Saying goodbye to someone we love is heartbreaking. May you find comfort in all the special memories you shared. I had only met Norma many years ago as a child but still remember her kind face and disposition. Not unlike my Auntie Jean. We are sorry for your loss. Philip & Kathae Knight
My great auntie Norma is about as close to a Saint as I've ever encountered in my life. This woman exuded qualities that I wish I had, with such ease; but if you knew her, you'd know those qualities came with decades of practice. She loved me for me and always met me where I was. If I was having a bad week or month- she'd say, "Jason, my boy....if you focus on what's wrong too long, you'll never see what isn't." She knew how to snap me out of pretty much any funk I was in over the course of the past 25 years. To me she was like a "father confessor", if I made a mistake- whether honest, stupid, or otherwise- I'd seek advice and I wouldn't get an ounce of judgement. She'd give her nickel's worth of two cents, but she was always approachable and always made herself available to talk about anything. She always told me to be a blessing to other people whenever possible. She would never abandon me or anyone if she knew the heart and mind of a person. This astounded me because she herself has known abandonment. She lived a hard life working in manufacturing, taking on the full mantle of responsibilities that weren't necessarily hers to undertake, but she did it. She was robustly stubborn and deliciously proud of her ability to stand on her own two feet; while at the same time bearing wrongs gracefully and patiently. That quality alone amazed me. She had grit, as well as grace. She had it in her to not allow her heart and soul be poisoned by life's lemons or negative people. Her fortitude, integrity, and sense of humanity alone are part of what has helped me to continue to strive to be the best decent man I can possibly be. Of all my familial relationships outside of my immediate family- hers was the most humbling & inspiring. Rest In Peace auntie Norma- you've earned it. Love, Jason, yer boy!
