Norma Jean Ault

Clarksdale, Missouri……..Norma Jean Edwards Ault passed away peacefully on April 23, 2018, at the age of 89 years, leaving a legacy of love and kindness reflected in her life and through her many talents. She was born in Mokane, Missouri, to James Henry Edwards and Edith Margaret Edwards on November 27, 1928.

After graduating high school at Fulton High School, she married Bartholomew A. Ault on July 26, 1946, a WW II veteran who passed away in November, 2013. She is survived by 4 children:  Mary Daugherty (Jerry), James A Ault (Michelle), Patricia White (John), and Jack Ault. Surviving also are nine grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.

Norma spent her life not only rearing her 4 children, teaching Sunday school and 4-H classes, and gardening, canning, and freezing, she was also a genius cook. She was a faithful member of the Clarksdale Methodist Church and loved photography.  She worked for numerous photography studios. Rather late in life she discovered a talent for drawing and oil painting, especially focused on portraiture. She painted many portraits for both family and friends, always gifting her talent and making the world beautiful with her love. Though she will be sorely missed by those who loved her, her beauty will live in their hearts, for always.
