  • Mae Norman

Mae Norman Elizabeth Mae (Woods) Norman, 65, of Waynesboro, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, September 29, 2013, at Shenandoah Nursing Home. Born March 17, 1948, in Augusta County, she was the daughter of the late Jay Preston and Judy Bell (Riley) Woods. On October 17, 1964, she married the love of her life and best friend, Randolph Norman. The two shared a blessed union of 48 years together. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents. Mae loved serving the Lord and attended Laurel Hill Full Gospel Church, Verona. She was employed by Augusta Health for 13 years, until her health caused her to retire in May of 2013. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family, especially cooking for them every Sunday. Mae extremely enjoyed Christmas and those who knew her knew how special this holiday was to her. When time permitted she enjoyed gardening. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many. In addition to her loving husband, survivors include her three children, Randolph Keith Norman of Waynesboro, Karen Elizabeth Beasley and husband, Mike of Staunton, and Christopher Ken Norman and wife, Rosa of Staunton; siblings, her twin, Marie Fitzgerald of Maryland, Brenda Woods of Waynesboro, and Jerry Woods and wife, Denise of Waynesboro; grandchildren, Michael, Kayla, Franchesca and Taylor Norman; great-granddaughter, Madison Mowbray; and soon to be born great-granddaughter, Khloe Norman-Hamlett. A funeral service will be held 1 p.m. Wednesday, October 2, 3013, at the Waynesboro Chapel of Reynolds Hamrick Funeral Homes, 618 W. Main St., with the Rev. William Strickler officiating. Burial will follow at Augusta Memorial Park. Active pallbearers will be Michael Norman, Joseph Woods, Raymond Woods, Steffan Thorton, Leroy Brown, and Jeminiah Brown. The family will receive friends from 6 until 8 p.m. Tuesday, October 1, 2013, at the funeral home. Relatives and friends may share condolences and memories with the family online by visiting
