Norma Jean Peabody, 84, of Muir, passed away on February 7, 2021 at the Laurels of Carson City.

Norma was born on April 26, 1936 in Lansing, the daughter of Ralph and Marguerite (Hughes) Morofsky.  She worked for many years at the restaurants in Muir. She could always be found chatting people up and she loved all her customers at the restaurants.   She was a people person and delighted in talking and being around people. She enjoyed trips to the casino, Detroit Tiger baseball, her morning trips to the Lumbermill Inn, playing cards with her lady friends; of which there are too many to list! But most of all she adored being a grandma and spending time with her grandkids.  On July 25, 1959 she married James Peabody, and together they enjoyed over 52 years of marriage, until his passing in 2010.  Norma was immensely proud of her marriage to James and she adored him.

Surviving to cherish her memory are her children; Marth Hay of Muir, Sarah Husman of Grand Rapids, Rich (Julie) Peabody of Ionia, Beth (Tyson) Cowles of Lansing, 12 grandkids, 11 great grandkids,  her sister Judy Platte of Detroit, along with many other extended family and friends. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Norma is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a son; William Peabody, a daughter; Denise Peabody, and her brothers; Chester Morofsky and Don Morofsky.
