Betty Ann Norris Stedman, 81, devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, died peacefully on Friday, March 27, 2015. She was born in Ruston, Louisiana, on November 20, 1933, the daughter of Elgin Lewis and Clara V Moore Norris. While attending Louisiana Tech University she married Roy Edward Stedman, who preceded her in death in 2009. They spent their 56 years of married life loving their family and others, making music, working, laughing, teaching, and serving their Lord through their church. Ann was an accomplished musician. She was church organist or pianist for many years and whoever heard her play was blessed beyond measure. Ann taught piano and organ to many students and is remembered fondly. Her family was her joy; Ann's sister, Kay, was her best friend.

Ann was welcomed into heaven by her husband, her son, Roy Elgin, her infant granddaughter, Sophie, her parents, and many other beloved relatives. She left behind her children Mike and Susan Schooler, Sandra Steely, Tom and Julie Mosey, and Rob and Laura Janick. She also leaves her grandchildren: Alison and Will Gray, Matt and Tara Steely, Megan Steely Howard, Krystina and Christopher Gage, Courtney Janick, Samantha Mosey, and James Mosey. Also, six great-grandchildren: Lauren Howard, Taylor Steely, Eden Gray, Levi Steely, Chase Howard, and Vincent Gray. She leaves her sister and brother-in-law, Kay and Harold Naff, and much loved nephews, nieces, cousins, and dear friends. We also want to remember her precious caregiver, Jennifer. What would we have done without you?

A graveside service will be held Tuesday, March 31 at 2:00 PM at Grove Hill Funeral Home in Dallas, Texas. If desired, donations may be made to an Alzheimer's Disease Research Center.
