Norma was born on March 2, 1931, in Floyd County, Va., the first of four children born to B.C. and Fannie Wilson. She grew up on a farm in Floyd County and had a strong work ethic, a compassionate heart and an independent character. Norma was a one-of-a-kind cook who delighted in preparing meals for both family and church gatherings. Her talents, however, were not limited to the kitchen -- as she was an avid gardener who could often be found outside tending to, and arranging, her flowers. For many years, Norma was a nursing assistant at Skyline Manor Nursing Home and had a deep compassion for the residents, for whom she would often prepare her renowned homemade bread. Norma was a member of Thompson Grove Primitive Baptist Church in Roanoke County. She loved her church very dearly and looked forward to church meetings, loving the fellowship that she had with them. The family would like to recognize the dedicated care that she received from the staff at South Roanoke Nursing Home. The care that these wonderful, compassionate people gave to her in her final days was a huge comfort to Norma and her family. The family also wishes to recognize Dr. Vishal Patel of Carilion Clinic for the superb care that he gave to Norma, and for the kindness and empathy that he showed to her and her family. Funeral Services will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, at Head of the River Primitive Baptist Church in Copper Hill, Va., with Elder Junior Conner officiating.
