I knew Norma and her husband Richard through their son Richard. I spent many holiday celebrations with them and always found Norma to be a warm and caring woman. My condolences to the family on this loss. I am sure she will be greatly missed. I hope that over time many fond memories will eventually replace the pain of loss.

Thank You Lord for my Aunt Norma❤ I remember growing up and visiting her home, enjoying the time there with family. Her sister, my mother, Dorothy who recently passed away and sisters, Flora and Virginia shared many years together, that is precious to us all. May Gods love and comfort minister to the Family at this time of loss. Amen
