Norma enjoyed her family life she was a loving person any person that walked into her home she made sure they eat or have coffee or tea, she had a good heart, and a good hospitality.

Norma had a very favorite scripture she always quoted, Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon, me because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek, He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.

Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure, you are loved beyond words, and missed beyond measure.
