  1. I don't have a one particular memory of Norma but I do have a fondness for and cared a great deal for Norma. We were exercise buddies at Curves for a long time. We had good conversations and shared family stores. I was shocked to hear of her passing. Curves closed down so I haven't seen her since then. My condolences go to her family.

  2. Norma was a Beloved Friend and Sister in the Lord whom we served the Lord together for many years at the Gathering Place Church Coffee Ministries! She was a very special person who we will miss dearly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

  3. We will always remember the time we spent with Norma as one filled with laughter. Her infectious smile will be missed. Our condolences to David and Brian and their families during this difficult time. Darrel, Beth, Leigh, Ryan Mead and Families

  4. I will miss Norma terribly. Her and I just in the last four years or so have become good friends. I will miss her smile, and her positive attitude, her intelligence that was beyond compare. She always made me feel good when I talked to her. She is one God's Angels. Bless you Norma.
