Norma D. Sprague – East Coast Post


Mrs. Norma D. Sprague, 90, of Onancock, died peacefully at home on Tuesday October 5, 2022. Born April 19, 1932 in Norfolk, she was the daughter of Ralph N. Wolfe and Carrie F. Davis and stepdaughter by Harry W. Davis.
Norma graduated from Bloxom High School, Class of 1950, and married Donald C. Smith the following year, spending the next two decades traveling the world as an Army wife. Upon their return to the East Coast, Norma began working as an office assistant for Ginsberg, Nottingham and Mapp, and later, the Virginia State Police. Upon retirement, she became a member of the K4BW Eastern Shore Amateur Radio Club, a hobby she has greatly enjoyed over the years. Norma adored her family and especially looked forward to spending time with them.
In addition to her parents, Norma was predeceased by her first husband and father of her children, MSG Donald C. Smith; their daughter, Denise L. Maddox; and her second husband, Bill Sprague, to whom she was married for more than 35 years.

Smith and his wife, Susan, all of Onancock; son-in-law, Rob Maddox, of Crisfield, Md.; Ryan Baker (Tammara), Josh Baker (Ashlynn), Jessica Baker, Mandi Holland (Robert) and Jason Hart (April); and her great-grandchildren, Natalee, Collin, Trevor, Jacob, Olivia, David, Kiley, Carter, Jackson and Avery, all of whom she adored dearly.
