Norma Mae Wilson Rodgers
September 9, 1938  -  January 4, 2018


Norma Mae Wilson Rodgers passed away on January 4, 2018 in Little Rock, Arkansas, at the age of 79.

Norma was born in Bossier City, Louisiana on September 9, 1938. A native of Bossier City, Louisiana, she graduated from Bossier High School in 1956 and went on to Louisiana Tech where she met her husband of 60 years, Robert Rodgers. Norma and Robert had four boys and spent most of their lives in Shreveport before moving to Arkansas to retire.

Norma played the French horn in the high school band and was voted “Wittiest Girl” by her classmates. She loved to cook, sew, play tennis, and teach aerobics. She passed on her love of the arts, music, and movies to her sons and later, her beloved daughters-in-law whom she welcomed into the family as her own. Her sense of humor and smile lit up the room and brought levity to all occasions. She shared a close bond with her two sisters, and no one has ever laughed more than the three of them when they were together.

Norma was preceded in death by her parents, Norborne and Wilda Wilson; son, Robert Louis Rodgers, Jr. and sisters, Wilda Wilson Baker and Kathe Wilson Johnson.

She is survived by her husband, Robert Louis Rodgers; sons: Kevin Scott Rodgers and wife, Sarai of Little Rock, AR; Craig Allan Rodgers and wife, Kathy of Southlake, TX; and Earl Norborne Rodgers and wife, Sue of Aspen, CO. She is also survived by grandchildren: Candice Rodgers Hillman and husband, Justin; Courtney Christine Rodgers; Robert Brantley Rodgers and wife, Jessica, Peyton Elizabeth Price Rodgers, Waylon Elias Rodgers; and Benjamin Banks and great-grandson, Asher David Hillman.

A Celebration of Norma’s life will be held at 10:30 am, Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, 295 Balearic Road, Hot Springs Village, Arkansas 71909.
