Evia Jewell Norris

Female, #19551, (29 Aug 1913 - 8 Jul 2008)
Birth*29 Aug 1913 Evia was born at Nacogdoches, Nacogdoches Co., Texas, on 29 Aug 1913. Daughter of Henry Abud Norris and Francis "Fannie" Etta Moore.1 
Marriage*21 May 1931 She married Horace Hillborn Hobbs at Gladewater, Gregg Co., Texas, on 21 May 1931 at age 17.1 
Married Namesay 1934  As of say 1934, her married name was Hobbs. 
Death of Spouse4 Sep 1979 Her husband Horace Hillborn Hobbs died on 4 Sep 1979 at Houston, Harris Co., Texas.1 
Death*8 Jul 2008 She died at Columbus, Colorado Co., Texas, on 8 Jul 2008 at age 94.1 
Obituary*16 Jul 2008 Evia Jewel Norris Hobbs, 94, passed away peacefully Wednesday, July 9 at River Oaks Healthcare Center in Columbus.
She was born into the large family of Henry Abud Norris and his wife, Frances "Fannie" Moore Norris on August 29, 1913 near Nacogdoches.
Evia married Horace H. "Goob" Hobbs in Gladewater during the East Texas oil boom on May 21, 1931. Early in their marriage he nicknamed her Granny because she was so slow in meal preparation. The name of Granny stuck. Many of their oilfield friends and acquaintances never knew their real names, as they were known as Goob and Granny.
During the 1930s, 40s and 50s they lived throughout the coastal country of Southeast Texas and Louisiana as his employment by Glen H. McCarthy Drilling Company required many transfers. In their middle years, Horace retired from the oilfield and they made Houston their permanent home.
As Evia's children grew older, she was employed as music director for two kindergarten schools in Houston for a number of years before she entered a second career as a florist when she and Horace established Bellfort Nursery and Florist in Houston. They were drawn to specializing in the tropical plants they loved. Each summer found them traveling to Florida and Mexico in search of rare and unusual specimens for their customers.
Horace's sudden death in 1979 changed Evia's life again. As a widow she traveled extensively throughout the world as well as the United States and Mexico. Her bags were always packed for her next trip whether by plane, bus or auto.
Following heart surgery she became very involved promoting chelation as an alternative treatment for heart disease, thus traveling a great deal in relation to her new interest organizing the Chelation Club of Texas. She was elected the first president of the organization.
She played the piano and accordion by ear from childhood until her last days in her 95th year. She never had a music lesson but if she heard a melody she could play it. She loved to sing. She sang with The Silvertones at Spring Shadows Place in Houston during her nine years of residence there, then actively engaged the residents of River Oaks in Columbus to attend a weekly sing-a-long when circumstances required her to live out her life there. On the Road Again could have been her theme song as she loved to sing while driving with her children and later in life with her grandchildren.
Her delight was celebrating her birthday every August with family and friends. Before the end of each birthday celebration she would be making plans for the next party.
Strong willed, extremely creative, very beautiful, charming and wily, she could command an audience, charm, delight and befriend people wherever life took her.
She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents and her 12 siblings. Her two sisters were Nettie Norris Lundsford and Lorena Norris. Her 10 brothers were Keith, Green, Ivy, Garland, Lora, Charlie, Jack, Francis, Winfred and Garvis Norris.
She is survived by her three children, Helyn Hobbs Farris and adored son-in law, William of Eagle Lake; Horace Olan Hobbs and wife Mary Ellen, who Evia loved as a daughter, of Concan; and her third child, Evia Jeannine Hobbs Richards of Hockley; seven grandchildren and their spouses: Candyce Farris Dixon and Dale, Melody Farris Grigar and Michael, Rich Farris and Carolina, Horace Olan Hobbs Jr. and Cynthia, Theresa Hobbs Frasch and Neal, Gary Richards Jr. and Heather, and Charlie Richards and Ashley.
Evia's long life allowed her many years to enjoy great grandchildren Alyssa, Will and Luke Dixon; Lance Grigar and wife, Carrie; Lori Grigar Chapman and husband, Will; Horace III and Roselyn Hobbs; Curren and Duncan Frasch; Jacob, Melody, Sarah, Michael and Emily Richards [also Nicole and Dylan Farris]; as well as two great-great-grandchildren, Laila Chapman and Gunner Grigar.
The family gathered for a graveside service at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 12 at San Jacinto Memorial Gardens in Houston with the Rev. Ken Goodell of Houston, retired Methodist minister, officiating.
Great-granddaughter Alyssa Dixon sang and family members shared fond memories of Evia. She was buried beside her husband and parents.
