She was an amazing unique lady who loved outside of earthly borders. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend she was adored by many! This was very evident in the large number of visitors she received and welcomed in her final days.
Norma loved the beauty of her flowers, the sound of her birds and hoot owls. Any chance to fellowship with her friends and family was the highlight of her days! One of her most cherished memories were her fishing trips with her sister, Ethel.
She and her husband were co-owners of Tomlin Flying Service for many years. Norma also retired from Farmers Supply in Altheimer after 12 years of faithful service. She was a member of East Side Baptist Church where she enjoyed many close friendships.
Norma was preceded in death by George Tomlin, her beloved husband of 43 years; parents, Will and Elizabeth Embree Bryant; brothers, Walter Will, Archie, and Cleatis Bryant; sisters, Ethel Mullikin and Nora McPherson.
