To the St Charles Family
I want to express my deepest sympathy for your loss of one great lady.
I worked with Norma at E & L for many years, so many fun times, laughter,
and memories. I've known Norma for 36 yrs and lost touch with her over the last 10 and I am so sad for that. I am truly sorry for your loss

Norma, or Normie as Cheryl so endearingly refered to you,

I'm not quite sure when we first met, around the time of Cheryl and Chris's wedding in 1978. I was so struck by your warmth and thought, this is the "tough truck driver"? I already had such reverance for you for the way you brought up your family. Over the years I learned more about you which only made me admire you more. You were and elegant lady in

Aunt Norma. Words can't explain how much I will miss you. You are forever in my memories as well as my heart. You watched me grow up into the women I am today and I only wish we could spend one more day together. I love you so very much. May angels lead you in. <3>

I always looked forward to the times when my Aunt Norma would come to town. She always knew how to light up the room and get everyone laughing and having a good time. Growing up I would see my Grandma Lynne and Aunt Norma together enjoying each others company and bring the family together, I always hoped my sister and I would be just like them, best friends. There was nothing better than seeing those two joke with each other,

My grandma was the BEST grandma anyone could ever ask for. She was always there for me and everyone in the family. She was by far one of the most kind, caring, loving, giving, and respected people that I've ever had the pleasure to know. Some of my most cherished memories were spent with her. I'll never forget the precious time we had together and all the laughs we shared. I'll never forget the stories she told or the songs

My deepest sympathies to the family of Norma St. Charles. Norma was the most genuine, fun, loving, down to earth, young at heart and tell it to you straight kind of person. I enjoyed my time with her when she came to visit my wife's family here in California. She made me smile. Norma you will be missed!!!

Aunt Norma your life was cut short. You were doing so good and enjoying your life. It was just a short time ago this past summer you were laughing and having so much fun in California with all of us, Joe and Ella. My Mom and I had do much fun visiting you and our family in Michigan. The memories I have I will cherish forever. To my cousins Mark, Chris, Matt and Dave my thoughts are with you as

My deepest sympathy to your family. She meant so much to me. She will be missed. Here's to Norma: Love always.

♫And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and ev'ry highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way.♫
