Norma Shearin Proffitt passed away on Sunday, May 14, 2023. Her dear mother and sister, Eleanor Shearin Dame and Joan Shearin Lloyd passed before her.
Norma leaves behind her childhood sweetheart and husband of 63 years, Herbert Warren Proffitt.

Friends and family have been incredibly kind and generous during this difficult time with delicious food, beautiful flowers, and lovely visits. Thank you all so much.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
I have very fond memories of Norma and Herb growing up at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church. Condolences to family and friends.
We are praying for God’s peace for you and your family during this most difficult time.
