Norrine was born on August 16, 1928 in Jayton, Texas and attended school there.
She played basketball and was invited to play with the Queens at WBU in Plainview. Instead she met James Woolsey and fell in love and after her graduation from HS, they got married on April 14, 1948.  They lived in Snyder, TX until 1968.  They moved to Odessa, TX and this was their home until James died on September 15, 1999.  She then moved to Plainview, TX and lived there until March 29, 2013 when she moved to Arbor’s Park West, where she lived until December 20, 2017.
She was a homemaker and loved to try new recipes with her own twist. She was a great cook.  She also loved the Astros and seldom missed watching their games.  She loved attending a game and having her picture taken with their mascot.
She also enjoyed the Cowboy Poets of Amarillo and attended their meetings faithfully.
She loved her family and enjoyed people and made friends easily. She loved Christmas and Mel Tillis, the country singer, whom she did get to meet and have her picture made with him on a trip to Missouri.  It was a highlight in her life.
She also was preceded in death by two brothers, Euel Harrison and Odell Harrison; and two sisters, Pauline Evans and Sybil Baze.
She is survived by her children, Larry Woolsey and wife Vanita of Amarillo, TX; Cindy Chisholm and husband John of San Antonio, TX; grandchildren, Clare Chisholm, Jack Chisholm and Elin Chisholm; her brother, Billy John Harrison and wife Jan of Jayton, Texas; her sister-in-law, Laverna Harrison; along with several nieces and nephews.
