On April 10, 1940, Lea was born to Solley and Elva (Burrell) Norrid in Shamrock, TX.  She grew up in Wheeler County, on a farm 14 miles NE of Shamrock near the community of Kelton where she attended school and lived until age 15.  She and her mother moved to Lubbock after the death of her father in May of 1955. She attended Lubbock High School and received her diploma from Kelton High School. She attended Texas Tech, and soon after, she married, had her only child, Susan Gail. She lived in Colorado Springs, Albuquerque, San Mateo, and Guam before moving back to Lubbock in 1969.  At age 34 Lea attended nursing school and became an LVN. A few years later, went back to Texas Tech and received her BS in Clinical Nutrition, and a minor in Organic Chemistry in 1984.  She worked as a nurse, and in several areas of the medical field, before first retiring at age 68—and then continued to work and volunteer part-time to fill her time and feel useful.  She enjoyed sewing, dancing, family time, visiting and playing games with her friends, helping others, and most of all spending time with her most treasured companions—her pets.

Lea will be remembered for her wisdom, strength, memory, and wit.  Lea loved people and she loved to make them laugh.  She used her verbal abilities and sense of humor to touch people every day.  And she credits God for all the good she accomplished.  She was a member of First Baptist Church-Lubbock, but most recently became a regular attendee at Lone Star Cowboy Church.

Survivors include her daughter, Susan Gail Wedel, and husband Jimmy; grandchildren, Jami Lachelle Moubry and husband Sean, and Brant Sterling Wedel; great-grandchildren, Connor Steven, and Gavin James Moubry; and brother, Cecil Edward Norrid. She is also survived by her long-time friend Sam Hassan, and nieces Mary Ann Hood, Jaquita Watters, Brenda Wesley, and nephew David Norrid.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, James Cornealius Norrid and Floyd Irwin Norrid; and sister, Mary Belle Bentley.
