Norma Holmes Obituary, Death – On Friday, our beloved Norma Holmes passed away quietly. She was the last surviving member of Bert and Essie Pinion’s seven children. She married John Brummett in 1938 and remained in Tulsa until his passing on September 8, 1919. She was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She wed Tulsa native Noel Holmes in 1965.At the age of 50, Norma and Noel retired to Black Lake, a community outside Campti, Louisiana, where she had worked for Clarkes Good Clothes for many years.
Both wished to engage in their respective hobbies of bridge and fishing. After living in Louisiana for a while, they moved back to Tulsa, where she got involved in Meals on Wheels and the city’s Senior Citizens Center in Central Park. Norma earned Masterpoints in bridge by her participation in tournaments, play at the Center, and numerous women’s clubs.
Ask her children and grandkids; she was an expert at practically all card and board games in addition to bridge. A warm, kind disposition, a large circle of friends, and a strong trust in Jesus all defined Norma’s life. Before relocating to Texas to be near her immediate family, she attended the Disciples Sunday School class on a regular basis as a lifetime Christian and member of Harvard Avenue Christian Church.
Every day, Norma was observed reading her Bible.Janet Brummett Mainer and John R. Brummett, her two children, and Michael Holmes, Michelle Pruyn, and Jeanine Holmes, her three stepchildren, survive her. Nine grandkids and seven great-grandchildren also survive her.
