While it has been many years since I have seen Norma, I cherish how kind she was to us kids. Always making us feel like she was everyone's grandmother. xxooxx

Remembering how sweet Norma was and to have 5 children to raise, that was quite an accomplishment. She always pointed them to Jesus Christ by her words, actions and deeds. She finished her life well and must be absolutely amazed to be in the presence of Christ Jesus, her Lord and Savior God. Praying HE will comfort her family.

Arnold and Norma were my baptismal sponsors, and who. along with Tim, attended my confirmation in California in 1967. I have cherished childhood memories of times spent with your family. Those summer days on the farm were an important part in my childhood. I was blessed to be welcomed by Norma and by your grandma, my Aunt Annie. I keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this time.
