Destiny Norris went on her final ride July 26th, 2020. Only those she knew and loved were allowed to call her Decky. She lived each day of her 12 years to the fullest and without fear! She set an example of what it truly means to love life and one that we all should follow.
To plant a memorial tree in honor of Destiny Dawn Norris (Norris), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Decky, a rare Cliff Cowgirl, had a deep passion for her horses and those she cared about. She specialized in stirring the family pot with her wild side and riding her horses bareback while standing on their back! You could hear her coming in her cowgirl boots before you ever saw her face! Her smile and laugh lit up every room or canyon she was in.
Destiny loved the outdoors and preferred animals over people. Her wild and free spirit, along with her deep love for animals showed in the many stray animals she brought home. She lived for her music and wanted everyone else to hear it as well. She may have been a cowgirl and loved to get dirty, but she always made sure her hair was done and her nails painted!
Decky is truly loved and will never be forgotten! Daddy’s girl, momma’s world, papa’s cowgirl, granny’s partner and nana’s little helper!
