Norma Lee Riggs

March 1, 1926 — October 13, 2021

Norma’s life began on March 1, 1926, on the family farm in rural Florence, KS. She was the daughter of George and Ida (Roberts) Clark. Norma attended rural Summit grade school and graduated from Burns High School. She was united in marriage to Leroy Riggs in 1946 after he returned from serving our country in the United States Navy. Their last home was in Marion, KS. Norma was very talented and learned to play the piano by ear at an early age. In later years, she taught herself how to read music and played for many weddings, funerals, and other occasions. Norma was the church organist for the Marion Christian Church for many years. She was also the librarian at the Marion Public Library for 25 years. Leroy and Norma both enjoyed their family, travelling and working in their lovely garden and yard. Norma is survived by her brother Gordon Clark of El Dorado, sisters Margaret Matz of Peabody and Sherol Nightingale of Burns and many loving nieces and nephews. She passed away on Wednesday October 13, 2021, at St. Luke’s Living Center in Marion. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband Leroy, four brothers, infants Oswald and Willard Clark, Bill Clark, and Ivan Clark: two sisters Maude Gaines and Joyce Barker. Her family will gather with friends on Friday October 22, 2021, from 12-1 p.m. at the Marion Christian Church where her funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. led by Pastor Carl Helm. She will be laid to rest in Burns Cemetery. Yazel-Megli Funeral Home, Marion is serving the family. Memorial contributions in Norma’s name may be directed to Marion Christian Church.
