I was sorry to hear of Norma's passing. When James and I moved to the Fannin area years ago and started attending Fannin Baptist Church, I was in Norma's Sunday School class and, also, was able to hear her teach my class sometimes. I hold fond memories of her and wish God's comfort and love for her family.....Katherine Gould

Rick and I send our prayers to the family. Norma and I attended school together and she was a wonderful and caring friend. After we transferred to Atlanta we lost touch through the years! I will always remember her wonderful smile .
