Mrs. Norma Lee Blake Gunn, age 93, was born on January 24, 1928, in Tullahoma, TN to the late Carl and Blanche Rice Blake. She was a member of the Temple Baptist Church for many years. Mrs. Norma enjoyed cross stitching, gardening, playing the organ for her family, cooking, and she loved animals. She received the Coffee County Beautification Award for her lovely front lawn. Mrs. Norma was a loving and caring individual with a kind and giving spirit. Her greatest joy came from being a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, and she loved spending time with her family.

In addition to her parents, Mrs. Norma is preceded in death by her loving husband, William Frances Gunn, infant sister, Betty Jane Blake, and her special friend, Phillip Tarver. She is survived by her children, Tena Grenell (Ronald), and Terri Williams; grandchildren, Ryan and Michael Grenell, Kimberly Thompson (Steven), Lauren Weaver (Austin), and Meredith Williams; and 13 great grandchildren.

I remember Norma from when we both worked at Park Ind. (The Cap Factory) We both worked in the shipping department at that time. I always thought she was so elegant. We shared cross stitch patterns. I remember when she and Bill lived just off of Wayside Road long ago. We also went to Temple Baptist together, long ago. We always send Christmas cards, until the last two years when I was in the hospital one year and then last year had Covid-19 all the month of December. I will miss keeping in touch with her. I still have the "Don't Sit Under the Elephant Tree" cross stitch I got from her long ago. Love and good memories and God's blessings to all her family.
