Norma Jean Eye of Belgrade, Missouri, departed this life on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at Mercy Jefferson Hospital in Festus, Missouri, having reached the age of 93 years, 4 months, and 2 days. She was born on December 11, 1927 in Desloge, Missouri, a daughter to the late Clyde and Laura (Dickey) Neely.

She and Bobby returned to Belgrade and farmed for a number of years. Some of her favorite things she enjoyed were quilting, gardening, and most of all being a wife, homemaker, mother and grandmother.
