Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Norma Eason, age 86, passed peacefully on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.  Norma was an enthusiastic friend to all.  She lived each day providing unconditional love and support for her children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends.  Her thoughts and prayers were for peace and happiness for all.  And, for KU basketball.  Laughter, song and the phrase “God Bless that Child” or God Bless (fill in the name) all sprang from her heart daily.  Everyone received the benefit of the doubt and the hope that Life would treat them well.  Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren received a much larger dose of unconditional love than the rest of us. 

Norma was born on June 22, 1932.  She is survived by two of her children, Dale Eason and Margo (Andy) Schlewitz, 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.  

She is preceded in death by her beloved daughter, Anne Marie Eason Smithey.  

Norma worked at the regional office of the Internal Revenue Service for 32 years where she worked in many positions including in the improbable role of Public Relations officer.  Norma studied and became fluent in American Sign Language in order to better serve her co-workers.  

A beautiful woman of strength, intelligence and civility, she taught those values to her children by example and exemplified the same values professionally.  Her laughter, sharp wit and humor, active empathy and smile will be missed in this world.  God bless you, Norma!

    To the family and loved ones of Norma Eason, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at Revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. Death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So, you can take great comfort from drawing close to God in prayer. He will help sustain and support all of you to endure during these difficult times. My deepest condolences.
