Norma B. Kasey, 80, of New Bern, went home to be with the Lord and 
reunited with her family Tuesday, April 17, 2007.  
Norma was born in Arapahoe, N.C., on October 21, 1926, to Capt. Joseph 
William Brinson and Rosa Willis Brinson.
Being the youngest of seven children, all the other kids wanted to give 
her a name. So this is what they called her: 
Norma Inez Darlene Rosalee Simaramus Hagarjane Persimmonseed Brinson. 
Along with her parents, Norma is preceded in death by her husband of 52 
years, Bob; two brothers, Theodore R. Brinson and Joseph William Brinson 
Jr.; four sisters, Elma Patton, Nellie McManus, Gladys Harper, and Evelyn 
Moore; and her nephew, Jody Brinson.  
Surviving her is her only son, Robert M. Kasey and wife Kathy P. Kasey of 
New Bern; grandchildren, William M. Kasey and Sarah B. Kasey of New Bern; 
sisters-in-law, Dorcas Brinson of Arapahoe, and Jane Mansfield Bennett and 
husband Terri Burgess of Bradenton; and numerous nieces and nephews that 
love her very much.  
Norma was a very devoted wife, mother and grandmama. She loved spending 
time with her family and friends. After all her siblings had passed on, 
she still remained connected with all her nieces and nephews who she loved 
very much. Norma was a member of Highland Park Christian Church, Women of 
the Moose and Pioneer Club and an avid bowler on the Wednesday Night 
Ladies Bowling League. She retired from Carolina Telephone & Telegraph 
after 43 years of service as an executive secretary.  
The family will receive friends tonight from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Cotten 
Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 
21, 2007, at Cotten Chapel with the Rev. Gary Edge officiating, followed 
by burial at Greenleaf Memorial Park.  
Arrangements by Cotten Funeral Home & Crematory.
