Norma Jean Branham Obituary

NORMA JEAN BRANHAM, known to many as Nan-nan, went home to be with the Lord on March 24, 2020. She passed away in her home where she lived with her daughter, Debbie, her husband, Tom Price, for the past 12 years.
Norma Jean was born November 22, 1932, in Kentucky to Kelly and Ela Turner. She grew up in Pikeville, Ky., and became a waitress at the age of 15. There she met a Taxi driver, Virgil Branham, whom she was married to for 3 months shy of 50 years. Virgil took her on an adventurous ride of a lifetime! After they married, they settled in Boone County, where they raised their family. They had five children: Sharon, Sally, Debbie, Dwayne and Keith.
Norma Jean was an active member of Cazy FWB Church for many years. There she taught a teenage Sunday school class for 14 years, helped in Vacation Bible Schools, President of Lady's Aide, participated in annual plays, and member of the church choir. Her husband served as a Deacon where Norma Jean was a role model of a Deacon's wife. They blessed many ladies with transportation to church who were unable to drive.
Norma Jean was known to everyone as one of the sweetest, most kind ladies you would ever meet. She was a very faithful wife, mother and grandmother. Her example shined Christ. She fulfilled the role of a Proverbs 31 woman (her children rise and call her blessed). She left a legacy that has impacted generations and will continue on.
May she leave you with something to remember, "May the Lord Bless you and Keep you." Numbers 6:24
Norma Jean was preceded in death by her parents, Kelly and Ella Turner; husband, Virgil Branham; oldest son, Dwayne Branham; sisters, Blanche, Opal, Palestine, Pauline, Wildean; and daughters-in-law, Mary and Denise.

Service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, March 27, at Roxalana Gospel Tabernacle Church, Dunbar, with Tom Price officiating. Burial will follow in Danville Memorial Park, Danville. Visitation will be noon to service time at the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that you send donations to Roxalana Gospel Tabernacle Building Fund, 2111 Roxalana Road, Dunbar, WV 25064.
