Norma Butler Hunter, affectionately known as “Grandma” in her later years, died on August 13, 2021 after an extended illness at the age of 84 in Gallatin, Tennessee.
Norma is survived by her three sons: Kevin (Hollee), Ken (Laura), and Kerry (Michelle); the father of her children (Bobby); her three beloved grandchildren Bronson Butler, Kaelyn Butler, and Kage Butler; and her sister, Linda (Earl) Clark.
She is preceded in death by former husband (Hillard); and her parents (Joe and Corinne Harrison).
Norma was born off Red River Road in Gallatin, Tennessee on September 16, 1936. She was a devoted follower of Christ, daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was known for her kind and gentle nature which she used to show love for others – both within her family and everywhere she went. Her strongest attributes were kindness, peace, patience, joy, laughter, and an ability to forgive which knew no bounds. Her favorite past times were spending time with family, reading, puzzles, coloring, and flowers.
Her first job was at the Gallatin Bakery on the Square, and later the Gary Shirt Company.
She became a stay-at-home mother after the birth of her first child until 1980 when she felt the need to work again. She returned to work at Gallatin High School, Kroger, and Acme Boot Company. Following a move to Clarksville, she worked as a Pharmacy Technician at Kmart and Kroger for many years until retiring to care for her aging mother. She was later to serve 15 years as a Volunteer serving others at Sumner Regional Medical Center.
