Norma was my mother in law. I loved her so much, she was
the best mother in law a woman could ever ask for.
I loved that special smile she would give you.
Or that secret look she would give you when
she thought the person speaking to you was
making no sense at all:) She made the best
holiday dinners and made Christmas so special
at "grandma's" house. I will never forget them,
neither will my children. I remember laughing so hard with her, we would be wiping our tears with tissues. I will never forget every single moment I spent with her. I miss her so much...

This picture of Aunt Norma and Uncle Larry was taken in about 1957 (before they were married) in our old house on Androvette Street in Charleston, SI. That is Barbara, as a baby, and in the background to the right is our grandmother, and of course, she is Uncle Larry's mother, (and my mother's mother as well), Olga Sullivan.

Dear Kathy and Brian and family,
Many happy memories are going through my mind as I remember all the good times we shared with Aunt Norma and Uncle Larry! After Ma died, I would get phone calls from Aunt Norma about once a month and we would recall all the family picnics especially the ones at Wolf's Pond.
I will miss her dearly.

P.S.: I just met someone today that grew up in Great Kills! How ironic!

Dear Brian and Kathy and family,

I was so sorry to hear that Aunt Norma passed away. I have many memories of happy times at Aunt Norma and Uncle Larry's house on Midland Road. My sister Susan's bridal shower was held there so many years ago and what fun we had -- we were all so young. I sat with Aunt Norma and talked with her at my mother's funeral wake ten years ago and I will never forget how comforting she was to me on that very sad day.

All of us Reischour cousins are thinking of you and you have our heartfelt sympathy. Our kindest and best thoughts to you today and the days to come.

Patty Reischour,
Your cousin from Hart Boulevard
