We had the privilege of knowing Mrs. Greenhalgh in Touisset. She was a lovely, kind and wonderful person. We would walk our dog, Bagel, daily by her house, and she always lovingly stopped to pat him - which he very much enjoyed! She and Mr. Greenhalgh are very much missed here in Touisset. God Bless them both.

My thoughts are with you Sue, Peter, David and Susan, and all your family. Aunt Norma will be missed. She was a truly kind person, warm and sincere. She was a true animal lover and I'll never forget those times visiting your home to see the new puppies. In fact, each time that I look at this toy poodle I now have, I always think of her. Norma was also a gracious hostess and always warmly welcomed Ralph and us during our visits, whether at Christmastime or during the summer for a cup of homemade chowder on the porch. Great memories. These last few years were difficult, I know, but perhaps you may have a sense of peace in knowing that she is at rest, and is now standing with the choir of heaven. With God's love and mine, Susie Glassey (Ralph's Susan).

To all of Norma’s family,
I had the privilege of caring for Norma in her home in Touisset.
Norma was surely one of a kind!
Always a smile and often humorous, a beautiful human being!
And always up for a Somerset Creamery run!

Susan, I'm sorry to hear of Norma's passing. Her and George were very nice to us when we started going to the Olde White Church. George in his coat in the middle of summer and Norma right there with him. I told her my Mom's name was Norma also. They were the only Norma's I knew. I imagine it was quite the reunion in heaven.
God Bless you Susan and your family
