Patsy Ruth Fulford Norris passed away in Dillon, Montana, on April 10, 2019, at home surrounded by her children.

She was born June 24, 1942, in Helena, Montana, to Virginia Fulford and Mac Fulford. She spent her childhood on the family ranch in Sheridan and later moved to Glen, Montana, where she lived with Art and Myrtle Reichle. She attended Beaverhead County High School where she met and later married Ronnie Norris. Together they raised four children in Melrose. After she and Ronnie divorced, she moved to Boulder, Montana, and started working at the Boulder River School and Hospital. She spent the next 26 years sharing her special brand of love with the residences there.

Patsy loved spending time in her yard planting flowers in her garden and decorating for the various holidays. But above all her greatest love and joy was her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. In Grandma Pat’s world, there was no such thing as a “step” child. All children were welcomed with open arms and never once doubted how much she loved them. She is leaving behind a living legacy of young adults that were blessed to have been touched by her love.

She was preceded in death by her parents and Art and Myrtle Reichle.

She is survived by sisters Debbie Walker and Connie Carter; brother Larry Fulford; daughters Lisa (Leo) Jimenez of Dillon, Montana, and Tonya (Travis ) Hauck of East Helena, Montana; sons Randy (Alison) Norris of Dillon, Montana, and Jamie Norris of Dillon, Montana; 18 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Funeral Services were held in Dillon, Montana, at Brundage Funeral Home Monday April 15, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. with graveside interment.
