In Loving Memory of
Sibyl Eloise Norris
(1919 - 2012)
Sibyl Eloise Norris was born to William and Kathryn White in Natoma, Kansas on Nov. 29, 1919. She was the eldest daughter with four sisters, Elizabeth, Elaine, Kathleen, Wilma and one brother, Richard. Eloise was preceded in death, by her parents, sisters Elizabeth and Elaine, husband Thaine A. Norris and daughter-in-law, Judy.
Eloise, as she liked to be called, was a very talented woman. She kept the books for Norris & Sons Drilling Co. while raising five rambunctious sons. She was a Realtor and broker for many years in Boulder. She became a Master Bridge player. She loved square dancing, round dancing and won many trophies for ball room dancing.
Thaine and Eloise were proud parents of Terry (Jan),Verlin (Judy), Ken (Joni), Darrel (Jane, Ann) and Daniel (Nan, Ginny). There are 16 Grandkids and spouses, 28 Great Grandkids, & 5 Great, Great Grandkids. Many, many nieces, nephews, and dear family members survive.
We celebrated her 90th Birthday at her home at Golden West Retirement, where she lived for many years. In 2011, she moved to Good Samaritan Society in Estes Park, CO, still playing bridge twice a week, just before her passing on June 20, 2012.
A service to celebrate her life will be held on Saturday, June 30, at 1pm at Darrell Howe Mortuary in Lafayette, CO. Interment and graveside services will follow at Mtn. View Cemetery, Boulder, CO, where she will be placed beside "the love of her life," Thaine. Visitation will be held on Friday, June 29, from 5 to 7pm at the funeral home.
