OBITUARY - NORMA EILENE (HAILEY) EDGERTON

Norma Eilene (HAILEY) EDGERTON, age 78, of Mount Ayr, Iowa, formerly of Chariton, Iowa, died December 14, 2000, at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr.

Norma was born January 22, 1922, on a farm near Ellston, Iowa, to Henry Erm and Etta Belle (SHIELDS) HAILEY, and lived on a farm near Shannon City, Iowa.

During World War II she worked as a nurses' aide in Creston, Iowa, where she met Willard EDGERTON. They were married on July 5, 1945, in San Jose, California. Over the next 20 years, they lived in a number of small towns in Iowa while raising three children, Larry born in 1946, Karen born in 1950 and Linda born in 1951.

A high point in Norma's life came when she received her licensed practical nursing degree in 1969.

She lived in Chariton, Iowa before returning to Mount Ayr three months ago to enter the Clearview Nursing Home.

Norma was preceded in death by her parents; her husband in 1998; her sister Velma DRAKE in 1975; and her brother Gerald HAILEY in 1998.

Survivors include a son Larry and his wife Carol EDGERTON of Madison, Wisconsin; two daughters, Karen BOX of Dallas, Texas, and Linda and her husband Lou STANISLAO of Oviedo, Florida; a brother Lowell and his wife Pearl HAILEY of Greenfield, Iowa; and five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Services were held on Saturday, December 16, 2000, at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home of Mount Ayr with Reverend Charles HAWKINS officiating. Musicians were Debbie CANNON, Mary TRULLINGER and Margaret BICKERS. Casket bearers were Lou STANISLAO, Dennis HAILEY, Donald CLOSE, Lloyd DRAKE, Gary HAILEY and Herb WARRICK.

Norma was laid to rest in the Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr. A memorial in Norma's name has been established to the Ringgold County Group Home in Mount Ayr.
