Mrs. Billie Grace Savoie October 2, 1931 - July 21, 2023 Billie Grace Norsworthy Savoie - Age 91, of Burns, passed from this life on Friday, July 21, 2023, at her residence. She was born on October 2, 1931, in Anacoco, LA, to the late Thomas L. and Aurora L. Norsworthy. She is also preceded in death by her sisters, Jean Evans, and Patsy Nelson. Billie Grace is survived by her husband of 72 1/2 years, Ralph J. Savoie; her daughter, Debby (Tom) Scott, of Burns, TN; son, Kerry (Cathy) Savoie, of Beaumont, TX; her grandchildren, Ryan Scott (Mandy) of Columbia, TN; Jonathan Savoie (Jennifer) of Beaumont, TX; Catherine Fontana (Nick) of Beaumont, TX; Rachel Farmer (Joshua) of Nashville, TN; and Kellie Fontana (Joe) of Beaumont, TX; 12 great grandchildren. Billie Grace loved Jesus, her husband Ralph, her family, coffee, sweets, Christmas lights, loved helping people, and so much more. The last few years have been tough as she battled dementia, but we were amazed that even though she didn't fully know who any of us were most of the time, she always trusted and felt safe on her husband Ralph (PawPaw's) arm. What an example she and PawPaw showed us. We will miss you MawMaw! The funeral service to celebrate her life will be held on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, at 12PM, at First United Pentecostal Church with Pastor Roy Duke officiating. Interment will follow at Middle TN Veterans Cemetery. Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.
