Obituary Picture     June Knipl Norris, age 80, of Vilas, passed away Sunday morning, December 17, 2017 at her home. She was born May 4, 1937 in Statesboro, GA. June was a member of the Advent Christian Church in Boone, was a dispatcher for the Watauga County Sheriff’s Department, and retired as a switchboard operator from ASU. A master craftsperson, June was an artist who loved creating and designing greeting cards, quilting, stain-glass windows and water color paintings, to name a few. She enjoyed teaching her talents to others and if she saw a need in the community, she devoted her time and talents to fill that need.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Franklin Norris; grandparents, Martin and Junie Herman; and nine half-brothers and half-sisters.
    Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday afternoon, December 20, at 2 o’clock at the Advent Christian Church in Boone, officiated by Minister Gordon Noble and Ladies of the Eastern Star. The family will receive friends Wednesday from 1 until 2 o’clock, prior to services, at the church. Entombment will follow at the Mount Lawn Memorial Park Mausoleum.
