My mama was strongest, kindest, and most beautiful woman in the world. She stood beside me through everything that has ever happened to me in my life. Good and bad. She was the one that I called when things went south and when things were awesome. I am not sure how to express the empty feeling that I feel without her. I love you mama. I will miss you every minute of every day.

Norma was a gracious lady with special love and understanding for cats at the HSCC shelter and PetSense. She was always pleasant, despite her challenges. We were better for having her among us.

What a gorgeous woman Norma was but even more so was her kind spirit and wonderful soul. I met Norma a few years ago when she and Gary came to the humane society to adopt a cat. There were some really nice ones to choose from but she opened her heart to one special cat that she knew needed extra love and attention. I knew right then what a wonderful person she was. Then to make it even better she volunteered and became a great member of the cat crew. She took care of the cats at the shelter and Petsense. Her soft gentle ways were always what the cats needed. I am sorry and sad that my life situation got in the way of spending more time with Norma. I was always amazed that even though she was going through tough times she still took the time to listen and ask about others. Gary, my sympathy goes out to you, and her children, grandchildren and extended family.

Norma was my dear friend and had my greatest admiration for how she handled the horrible disease that finally took her life. She would never complain and always .
would ask about me and my well being. We had such a long friendship and knew so much about each other that no one else ever knew. She always understood and never judged. I will miss her so much

Aunt Norma was always my favorite aunt. I cherish all the fun times at Aunt Norma and uncle Randy's house! Adults played cards while the cousins hung out. I could always count on aunt Norma for awesome campsite cooking and funny stories! I can still hear Norma's laugh to this day. I feel eternally guilty for not spending more time with her in the last years of her life. I miss you more than I could express to you. Aunt Norma was always the sweetest person I knew. My heart is very broken right now but I feel deep comfort in knowing that her battle with cancer is over and she can finally rest in peace. Anyone who reads this please text or call me with info about the funeral or any other gatherings. 918-999-0444

My Mema was so strong and such an amazing woman. I looked up to her because she was wise and always knew just what to say. She always knew how to put a smile on my face from working on puzzles to eating our favorite cookies. I will always cherish our memories forever and always! I love you to the moon and back and I am so blessed to have had someone like you as my Mema!

Aunt Norma touched my and my family's lives with love. I always enjoyed her sense of humor, perfectly complimented by her quick wit. Losing her leaves a void that can't be filled, but our lives are richer for having such a loving person in our family.

Even though we didn't live close to each other for most of our grown-up years, sisters share a special bond, and ours was growing stronger. Norma was always caring and a pleasure to be around. I will miss the visits we enjoyed together and with Marde. We will always remember and love you, Norma.
