June 24, 1942-April 10, 2019
Patsy Ruth Fulford Norris passed away in Dillon, MT on April 10, 2019 at home surrounded by her children. She was born June 24, 1942 in Helena, MT to Virginia Fulford and Mac Fulford. She spent her childhood on the family ranch in Sheridan and later moved to Glen, MT where she lived with Art and Myrtle Reichle. She attended Beaverhead County High School where she met and later married Ronnie Norris. Together they raised 4 children in Melrose. After her and Ronnie divorced, she moved to Boulder, MT and started working at the Boulder River School and Hospital. She spent the next 26 years sharing her special brand of love with the residences there.
Patsy loved spending time in her yard planting flowers in her garden and decorating for the various holidays. But above all her greatest love and joy was her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In Grandma Pat’s world, there was no such thing as a “step” child. All children were welcomed with open arms and never once doubted how much she loved them. She is leaving behind a living legacy of young adults that were blessed to have been touched by her love.
She was preceded in death by her parents and Art and Myrtle Reichle.
She is survived by sisters, Debbie Walker and Connie Carter and brother, Larry Fulford; daughters, Lisa (Leo) Jimenez of Dillon, MT, and Tonya (Travis ) Hauck of East Helena, MT; sons, Randy (Alison) Norris of Dillon, MT and Jamie Norris of Dillon, MT; 18 grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.
Funeral Services will be held in Dillon MT at the Brundage Funeral Home on Monday April 15th, 2019 at 1:00 pm with graveside interment to follow.
