Memories & Candles
My heart aches for all of you. I'm so sorry to read of the passing of Norma. What a great person she was. She always made me smile and I enjoyed her honesty and sincerity. When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. Know that your whole family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Uncle Larry & family,
Uncle Larry and Aunt Norma have always been there for us and we are forever grateful. How precious the memories and how you all are so precious to us. Only through our faith and our Lord will we get along without her.
She planned our wedding 44 years ago. and always was there to care for our children, Aunt Norma was always there. She was with my dad everyday when he went down with a stroke, until

Norma was a significant role model for me--as she was for so many others! My confidante, surrogate mother, and wonderful friend. We might go for a long time without contact, but I always knew she was there for me, in the worst of times. We also had countless fun times--at the lake, at holiday meals, and whenever our paths crossed. My sister, Carla, still fondly recalls her birthday, when Norma showed me how to make a "doll cake" for her.

My heart is broken over the death of precious Norma. I have missed both you & her smiling face & spirited personality so much. I so wish I would have called her or dropped in to see her, to tell her how much she was missed & loved.
I will always remember her delicious, melt in your mouth cinnamon rolls, and how she was always willing to bake them for any special event, no matter how many were needed.

We were shocked to learn of Norma's sudden death. We are unable to attend services as we will be out of the state for a few days. Larry and Michelle and rest of the family, as well as Donna and Vernon, we send our deepest sympathies to all of you. You have been in our thoughts for these past few days. Blessings to all of you.

I loved spending time at Norma's house with the neighborhood girls. She was a mom to many of us, and treated us that way! She was never mad at us, just gave us that stern look. Then gave us kool-aid and cookies! Anytime I saw Norma she was smiling. She LOVED her family so much and was very proud of them. My love and prayers go out to all of you. Until we all meet again, we'll miss you Norma. Love, Anita Walters (Helgeson)

Betty and I moved away, but we took fond memories with us. Norma is there. We can never forget the wild hockey games and "Dumb Goalie" The penny ante poker games and just plain being together.Anyone who ever met Norma will be greatly missed as time moves on.
