Norvin Stanley

95 years, a long full life, born in 1924 could she have ever guessed 33 years later, in the big City of Wichita, how her life would drastically change forever after meeting Dad .
A widowed construction worker, struggling to support his 3 kids after the death of his wife from cancer in 1956. I never heard the story of how they met but I’m guessing since both liked music and dancing, they met in a bar.
The rest is history, Married in February of 1957, they brought Vicky 11, Norvin 9, and Sheri 7, to live with them in Wichita, the kids had been living with dad’s aunts in SE east Kansas while he had gone to the city to find good paying work, being a farmer was not enough to raise 3 kids on.
I can’t imagine why A 33 old young woman with her whole life ahead of her would agree to marry a man with 3 kids, but she did, it would only take about 10 years before Vicky, Norvin and Sheri, would be on there own starting new careers, off to the military or married, Mom had done her part, while working full time and starting her own family with the births of Debbie and Marc.
As our lives took different paths, myself to the Northwest Coast, Vicky to the East Coast, the rest never ventured far from Kansas, as you can see from the list of grandchildren 12, great grandchildren 22, and great,great,great grandchildren 4, the family has grown, Mom always kept track of who was who, And I think had met all of her grandchildren, I certainly don’t know most of them.
As with any life you can’t live 95 years without the highs and lows, births and deaths, marriages and divorces, good health and bad, and everything in between. It’s called life.
I didn’t get home as often as I should have after I moved to the Northwest in 1986, but I called home every couple of weeks, talking with Dad until his death then to Mom even if we didn’t have a lot to say it was good to hear there voice, I’ll miss that.
Rest In Peace Mom, your work on earth here is done, no one could have done it better. Love Norvin
