Wiley and Norene had 11 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren besides a host of relatives and friends.
She will be greatly missed in the community. She accepted Christ as her savior during her grade school years. Norene Nettleton was a member at Freedom Baptist Church (Noble ,Illinois ), St. John’s Baptist (Raleigh, N.C.), Trinity Baptist (Riverside, California), and in 1976 Southview Baptist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she was a faithful servant until her death. She was always present at service as long as her health would permit. Her life was a living testimony. Norene was a children’s teacher for over 50 years. She was a kind and loving Mom dedicated to serving Faith, Family, and Friends. Norene was always spreading sunshine in the lives of others. We cannot say she is dead, but is now with Jesus Our Savior. We cannot call her back, but we can go to meet her.
A loved one from us is gone
A voice we loved is stilled
A place is vacant in the house
That never can be filled.
