Mrs. Dempsey was born on September 1, 1929 in Barnsdall, Oklahoma to Arthur and Flarnie Alta Mae (Morris) Newcomb. She grew up and received her education in Barnsdall and later attended Bartlesville Business College. Prior to her marriage she had been employed as a switchboard operator for the telephone company. She was married to Jimmie Dempsey on June 9, 1950. They were blessed and stressed with three daughters and made their home in Dewey where Mr. Dempsey was active as a general contractor, and later expanded into Jimmie Dempsey Commercial Roofing. Following an injury and physical demands of the construction business, Mr. Dempsey later began to buy and sell a few cars and trucks which later became his lifelong business, Jim's Used Trucks. Mrs. Dempsey worked alongside her husband in all of these ventures as co-owner until their retirement in 2005. Mrs. Dempsey also served as church secretary for the Dewey Assembly of God Church for over 20 years and became a member of the Tuxedo Assembly of God Church in 1980. Mr. Dempsey preceded her in death on December 15, 2007 and she has remained a resident of the Dewey area. She was recently honored as the 2016 Valentine's Day Queen at Bartlesville Health & Rehab Community where she was a resident. She also loved to sing and dance and participate in the community's activities.
Throughout the ups and downs of life, Nora was always cheerful and known for her great sense of humor and wit. She was a loving mother and grandmother. At Bartlesville Heath & Rehab she was lively and fun, dancing and singing up through the last days
Mrs. Dempsey is survived by three daughters, Barbara Dempsey Brown and husband Wayne of Arlington, Texas, Patricia Ann Dempsey Dittman and husband Steve of Dewey and Brenda Dempsey McAnaw and husband Mike of Bartlesville, five grandchildren, Libby Goode-Grasmick, Dustin Kerbs, Krystal McAnaw Cummings, Brooks Knight and Nicole McAnaw and one great granddaughter, Reese Grasmick.
In addition to her husband she
was preceded in death by her parents, one
brother and two sisters.
The family would like to thank Bartlesville Health & Rehab for the loving care. They not only cared for our mother but also took care of our family during this difficult time.
