So sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Norma.
I still fondly remember the summer I spent as a child with my sister, Pam, and cousin, Teddy, in Kamloops. Aunt Norma must have been a tower of strength looking after us while administering to her five young children.
Rest in Peace.

Condolences to Uncle Wilf and family. We enjoyed the visits from Aunty Norma and Uncle Wilf over the years to Jamaica and recall many lunches and family times. The very day her sister Gloria learnt of her terminal illness in November 2004 they were coincidentally in Jamaica and we will never forget how strong Aunty Norma was supporting her. That is our best memory of her showing love and compassion in a time of need and speaking wisely to the family knowing the road were were going to travel. Thanks Aunty Norma. May you find eternal rest in your Savior's arms.

I was saddened to receive the notice but grateful to be able to
make a connection with your family. Our past memories
of living in Kamloops and the Chin family were revisited.
Wilf was our children's doctor and he oversaw their medical care
with kindness and good humour. Norma, was one of the mothers
that shared her children with my children. Joel and Richard remain
friends and still enjoy each others company. Their was a depth of
sharing in those past Kamloops days that has never been forgotten. I send deep sympathy to all of your family members from
the Whist family. Josette Whist
