Norma L. (Snodgress) Beavers, 86, of Kennard, was rewarded for her devoted faith in Jesus as she passed from this life on July 24, 2020. She was born on April 20, 1934 in Henry County to the late Howard and Dorothy (Bailey) Snodgress. She was a graduate of Kennard High School in 1952. Later that year, on August 3, she married John R. Beavers who preceded her in death on March 15, 2004.
Norma was a homemaker, a loving wife of 52 years, a devoted mother and the “coolest” grandma. While she worked several part-time jobs throughout her life, her main priorities were her love for the Lord and her family. She enjoyed cooking, baking, sewing, serving others and playing the piano. She was always thrilled when her home was filled with her family. She was a generous friend, a kind-hearted neighbor, and a committed member of Kennard Friends Church, where she served as treasurer and was the pianist for nearly 50 years. Her faithfulness to Jesus, her family and others will forever provide comfort and joy
