Obituary for Reba Elizabeth "Lib" Hartzog

Mrs. Reba Elizabeth “Lib” Hartzog, age 87, passed away at her home on Green Acres Mill Road, Millers Creek, NC on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 after a lengthy illness. She was born to Grover Cleveland and Mary Ellen “Molly” Norris on April 27, 1931 and grew up in the Fleetwood Community of Ashe County in a close-knit loving family of ten siblings.

Lib was an immaculate housekeeper, a great cook, an avid gardener and she took great pride in her home and meticulously landscaped yard. She had that infectious “Norris” personality that never meets a stranger and her quick-wit always left a smile on your face. She will be greatly missed by her family and her neighbors in Green Acres. Lib was a member of Liberty Grove Baptist Church in Ashe County.

Funeral services will be held 2:00 Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Reins Sturdivant Chapel with Rev. John Elledge officiating. Entombment will be in Mt. Lawn Memorial Park Mausoleum. The family will receive friends from 12:30 until 1:30 prior to the service at Reins Sturdivant Funeral Home.

Lib was preceded in death by her husband, William Thomas “Bill” Hartzog, a daughter, Sherry Lynn Hartzog, a niece, Mary Beth Ross, and seven siblings, Howard Norris, G.C. Norris, Jr. (Jack), Allie Norris, Bruce Norris, James Norris (Jim), Lucy Waugh, Ruby Wagoner and Ruth Crumpler.

She is survived by two siblings, Paul Norris of Lansing, NC and Helen Ross of Elizabethton, TN. One niece, Debbie Shepherd of Millers Creek and seven nephews, Dannie Norris of Wilkesboro, Marty Norris of Lansing, Ronnie Norris of Todd, David and Jackie Norris of Boone, Bill Norris of Hickory and Mark Ross of Jefferson City, TN, many great nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews are left to honor her memory, along with her best friend and caregiver, Judy Horton.
