“Our mom, Norma, loved the Lord and we are thankful she is rejoicing with Jesus in Heaven. It brings us comfort knowing that we will see her again. She was a lifetime learner that always had a stack of books beside her chair, including her worn Bible. Mom loved her family and friends with a selfless love. We always knew we were being prayed for daily, sometime hourly. Her grandchildren and two beautiful great grandchildren brought her so much joy. She was a hard worker and retired after 30 years from Mercy Medical Center. Mom always loved being outdoors and going on walks. She had a peace about her that could calm your spirit. We will miss her terribly but know she will be close by watching over us.”
