Norma was a sweet lady to have known – we worked for the same cpmpany – NCS – for a good many years and it was always fun to have her around   – to hear her wisdom and her no nonsence ways – always with a listening ear.

Knowing this family is such an honor, which speaked very highly of its matriarch. Norma, you will truly be missed. I’m a firm believer that you are at peace, and the sunny sky today is proof of that. I also believe we are supposed to be at certain places at certain times, and I was supposed to be with you. Dianne, Bar and Carol I truly thank you for allowing me the privilage to get to know your family, and am keeping you in my prayers <3

I will always remember Norma and her infectious giggle & laugh and her sparkly eyes! She was an amazing Mom and great friend of our Hull family from years gone by. Many fond memories of her as I spent oodles of time at their Strasburg farmhouse with her daughter Barb. She’s got all the angels laughing by now I’m sure!

I worked with Norma for many years at National Computer Systems and will always remember her fondly.  She was a stellar example of how everyone should live their lives and treat people-we are all richer for having known her.  To her children and grandchildren, you were the center of her life and there was nothing she enjoyed more that telling stories about all of you.  She loved you dearly and I hope all your warm and wonderful memories of her will bring you comfort in the coming days.  I know she will be honored in heaven!

My thoughts and prayers for the family. I remember your mom with such fondness. Her generosity and love to us college “kids” stays with me to this day. So much love and laughter on the many weekend jaunts to Strasburg.  She truly was an angel among us.
