She was such a loving, caring person. She reached out to me several times since my spinal cord injury even though her health was failing. You were all blessed to have her in your lives. She will be missed.

    I am so sorry for the loss of such a wonderful loving lady. I too have many wonderful childhood memories with Norma and the family. She was one of “our” neighborhood moms and all of us knew she would take care of us at any given moment. I know your family will be lost without her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Terry , Tom, Todd and daughter in law, grand babies and great grand babies as you all face the hard days ahead. Just know your momma was loved dearly by our whole family.

    I was so sorry to learn of Norma’s passing. My prayers are with all the family. Norma and I were in the same Herrin High School graduating class and reconnected after marriage and living in Marion. My husband taught and coached in Marion and my son and Norma’s became acquainted/friends. I will miss her beautiful smile and funny stories.

    I was so sorry to hear of Norma’s passing. My sympathy to her family. We shared many good times as close neighbors when our children were young. Always enjoyed a good conversation when we would meet at the Hub or just out shopping. She certainly loved her family and I especially admired her zest for having a good time.
