She was an awesome teacher, I had her in 6th grade. She is one of the reasons that I was inspired to be a substitute teacher for 12 years. I am thankful that she is now teaching in heaven.

I never knew Norma but i knew her granddaughter and her son. Her granddaughter Kendra reflects her smile in everything she does at Crossroads. and her son pastors a church that I have known through its plants, Center and Remix. We will miss Norma, but we know she is in heaven. Stephen Gopaul, Crossroads Community Cathedral

Mrs. Schmidt was my 6th grade teacher at Treakle Elementary in Chesapeake. She was one of my favorite teachers and I will always remember her fondly. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

To my precious and dearest Family: You are all greatly loved. And thought the massive loss of a magnificent parent is a life long hole that never fills, always know you were DEEPLY blessed to have had TWO epic parents that people from many continents loved and adored them both. I know I surely did... I truly and deeply did. I send my most sincere condolences and know God has told both of them "well done." I share your pain and send my prayers. Most sincerely and with great love, Elaine E. Iagatta

She was truly one of the most beautiful women God ever gifted to the world 😍 She was very first Sunday school teacher, in the tiny building by the water tower in Great Bridge. Prayers for the family during this time of grief. May you all find comfort in knowing she lived for Jesus and as God promises, she is now free from all sickness and pain, safe in the arms of her Savior ✝️💜
