A friend for life, Norma's quick smile and infectious laughter was a treasure that will be missed by her friends from her hometown of Rotherham Yorkshire, England, to Deep River, Kincardine, and Oshawa, Ontario. From Lambretta Scooters to motoring exploits with MGs and Motor Racing, Norma's spirit of adventure was a never ending source of inspiration and amusement for those that loved her.
Norma was an active and enthusiastic member of the Oshawa YMCA and rarely missed her early morning Aquafit. Similarly she enjoyed golfing at Pebblestone, bowling at Nebs Funworld, or playing bridge at the North Oshawa Seniors Centre. She loved fine cinema and cherished her participation with Cinechats for over a decade. Lastly, Norma had a wanderlust that took her to destinations around the world. Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and her beloved New Zealand, were all stamped in her well worn passport.
Donations to Lakeridge Health Oshawa in lieu of flowers would be appreciated.
