My sincere condolences to Tracey, Tammy, Timmy and family on Norma's passing from me and my mom., Eileen. I'll always remember Norma's cheerful outlook on life. I remember going to the house and catching some fish, as a kid, from the aquarium, and her giving me a hug, and me give her one right back. Her pain in life is over and she will live in my heart till I pass to.

It is with heavy hearts to hear of the passing of Norma. Norma has been a true and caring friend since 1963. She first welcomed my Mom, Jacqueline Martell with veggies from her garden to Eamers Corner when we first moved. That started a long friendship of afternoon tea and long talks. We have fond memories of her humour and creativity. Our deepest sympathy to all of you, Harvey, Brenda, Jack and family.
