Obituary for Catherine Vivian Norwood

Catherine Vivian Kennedy Norwood, age 94, of Douglasville passed away May 9, 2017. She was born in Powder Springs, Georgia, the daughter of the late I.W. Kennedy and the late Myrtle Mary Moon Kennedy. After graduating from high school, Mrs. Norwood received training from Rich’s Department Store so she could work in their salon. She later worked as a Sales Clerk for Sears-Roebuck & Company—but, most of her life’s work was devoted to her husband, children, and grandchildren. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Douglasville.

Catherine was an artistic soul who loved painting and sewing. In her later years she loved to garden.

In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her beloved husband of 66 years: John F. Norwood.

She is survived by her children and their spouses: Linda and Joe Bennett of Loganville, Joan and Gary Barnes of Marietta, Gail Bowen of Villa Rica, Ed and Janice Norwood of Sparta, and Renee and Tony Olivastri of Marietta; twelve grandchildren; twenty great grandchildren; and five great-great grandchildren.

The family will receive friends at Hightower’s Memorial Chapel, 7034 Broad Street, Douglasville, Georgia 30134 on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 from 5:00-7:30 P.M. and also at the First Presbyterian Church of Douglasville, 9190 Campbellton Street, Douglasville, GA 30134 on Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 12:00 noon until the service hour.

The Funeral Service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Douglasville on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 1:30 P.M. with Reverend Andrew Dickinson officiating.
