Norma, or “Aunt I Jean” as she was also known met a serviceman at Ft. Stewart, Georgia and moved to Elizabethton, his hometown. She retired from Montgomery Ward after 43 years of service. She started with Montgomery Ward in Elizabethton then transferred to Kingsport when the business in Elizabethton closed. Norma was a member of First Christian Church and an active member of the Fidelis Class- she enjoyed special roles within her Sunday School Class. She was also an avid supporter of the Carter County Car Club as well as the East Tennessee Classic T-Bird Club, which she enjoyed for many years. Norma enjoyed taking vacations at Roan Mountain and to Tybee Island with her family.
Those left to cherish Norma’s many memories include many nieces, nephews, cousins and her remaining Hodge sisters – Geraldean, Glenna and Johnnie.
