Norma was born September 15, 1945 in Corsicana, Texas to Raymond Ray and Sally Elizabeth (Lawson) Watson. Mexia has been home her entire life. She worked for most of the convenient stores in the Mexia/Groesbeck area for many years, the last being Don’s in Groesbeck. She also helped her friend, Jerry McMinn, mow yards.
When Norma wasn’t working, she enjoyed spending time with family, friends and her cats. She loved her cats and they always received extra special treatment. She will be remembered by those she met while working in the local stores and truly missed by her loving family.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Raymond and Sally Watson; and brothers, Jerry Don and Raymond “Ray” Watson.
Norma is survived by her truly special friend of many years, Jerry McMinn of Mexia; brothers, Larry Wayne Watson of Elgin, OK and William C. “Bill” Watson and wife, Dixie of Fairfield; sister-in-law, Terry Watson; special cousin, Paul Barrett and wife, Debra Hays of Mexia; and several nieces and nephews.
