Our deepest condolences to the whole family. May happy memories of your mother help sustain you now. We grieve with you.
Bunny always had a smile on her face. I was amazed at her fitness( in her early 80’s) during exercise classes. She was a gentle soul. The whole Balcarres community will miss her!

Sincerest sympathies to all the Norton families from Kevin and I and Dad, Bob Keys. Mom and Dad had many happy times at dances, playing cards, and just partying with Bunny and Doug.

I have known Bunny Norton for over 50 years. She always treated me very well regardless of the circumstances. I believe we had a mutual respect for each other. Although I did not see much of her these last few years, I can honestly say that I will miss her. She was a wonderful lady. God Bless Her...
