I met Norma and Ray in the 70’s, and sat with them in Sunday School, and for some twenty years was a part of their family. Norma and Nancy were so much like their mom, Pauline, who became my mother-in-law and friend and mentor. Norma was always very kind, as was Nancy, and offered some much needed advice many times. I’ll always remember her smile when I think about her, and her honesty. Blessings to her family.

I worked next to Norma in the mid to late 80’s and she was a joy to be around. She gave me great advice and lifted my spirits when I was down. She was truly one of my favorite co-workers of all time. We had some very deep conversations and I remember asking her one time, “Norma what is the secret of like?” And she quickly answered “to Live it!”
Rest In Peace dear Norma, you touched a lot of people and made their lives better for knowing you.
