Norma Wiggins Arnold, 87, of Louisburg, passed away on Tuesday August 18, 2020 at Wake Medical Center. She was born in Johnston County, the daughter of the late Alice Mabel Massengill Wiggins and Elbert Wiggins. She was preceded in death by her husband Grover Cleveland Arnold, and by a brother, Jimmy Wiggins.
Mrs. Arnold is survived by her son, Tony Arnold and his wife, Janice, of Franklinton; and by a sister, Nina Roberts and her husband, Douglas, of Four Oaks.
Norma always had a helping spirit and loved to visit and help her neighbors. Even when Parkinson’s had robbed her of her ability to do tasks for herself, she still found ways to help those around her. Her kindness and smile was always abundant to everyone. New Hope Christian Church was an important part of Norma’s life and she loved her church family and missed the days when she could participate in church activities. Norma faced a number of difficulties during her life but always trusted in the Lord and accepted the things she could not change. She had many adventures with her close friends traveling all across the United States and hunting for beanie babies. Norma loved her family and especially enjoyed the Mother’s Day lunches, Christmas dinners, Myrtle Beach family trips and visiting with her sister and brother-in-law for a week when she was still able to do these things. Norma will always be in the hearts of those who loved her and experienced her kindness, thoughtfulness and love.
A graveside funeral service will be held at 11 o’clock Friday morning August 21, 2020 at the New Hope Christian Church Cemetery with Rev. Steve Barham officiating. Social distancing and facial coverings are requested.
The family would like to thank the staff at Hillside Nursing Center and the staff at Louisburg Manor for all their generous care and love.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to the New Hope Christian Church Building Fund, 2779 NC Hwy 98 W., Louisburg, NC 27549.
