Arnetta Beulah Painter Norman passed away on April 13, 2013. 
She was born July 13, 1938 to Owen and Ellen Painter of Sissonville, W.Va. She was united in marriage to Mr. Leon Norman on Dec. 11, 1959.
Three children blessed this union: Melinda (and Robert) Messenger of Wasilla, Alaska, Douglas Norman and his girlfriend Paula of Labelle, Fla. and Mechelle (and Christopher) Nash of Fairbanks, Alaska; one grandson, Sean also of Wasilla, Alaska; and three granddaughters, Lauren, Hannah and Maggie. 
Also surviving are numerous siblings, nephews and nieces who reside in Ohio and W.Va.
Other than her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband after 38 years of marriage.
She and her husband moved to Alaska in 1977 from Atlanta, Ga. They lived there until 1992 when they retired to Somerset, Ky. Her family grew even larger due to her activities in the Newcomers’ Club and bowling, they were more than friends, they were family. The staff of the Neighborhood of Somerset became very close friends with her during her extended stay in that facility.
The family of Arnetta Norman would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have done so much for the family during this time.
