    Norma became part of our family when her son, Greg and my daughter, Janet wed in 1983. Since that time, I have known her to be a wonderful spirit-filled faithful servant of our Lord. She lived her faith by showing her kindness and love to family and friends. She was always glad to see you and greeted all with a warm hug. She was the pillar of her family and held them together with love, prayers, strength and support during times of unspoken sorrows. She is loved and will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of being in the presence of such a wonderful Christian servant of God. Norma is at peace and has finally reached her eternal heavenly home.

    I will forever cherish all the fond memories I have since childhood of my sweet Aunt Norma. She was such a kind and loving person. Her strength and faith was inspiring. She helped me to overcome doubts in my faith as a teen with just one deep conversation, which I will always be thankful for. I know she is happy to be home with the Lord, her sons, her brothers and sisters, her parents and other loved ones. Sending much love to my cousins for comfort and peace during this sad time.
