Norma Jean Webb was born on Aug. 26, 1929 in Dallas, Texas.
She peacefully passed away and went to be with her Lord and Savior on March 6, 2020. She is preceded in death by her parents, Curtis C. and Imogene Webb.
She is survived by her devoted and longtime friend, Pat Ball, her beloved dogs, Dori and Nemo, and too many very special friends to mention.
Norma was an outstanding educator and counselor with DISD for over 34 years. Her bright, inquisitive mind and her implacable, steady demeanor influenced thousands of students and fellow teachers throughout her distinguished career.
A true trailblazer, Norma became the first female administrator at the secondary level in DISD when she was chosen to become the Dean of Instruction at Spruce High School. This honor greatly affected women's equality and advancement in DISD for decades to come.
After retirement in 1987, Norma passionately pursued her many diverse talents and hobbies, including raising and showing miniature horses, operating her photography business, Frozen Image, as well as assisting Pat Ball to build a successful travel and tour business, Breakaway Tours.
Norma will be sorely missed by Pat and her many, many great friends! She would wish and expect all to rejoice in her blessed and abundant life well lived! The celebration of her life will take place on Thursday, March 12, at Calvary Baptist Church, 1609 Rand Rd., in Kaufman, Texas. Visitation with luncheon will begin at 12 noon, with funeral services following at 2 p.m.
