Reanna Elizabeth Norwood (Norton) died peacefully at home on December 27, 2018. She was 41 years young and a blessing to everyone she met. Reanna was born January 2, 1977 to Susan Roper (Murison) and Steve Norton in Richland, Washington.

Reanna was an individual who marched to her own drum beat and never met a rule she was afraid to break. Growing up she would write her own notes excusing herself from school and write her own teacher to parent notes, mostly good of course, and complete with a few areas for improvement. Very authentic indeed. Barely into her teens, she would sneak out of the house at night and even taught herself how to drive the family truck (with a 4 speed). She was brilliant, she was convincing, and she did what Reanna wanted to do.

As a child she loved to dress up in outlandish clothes, she would dance like there was no tomorrow, and refused to eat gross things such as hamburger. As the oldest of “the 5 cousins” (Reanna, sister Beth, and cousins Crystal, Jessica and Melissa) Reanna always took charge and ordered the others around as a queen would her minions. Every now and again you might hear a “Reanna, you’re not the boss of the playroom!” float down the stairs from the kids’ playroom of Grandma Betty’s house but the rebellion would be quickly squashed and (Reanna’s) order restored once again.

As she grew into an adult, raising her four kids (Jacob, Justice, Jada, and Derrick) was her overwhelming passion. Her family was the center of her life and she loved her four children through all of life’s ups and downs.  The only rival to that labor of love might have been spoiling her grandkids Carmelo, Zeke, Braelynn, and Makkaia. When she worked outside the home, it was usually in some type of service capacity. She was a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and an incredibly compassionate caretaker. This also spilled over into her family life where she helped take care of ailing family members including her grandpa Bill and her aunt Kathy.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents Al and Betty Murison, her grandpa Bill Norton, and aunts Paula Henry and Kathy Norton. She is survived by her parents Sue Roper (Randy) and Steve Norton (Denise Ciarlo), former spouse Derrick Norwood, grandmother Betty Norton, sister Beth Mata (John), children Jacob Norton (Dana), Justice Norwood, Jada Norwood, and Derrick Norwood. She is also survived by her grandchildren Carmelo, Ezekiel, Braelynn, and Makkaia; her aunt Kay (Chip) and uncles Brian Murison (Candy) and Larry Murison (Lisa); her cousins Crystal Williamson, Jessica Henry (Nate), and Melissa black; nephews Devin and Gavin Mata; and many, many cousins.

A celebration of Reanna’s life will be held at 2:00m PM Thursday January 3, 2019 at Einan’s, 915 By Pass Hwy, Richland, WA.

  • This is heartbreaking. So young and full of life. Reanna and I were not close but I knew her through family. But what I do know is she was always kind to me. I know that she cherished her children. A few years back I sat in a booth at Red Lobster. Idk why I was eavesdropping, I had no idea it was her but her gentle tone and love for her son struck a cord in me. I listened to every word. The tenderness in her voice. The love for her child was apparent. I poked my head around to say good job and saw her. We giggled. And I apologized for being noisy. I wish now I could recall the details but the love for her child was apparent. I could feel it. I knew afshe was an amazing individual by her words and tone.

  • Reanna will be greatly missed by many. Many goods times and great memories are her doing. From the ski trips up in Idaho (girl didn't ski much but was awesome at the lodge) to the gatherings in the tri-cites. Too young to leave us. May there be a million outlandish free clothing shops and a never ending dance floor for you.
