My memories of Norma go back to the early 1970s when I joined North Metro chorus. I can still picture her and Lilly sitting next to each other on the bus as we'd be on our way to music school or regional contest. I'll always remember her gentleness as well as her fun-loving nature. She has been and will continue to be missed. Sleep peacefully, dear lady.

Norma was always a bright ray of sunshine for us. She always made us laugh and conjoled with Tom all the time. She gave him a run for his money, that's for sure.

A great sense of humour, a flair for living life to the fullest, and a kind and loving heart.

This is how we remember her and always will.

Norma was such a wonderful lady. Gentle kind, caring and always smiling. She loved the music of North Metro and occasionally visited us after she had retired. It was always a pleasure to see her and to talk with her. Jacqui Barron

Norma was always smiling when at chorus and like so many of her generation, she was a genuine lady. She will always be a part of North Metro and is missed.

Nannie you made me smile and laugh when you told me your stories. I loved the one about ice skating. I will always have a warm spot in my heart for you. I will miss your smile and laughter. God Bless You.
