Mrs. Nora J. Scarbrough, was born in Meridian, Mississippi, on July 31, 1923. She was a member of Meridian Ephesus Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Meridian MS. She received her elementary education in Lauderdale County, Mississippi at New Hope School and later obtained her GED.
She was united in matrimony to Cecil B. Scarbrough and they were blessed with a lovely family, three sons, and six daughters. Her husband, Cecil Scarbrough and a daughter, Iznes Scarbrough, both preceded her in death.
Mother Nora loved using her hands. She enjoyed sewing, ceramics, crocheting, and talking on the phone. She also enjoyed singing in the choir and was proud of being a woman of the civil rights movement.
On Friday morning, June 25, 2021, at her home in Meridian, the Lord looked down at Mother Nora and He saw that she was tired. He whispered in her ear and said, "Peace Be Thine," and she closed her eyes and went home to be with Him eternally.
She leaves to cherish her memories: five daughters: Rosetta Riser, Fairfield CA, Carolyn Dawson, Sacramento CA, Shelia Young, Virginia Beach VA, Sherry (Bobby) Hunter, Marion MS, and Zenith (Ron) Turner, Fairfield CA; three sons: Thomas M. (Shirley) Scarbrough, West Sand NM, Cecil B. (Linda) Scarbrough and Chris Scarbrough, both of Meridian MS. She also leaves a host of grandchildren and great grandchildren to cherish her memory.
