011.
Momma... We will all miss you more than our words could ever express. We pray that you will now dance again.... sing to your mother... and grow a beautiful garden in heaven.
Yesterday... the thoughts of you... and the tears of grief were too much for me to write here. It's been six years now, since you left us. I think about you every single day and wish, more than anything, you were still here. I wish I could put my arms around you... just one more time... and tell you how much I love you.
Charley and I talk about how much love you taught us... and the funny things we did with you... like singing harmony to old tunes when we were on "road trips". We remember how you use to whistle - in harmony - with us - and it always made us laugh.
Remember when Charley was running Track and you stood up and "cock-a-doodled" to tell him to "Run, Charley, Run!"?
You touched so many lives here on earth and left wonderful memories with every person who knew you.
You didn't have an easy life. There were so many difficult times you faced... but somehow you always put your own needs aside for those around you... believing that a person is only worth what they can do to help others. I know God must have you at His side now, because of your wonderful character and graciousness, here on earth.
Your legacy of selflessness and unconditional love stays with us Mom and it lives in our hearts every day. We sure do miss you."
"Hey Mom D. I'm thinking of you today as I think of you often and wish you were still here with us so that I could see your beautiful smile and share in your great stories,words of wisdom, great sense of humor, (definitely instilled in your children :), and your strength in the Lord. Thank you for your Sons continued dedicated Love for me and his family, which I know he learned from you. Love and Miss you so much."
"Think of my Sweet Mother everyday!!! Miss You Mom."
"Happy birthday grandmother. You're still loved and missed here on earth. I hope heaven its all you wanted it to be and more"
"You would be 90 today. I still think of you in some capacity everyday my sweet Mother. Your love and lessons never fade! I miss you!"
"Miss and Love You Mom!! I Think of You Every Day!! ♥♥♥♥"
"Thinking of you especially today on your birthday here on earth. I know why the Lord gave you a birthday in the springtime,...Its because he knew it would be your favorite season with the newness of life and all the beautiful flowers you would grow, Mom D. I sure miss your smile and your way of always making me feel special and loved. How blessed I am for having your son's love and respect for women due to his great upbringing.. Thank you for leaving your legacy of two wonderful children, as I am sure you well know and are smiling down from heaven. Love and Miss you Much Kat Beasley (Daughter in Law)"
"It is with love and appreciation that I think of my sister, Norma, today, her birthdate. She was truly an Angel on Earth, who cared for her mother and others to their dates of passing from this life. I have no doubt that she joined (or organized) a quire of angles in heaven. It is sad that we so often do not realize the true wonder of our family members until they are taken from us. "Honey" as she was often referred to by her mother, was irreplaceable on earth. I, her younger brother, pray that she is being remembered by her extensive family members and friends who were fortunate enough to have shared even a small part of her caring and love in their lives. GOD bless her!!!"
"Bet You and all there with in heaven are singin' and dancin' on your day today!! I know you need this flower for your hair!! ♥ Love You Mom ♥"
"I will never forget the day Norma handed me her Mary Kay business card and said call me. The funny thing was, that at that time, I was thinking about finding a consultant. Thank you Norma."

"Bet you have a new chapter of Sweet Adeline singing in Heaven Mom!! Miss You Everyday !! ♥♥ Love You ♥♥"

"Today - April 16 - would have been Mom's 87th birthday. I love and miss you momma. Think about you every day."
"Norma - a Very fun loving and caring person for others. Her reward in Heaven should be fantastic. I am sure if needs be she is still friendly , caring to others. I enjoyed many great times with her and apppreciated her positive thinking very well. Mary Lou"
"I met Norma through Mary Kay and through church at MBC. Such a sweet lady. I never knew of all the struggles she endured throughout her life but it certainly made her a beautiful person, inside and out."
"Oh yes, how well I remember the wonderful times I had with Norma especially involved with the Mary Kay groups. Also the care she took of elderly women in her home and her more than beautiful flower gardens. Yes, she will be forever missed. Mary Lou"
"Dear LouAnne, Tom & the entire family,

"Lou Ann, Tom & Family ~
Thinking fond thoughts of Norma on her birthday. We always sent her a card and it seems odd not doing that this year. She was a sweet lady."
"I still remember the day Norma handed me one of her Mary Kay business cards. I knew then that she was a very special lady. I can hear her laugh as I write this. Thank you for letting me know you Norma."
"My Mom, Norene Williams, and Norma were best friends. They had so many good times together. They sang in Sweet Adelines together, and Norma invited Mom to go with her to MBC church. Mom and I still go there. They would go out to eat together and go places together. She was there for Mom when she needed her.
Norma was a very special person and will greatly missed."
"Norma and I were good friends since the 2nd grade at Ballast Point School, when her family moved to the next block from our family. Her brother, Bobby, and my brother, Guy, were friends, too. Norma and I graduated from Plant High School in 1944 & have kept in touch ever since. To her family & friends, a prayer of heartfelt sympathy. I'm glad I knew her.
Joy Risley Crichlow, Lakeland, FL."

Will always remember Norma as she brought me to Mary Kay with her as she wanted me to learn the power of Positive Thinking. She was always an inspiration , also as she took care of so many elderly persons and they often came before her in her way of life.
also her beautiful flower gardens which were so beautiful."
"I was so fortunate to have met Norma. She became my closest friend and confidant. Norma was one of those rare people who not only saw the glass half full, she would pour the contents into a smaller glass and hand you a full one. If everything around her seemed to be crumbling, she would gather the crumbs and hand you a cake. Norma made the world a better place and me a better person. I love her."
"While I didn't know Norma very well, I do know that she made my grandfather, Bob Hamill, very happy in his later years. He would beam when he was around her, and for that I'm truly grateful. Norma's warm smile and sweet disposition will live on in my memory."
"Hello Lou Ann and Norma,
Your Mom (Norma) sure brightened up my Dad's life for several years until his death. And, perhaps vice versa. They always seemed to be laughing and kidding with each other. Always had fun with them when we visited Tampa, especially when we took them to dinner. We never knew which one would select what they would eat.
Life goes on, but the memories linger. Thanks Noma"

"I will always remember my Aunt Norma as being very beautiful. When we were children at our nanny's house we would go to the part to play (The park was several blocks away) and when it was time to come home Aunt Norma could step out on the front porch and we kids could hear her whistle for us to come home. Good memories always!Love Barbara"
"Norma; I first met you in Mary Kay where you were once a Red Jacket leader. You always had a smile and was so helpful to others. I miss your smiling face in our MBC church choir before you left. Several other MK friends and I were just speaking of you just last week. May you rest in peace in His arms."
"Grandma Davis, you were always a light to the world for this family and for all those you touched. I didn't have a whole lot of time with you in my lifetime with you, but all the times I did have, you always had words of wisdom and ways of teaching things about life that otherwise seemed unimportant. Thank you for touching my life and the lives of others that you came in contact with. We love you"
"Grandma Davis, you were a beautiful person inside and out. I have always been impressed by your strength and determination and strive to exhibit those same characteristics in my own life. You were loving and kind and always put others first. We love you very much and will miss you."
