Marcia E. Norris, 78, Mexico, passed away at 7:45 a.m. on Friday, April 15, 2022, at her residence.
Born January 25, 1944, in Peru, Indiana, she was the daughter of Herbert H. Kline and A. Josephine Sutton Kline. On March 8, 1964, at the Mexico Baptist Church, she was married to Harrold E. “Bud” Norris, and he survives.
She was a lifelong member of the Mexico Baptist Church and was a 1962 graduate of North Miami High School. Her entire working career was spent in banking, starting at Peru Trust Company and retiring from Wells Fargo, working at branches in Peru and Mexico. She enjoyed sewing and crafting with her friends, “The Hens.” Her greatest pleasure was camping with her family, enjoying time near Myrtle Beach and Gun Lake. At one time she was a member of the local Home Economics Club, and in her later years enjoyed countless hours behind the sewing machine making things for others. Marcia made sure that nobody ever left her home with an empty stomach; she took great pride in her family meals.
Survivors include her husband, Harrold “Bud” Norris, Mexico; two children, Troy (Tina) Norris, Mexico; Toby (Julie) Norris, Rochester; four grandchildren, Sara Norris, Peru; Breanna Townsend, Peru; Levi Norris, Bunker Hill; Rebekah Lowe, Warsaw; six great-grandchildren, Julianna Batdorf, Mexico; Madilyn and Shelbi Black, Peru; Kahlee Ward, Peru; Keyara and Keedan Norris, Bunker Hill; one sister, Jill (Charley) Fisher, Peru; and one brother, Dean (Tacy) Kline, Kokomo; and several brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
