Our loving “Shining Star” Norma Jean Yeatts, of Petersburg, moved to Heaven on Tuesday, May 17, 2022. Norma was preceded by her devoted father, Linwood Thomas Yeatts; sister, Natalie Yeatts Crepps; niece, Harley Crepps; devoted friend, Kent Mallory, Jr.; grandparents, Merriwell and Dean Yeatts Elmer, and Ethel Butcher.

Yeatts, CJ Schumm, and Logan B. Schumm; nephews, Joshua Schumm (Savannah), and JT Schumm; aunts, Ruby Lewis (Herbert), Ann Morris (Dale), and Phyllis Lanning (Wade).
