Norma Nadine Davis Mills Hartnett – May 3, 1929 – Jan. 7, 2014
Norma Nadine Davis Mills Hartnett of Mustang, daughter of Otis and Mary Etta Davis, entered into Heaven Tuesday morning, Jan. 7, into the arms of Jesus.
She loved people and always found the good in them. She loved children and even when the Alzheimer’s set in she still had that sparkle in her eyes when kids were around. Her smile was contagious to all around her. She married Bluford A. Hartnett in 1974 in Hays, Kan. She was a member and president of the American’s Business Woman’s Association. She won the “Woman of the Year” award from the Fort Hays Chapter of ABWA in 1986. Her profession was managing restaurants in Oklahoma and Kansas. She never met a stranger, and was the best listener. She showed the LOVE of Jesus to everyone. She knew how to celebrate and dance and sing, even if she couldn’t carry a tune or dance with grace, she made you smile. She would always laugh during sad situations, because no matter what, we need to find joy in sadness. She took her youngest sister in and raised her as her own, which Janice will be forever grateful. She would guide, help and love you when you needed it most. Simply put, she was Jesus to those around her. She was a wonderful, beautiful and fearless woman of God and will be missed dearly by all who knew her and loved her.
She was greeted in Heaven by her husband, son, grandson, mother, father, two sisters and two brothers.
She is survived by her daughter, Wilda Young of Mustang; her son, Rusty Mills of Oklahoma City; Blu’s daughter, Vickie of Wisconsin; Blu’s son, Glenn of Kansas; sister, Janice of Oklahoma City; 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
Services were held Saturday, Jan. 11 at Mustang Church of the Nazarene in Mustang.
