    Met Bob and Norma in 1985. Nicer couple not to be found! Always doing for others and poo-pooing attempts to do for them. She will be missed as she once again listens to Bob play the autoharp.
    God Bless the family.

    Norma taught me to crochet and she made elaborate and creative crocheted works of art from scarves to throws to potholders and so much more. Norma was an example of a true Christian-she never deceived to achieve or was dishonest in any way and would never take advantage of anyone. Norma stood for integrity, compassion, empathy and the truth. Values I also live by. I admired her strength and perseverance as she battled many health issues. God Bless, Norma. A true Christian.
