Georgia Lee (Betty) VanNorstran went home to be with her savior, Jesus Christ, on July 4th, 2019. In life, she was a beautiful, honest and loving woman who touched the lives of many people with her laughter and spirit. She enjoyed talking about God’s love, and frequently discussed what joy heaven would bring and what it would be like. Betty enjoyed telling people of her many blessings and how proud she was of her family. With her passing, she is overjoyed to be reunited with her late husband, Bob, as well as all the loved ones that have preceded her in death.
One of Betty’s passions was worshipping the Lord through song and prayer each week at a local nursing home and attending church services regularly. In her spare time, Betty could often be found petting her cat, Patches, or planting flowers and watching the birds and squirrels play in her yard.
Betty was a sweet and gentle soul who always welcomed others with a smile on her face and a cup of coffee in her hand. She was an active member of The Oliver Springs Church of God of Prophecy.

Husband, Bobby Ray VanNorstran.
