Norma Chadwick Pridgen, 89, of Burgaw passed gently from her earthly life on Friday, November 10, 2017 at Pender Memorial Hospital.
She was born November 29, 1927 in Pender County, one of eleven children born to William Frazier and Myrtle Parker Chadwick. Also remembered are her husband, Ivey D. Pridgen, Sr.; five sisters; five brothers; and a special niece, Dorothy Moore, all who preceded Norma in death.

She was a member of Burgaw Baptist Church and lived her life on Christian principles.
Norma, a lady filled with grace, caring and smiles loved her family above all else. Being a devoted wife and a “mother hen” to her five children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, Norma was an outstanding homemaker. She created a home filled with good cooking, sunshine and a welcome to all who entered. Norma’s sweet, sweet spirit is cherished and will live forever in our hearts.
