Helen Cagle Norman, 93, Indianapolis, died Wednesday morning at her home in Drexel Gardens.
The daughter of Walter and Joanne Cagle, she was born September 13, 1920 in Edger, Arkansas. She married Loren Dale Norman on December 19, 1959.
A loving woman, Helen touched the lives of all whom she encountered during her long life: friends at RCA where she worked for many years; friends that she met while a member at Drexel Gardens Apostolic Tabernacle; nurses, health-care workers, and neighbors who affectionately dubbed her "Granny". Most of all, Granny loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren fiercely—the matriarch of the family, she raised them and left a legacy of love.
She is survived by a daughter, Lorna Marie Smith; four grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and ten great-great grandchildren. Besides her parents, preceding her in death were her husband, Loren, one son, James Calvin O'Briant; eight siblings: Dona, Delia, Virgil, Ruby, Wilburn, Farrell, Pauline, and Clara; and two grandchildren, George "Doug" White and the late Rebecca "Becky" Wilson.
