Norma Belle Leith

Norma Belle Leith, 97, St. Joseph, Missouri, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, May 21, 2020.
She was born January 14, 1923 in Manson, Iowa.
Norma worked at Bee Wayne's Bakery for 25 years, retiring in 1985 after a fulfilling career of serving others. Norma was a deeply caring and gentle soul, with a great laugh and a humble and generous perspective on life. She never met a person (or an animal) that didn't quickly become a loyal friend.
Norma was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Martha (Hansmann) Leith; five siblings; two nieces; and the love of her life, Chuck Long. Survivors include her seven nieces and nephews, Rick Zehr, Terry Ward, John Zehr, Susan Lamb, Mardella Killip, Phoebe Leith, and Heather Leith, as well as many dear friends and extended family.

A cold front is currently moving through our area this morning dropping temperatures into the lower 40s and upper 30s. Today will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s with increasing clouds. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight. We could see a few areas of light rain and drizzle this evening, but precipitation chances will start to increase overnight into tomorrow morning. With the sub freezing temperatures, precipitation will transition from light rain and drizzle in the evening to snow overnight into Tuesday morning. Snowfall will continue through the morning hours on Tuesday before transitioning to a rain/snow mix while it exits the area. Most areas will see around 1-3 inches. Accumulations will stay mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces, but expect slushy road conditions Tuesday morning. Conditions will slowly start to improve for the rest of the work week with sunshine returning and temperatures slowly warming. Rain chances will return for the end of the work week.
