Norma Adamson entered heavens gates on Thursday, April 5, 2018 with her daughter Rita holding her hand. Norma was born Dec. 31, 1930 to Clarence and Adalene Thomason in Marion, Ind.
She married Lewis Adamson on Dec, 24, 1948. They moved their family to Three Rivers in 1963. She worked at Reish’s Shoe Store until they closed in 1989. The Reish family became her second family! Norma had many hobbies, quilting, knitting, crocheting, painting, which she passed on to her children and grandchildren. She loved working with the public and she had a smile for everyone she met. Norma and Lew spent winters in Naples, Fla. in 1994 until Lew’s death in 2016, where they became very involved in their park and met many special friends. Norma attended Bethany Chapel in Three Rivers, and Isle of Capri Community Church in Florida where she had many friends. She was a prayer warrior and held up her family and friends in prayer.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Lewis, grandson, Michael Adamson, two brothers Marvin and Wayne Thomason, sister-in-law Barb Thomason, and brother-in-law Albert Lawson.
