Obituary

Marie S. Norris passed away on January 14, 2022 at the age of 83. She is survived by her three children, Robert (Kris Naros) Norris of O'Fallon, MO, Karen (Dennis) Fogerty of Winfield, MO, James (Barbara) Norris of O'Fallon, MO; three grandchildren, Brian (Mary) Fogerty, Kelsey Norris, James Norris; two great-grandchildren, Keegan Fogerty and Kolby Fogerty;  She is preceded in death by her parents, John and Mary Barso Anderson, grandchildren, Brandon Norris and Nathaniel Fogerty, brother, John Anderson.  

Mary spent her life caring for her family, and many others.  Along with her husband Bob, Marie raised three children:  Robert, Karen, and James.  When they divorced, she was on her own for the first time.  She spent the next 15 years caring for the Sisters of Mercy Nuns (at Mercy Hospital), as well as her father John, until his passing.  She enjoyed Lake Timberline for many years, and eventually purchased her own home in the Timberline Community.  She was on top of the world!  She served as a member of the local volunteer Emergency Medical Team; and she was an active member of the Eagle’s Club.  Marie also loved to gamble.  She took many trips to Vegas, acting as the chauffer for her dad and Uncle Woody.  

Marie and her first grandson, Nathaniel, were inseparable.  She loved her children, “other” grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; but Nathaniel was always first.  When he passed, Marie was devastated.  Marie, Bob, and the rest of the “OATS Bus” enjoyed watching Nathaniel’s brother, Brian, play college basketball.  They made it to all the home games, and nearly all the away games.  Everyone enjoyed the journey that was shared during this time, which was fueled by countless cups of QT coffee.  
When Brian married his college girlfriend, Mary, Marie was happy that he found a great Catholic girl! Brian and Mary gave her two great grandkids, Keegan and Kolby.  They visited her home often-she especially enjoyed when they would chase her cat, Clare, and giving them rides down the hall on her walker.  Over the years, Marie and Bob always kept in touch.  They eventually began a new relationship and lived together until Bob’s passing. 

Marie fought a long, hard battle with cancer…and she never gave up. 

She cared for all those she met.  The world has lost a good soul - she will be missed.
