Norma was a very active member in her church. She served the Lord with her whole heart, and loved sharing God’s love with anyone she came in contact with. She was a devoted Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. Norma will be dearly missed by all those who knew her.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23
