Obituary for Dorothy Peacock Norris

Dorothy P. Norris
February 14, 1920 - December 4, 2018

Kinston-Dorothy Peacock Norris, 98, peacefully passed away in the early morning hours of Tuesday, December 4, 2018. Dorothy was born February 14, 1920 in Wayne County to the late William I. Peacock and Thenia Ham Peacock. Her husband, Henry P. Norris; and a daughter, Linda N. Owens, preceded her in death.

A true Southern lady, life for Dorothy revolved around her family and their needs. She was a homebody and nothing was better for her than a family get together and being surrounded by those she loved. Her family always looked forward to sitting around her table for good food and fellowship. Her homemade chicken pastry was second to none.

When you visited Dorothy she insisted you eat. There was a good chance she wouldn’t allow you to leave before nibbling on something. Unheard of in today’s time, Dorothy never had a drivers license. Home was where her heart was.

Dorothy was the type who always looked for the best in others and was one to never utter anything negative. Her positive outlook was an inspiration to her family. She enjoyed crochet and loved working word puzzles.

A graveside service to celebrate Dorothy’s life will be held Friday, December 7, 2018 at 2 p.m. at Westview Cemetery.

Dorothy is survived by four children, Henry C. Norris and wife, Marsha, Lewis H. Norris and wife, Judy, Tryphon D. Norris and wife, Teresa, and Billie J. Norris; ten grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

Family and friend will be received Friday following the graveside service. Online condolences may be expressed at Arrangements are entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home.
