Helen Norwood, 79, of Florence, left us to be with the Lord on October 22, 2019. She passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by family. She was born on June 29, 1940. Helen was a loving wife, of 48 years, to Henry Guy Norwood, Sr., mother, and grandmother. Her number one priority was taking care of family and friends. She loved her flowers, gardening, a good prank, and her favorite color was purple.
