LaNorma Mae Cordray Easley was born on October 7, 1928 in the community of Time near Milam, Texas to Eula and Judge Cordray, Sr.
Mrs. Easley attended Hemphill High School where she graduated in 1946. She married the love of her life, Wilbern Easley on August 9, 1947. During their marriage of 73 years, LaNorma enjoyed the privilege of being a housewife and mother to their four children. She was known for her excellent cooking, including her chicken and dumplings, dressing, biscuits, cream corn, coconut cake and lots of other sweet treats. LaNorma loved gardening and found great joy in growing vegetables and her beautiful blooming flowers. Just like the gardening she enjoyed, she also loved watching her grandchildren grow and play. She was a member of New Hope Congregational Methodist Church. There she taught young children’s Sunday School for years and was also a member of the Women’s Missionary Society. She was in charge of the church telephone prayer chain for many years. LaNorma loved the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys and could be found rooting her teams along.
Her great joys were visiting with family and cooking for them. She could often be found reading her Bible and looking forward to the next church activity. Everyone knew they could always call on LaNorma to pray for them. She took care of her family and her loving husband right up till her final days. Mrs. Easley was the true epitome of the virtuous woman.
