Norma Jean Landis Pearce, Green Co., KY (1933-2015)

Norma Jean was born on February 25, 1933 in Greensburg, Kentucky to Isaac and Vara (Squires) Landis. She was the youngest of her mother's 11 children and spent her younger years on the Isaac Landis farm in Bramlett. After finishing eighth grade in the one-room Summer Shade schoolhouse, Norma Jean moved to Greensburg proper where she attended high school and worked at the corner drug store. After graduation, she moved to Louisville where she worked for the brokerage company "on the board," and for the FBI as a secretary. She remained especially proud of her FBI service and was active in the Louisville FBI alumni association in her later years.

Norma Jean and Phil raised their three daughters in the Northeast where Phil had a long career with IBM. In their thirty years in Stamford, Connecticut, Norma Jean practiced "love thy neighbor" and "gracious hospitality." She and Phil opened their home to friends, neighbors, and international students from South America, Europe, and Asia. They were active in the First United Methodist Church's congregation and lay leadership. Norma Jean was known for her strong friendships, generosity, endless energy, and independent spirit. Retirement years brought Norma Jean and Phil "home," as they always called it, to Kentucky, where they lived their final years in the Hunting Creek neighborhood in Prospect, KY.

Norma Jean is survived by the following:
  • Her three daughters Pamela Jean Peace Kunkle (husband J. Robert Kunkle) of Charlotte, North Carolina; Dr. Deborah Lea Pearce (husband Dr. William Sheeran) of Pittsford, New York; and Stephanie Ruth Pearce of Louisville, Kentucky

  • Grandchildren: Katherine Lea Stinson, Melissa Lee Schilling, and Suzannah Lea Sheeran.

  • The three surviving great grandchildren: Pearce Dean Stinson, Loah Lea Stinson, and Stone Gregory Stinson.

  • Her sister Elois Landis Landrum of Louisville (previously of Greensburg)

  • and nephew Col. William M. Landrum III.
Pre-deceased by Phil's sister Jean Pearce Huddleston, Norma Jean is survived by The Honorable Walter D. Huddleston of Elizabethtown, whom she called her "kind, wonderful brother-in-law," and nephews Stephen Pearce Huddleston and Phil D. Huddleston. Nieces Joan Skaggs Campbell, Cheryl Fuson, Marsha Sainlair, and Billie Sue Parris "the Skaggs girls" held a most special place in the hearts of Norma Jean and Phil.
