ORANGE, Calif. — Kathryn Ellen (Green) Norris passed away peacefully Nov. 28, 2017, in Orange, Calif. She was 89. Kathy grew up in Davenport, and in 1956 moved to Orange County, California, where she raised her five children, mostly by herself. In 1980, Kathy married her soul mate, Marshall F. Norris, in Orange, Calif. Kathy and Marshall enjoyed a wonderful 25 years together before Marshall passed in 2004.
Kathy loved to laugh and always had a kind word to say about everyone. She was very giving and offered her fresh-baked delights to anyone who came to her home, and would deliver them to friends and neighbors as well. Kathy was a life-long, nurturing mother. Kathy loved family gatherings and her favorite time of the year was Christmas. She passed on her honesty and hard work ethic to her children who have all become successful in their own professions.
Kathy is survived by her sister, Marylen Jane (Green) Diercks of Mason City Iowa; her five children, Pamela, Timothy, Jonathan, Christopher and Susan Gulliver; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
