Norma Ruth Worley

Norma Ruth Worley, 83, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, October 12, 2022.  Born and raised in Bristol, Virginia, she had been a resident of Newport News since 1971.  Norma retired from Hardee’s after 20-plus years.  She was a member of Harbor Baptist Church, Hampton, Virginia.

Norma was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Fred A. Worley, and her grandson, Jonathan R. Terrill.  She is survived by her three children, Telisa Holcomb and her husband Glen, Freddy Worley II and Brad Worley and his wife Tricia; eight grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild on the way; three sisters; and one brother.

She will also be greatly missed by her extended loving family. 

The family would like to thank Dr. Soni, Dr. Lavender, and the hospice staff for all their wonderful care.

A graveside service, officiated by Rev. C.J. Prather, will be held on Tuesday, October 18 at 11:00 a.m. in Peninsula Memorial Park.

One of Norma’s favorite bible verses was Proverbs 31:25: “Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.”

    To my granny
    You will always be my granny
    No matter wherever you go
    No matter years that pass
    Or how big and tall I grow
    Me and you will never be apart
    You will always be in my heart

  5. Ashley Tucker

    The magic of a granny’s touch
    There’s magic in a granny’s touch
    And sunshine in her smile
    There’s love in everything she does
    To make our lives worthwhile
    We can find both hope and courage
    Just by looking in her eyes
    Her laughter is a source of joy
    Her words are warm and wise
    There is a kindness and compassion
    To be found in her embrace
    And we see the light of heaven
    Shinning from a granny’s face
