Norma was a beautiful person inside and out. I loved her with all of my heart. She was my one and only sister. I could tell her anything and she always understood. My heart is shattered into a million pieces, but I know where she is and who she is with, her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Norma was a blessed Bible teacher. She taught and exemplified the very heart of the word and of God. She will be sorely missed. Praying for you you Gerry and family.

Norma was such a blessing to so many! She definitely showed the love of Christ to everyone, had the kindest heart and always an encouraging word at just the right time, I know she's rejoicing with the Lord, but she will be deeply. Praying for the family.
