FALLOWS, Norma Campbell (nee MacLellan) - Age 78 of Dartmouth, passed away peacefully at the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital on November 2, 2019. Norma, the daughter of the late Rev W. Lloyd and Elizabeth “Lib” MacLellan was raised in New Glasgow, NS and Cornwall, Ontario. She is predeceased by her devoted husband of 52 years, Bernard Fallows. She is survived by her loving sons John (children Alexander and Julia), Glen (Shelley and children Catherine and Michael) and David (Maya and children Nicholas, Thomas and Daniel), as well as her sister Margaret “Peggy” MacNeill, and brother William “Bill” MacLellan. Norma spent her career helping others as a nurse after graduating as an RN from the Montreal General Hospital. She worked at the Lachine General Hospital before working over 25 years at the Dartmouth General Hospital. Norma was very active in the St. Andrews Presbyterian Church where she served as an elder and a member of the choir for over 35 years. Norma enjoyed many wonderful and active years golfing at Hartlen Point Golf Course. She took a keen interest in the lives of her grandchildren who were very dear to her and took pleasure in watching them play hockey, listening to their music concerts, and especially treasured time with the family at the cottage each summer at Sandy Bottom Lake. She had a passion for gardening, crossword puzzles, a good game of bridge, and cheering for the Blue Jays. Norma was fortunate to have an amazing friend network who she met through the church, golf course, hockey rink, and while living in Dorval, on Montrose Crescent, and at Kinross. They have blessed her entire life and have been extraordinarily supportive, particularly in the past few years. The family wishes to thank the medical team at the QEII for their thorough and compassionate care during her stay. Visitation will be held at St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 216 School St in Dartmouth on Monday November 4th from 6:00-8:00 pm. Funeral service will also be held at St Andrew's Presbyterian on November 5th at 10:30 am, Rev. Dr. P. A. Sandy McDonald officiating. Donations may be made in her honour to the Presbyterian World Service & Development Fund (PWS&D) at www.presbyterian.ca. On-line condolences can be made to: www.mattatallfuneralhome.com.

Just had a message from former neighbour Charlotte Wilson who lived on Albert St. New Glasgow and I grew up on Forbes Street when the MacLellans lived in the Manse on Washington Street. Remember all the MacLellans and although I attended the Kirk Church we also attended the other two Presbyterian Churches in New Glasgow. Sincere sympathy to Peggy and Billy. ( I was a Brown growing up).

As neighbors of Norma and Bernie on Montrose Cres, our family is truly saddened with this news. Norma was a constant and caring friend and neighbor during our 8 years. We hold fondly all our friendly conversations, the caring concern when we took ill, and the genuine interest of our girls. We would banter from Deck to Deck and I would often tell Norma the best part of our house was her Gardens! Wishing the family strength during this difficult time.

Colin, Becky, Rylee and Reese.

Barbara and Ernest knew Norma and Bernie from our time together on Green Circle in Dorval. Our kids, Bruce and Kathryn, grew up with John, Glen, and David. We have happy memories, and photos, of good times in those early years.

We all send our deep condolences to Norma's family.

To Norma Fallows’ family:
I was so sad to read of Norma’s death. She and I worked together for many years at Dartmouth General Hospital. More recently I encountered her often at Kinross Hall when I was there to visit my mother.
Norma was a very special lady and will be sorely missed. I regret I won’t be able to attend either the visitation or the funeral as I am out of town.
Sincerely
Sylvia Wist

Dear Fallows family

Norma and I were friends for just short of three years. We did have a close kinship over sharing our Presbyterian roots; Norma a faithful member of St. Andrews and Iona my spiritual home.

We played bridge, rummoli and bingo, when we were bored; joking how our roots would frown on bingo.

Norma bore her condition without a complaint, always willing to venture forth to outings. I love the memory of Norma coming home in her chair from the shopping center, full steam ahead. She was in command in her chair.

Kinross has been in mourning the last few days. There is a big part of us missing, we were blessed to have her.

Peggy, you will miss her. You were a most faithful l sister. God bless you all during this sad time.

Unfortunately, I cannot attend her service. I will be there in spirit.

Norma moved to Kinross the same week I did.
We instantly connected and developed a wonderful and loving
relationship, over, bridge, rumoli, concerts, daily meals together, and early morning coffee runs. I was blessed to have such a caring person in my life and was glad I was able to help her when she needed some extra care.
She was well regarded at her home in Kinross and she will be sorely missed by everyone here, and especially me!
She will always have a special place in my heart. ❤️
May she rest in peace and fly with the angels!
