Patricia Norris Obituary

Patricia (Pat) Norris, nee’ Sampson, a resident in Decatur Co. for almost fifty years, passed away on January 21, 2024.  She was born in Davidson Co., Tennessee, on August 13, 1936, to Hobart and Louise (Perryman) Sampson.  She was predeceased by her husband Thomas (Tom) B.

Patricia is also survived by her younger sister Barbara Carpenter and numerous nieces and nephews. 

Patricia attended and graduated from Nashville Central High School and was, during her tenure, a cheerleader.  It was there she first met Tom which resulted in a marriage of 65 years.  Her sense of style lent her to act as interior decorator for friends and family.
