  12. My heart goes out to all who love her. Teaching was her calling. She loved teaching the grand kids new things and led them in the right direction with home work.
    She had a tough exterior but the hugest heart. She had a tear in her eyes many times to show her soft side.
    I had the privilege of visiting ever weekend. I usually ended up having a late lunch when there.. There was always home made soup made from the weeks leftovers or her spaghetti sauce.
    She cherished her family and never said no to baby sitting her grand kids.
    Norma you will always be remembered ❤

  13. Les mots me manquent. C’est tellement triste de perdre un être cher, ça l’est encore plus durant cette période de l’année. J’ai de beaux souvenirs de Norma, entre autre la fois où elle était venue chez mon oncle et mangé des framboises. Je me souviendrai surtout de la fierté qu’elle avait dans les yeux quand elle parlait de ses enfants et petits-enfants. Mes sincères condoléances.

    C’est avec une grande tristesse que j’ai appris le décès de Norma. Tellement de beaux et grands souvenirs de cette femme extra ordinaires! Debis mon premier semestre a l’université, là ou j’ai connu la mère et la fille! Une femme passionée par la vie et sa famille et tous les amis qu’elle acceptait dans sa vie et dans sa cuisine. J’ai tellement de bons souvenirs, et combiens de fois nous avons refait le monde en marchant la runway de l’aérport McEwen.
    Elle est une femme inoubliable, une famille inoubliable. Vous êtes tous dans mes humbles prières.
    Faudra se revoir une fois la pandémie fini.

  19. Gisèle et moi étions bien tristes d’apprendre la nouvelle du décès de notre voisine, Norma.Nos pensées sont avec votre famille durant ces temps difficiles. À ce que l’on peut lire dans l’avis de décès, il est évident que Norma a eu une vie bien vécue. Il est admirable qu’elle soit retournée aux études à l’Université de Moncton, en 1990, pour accéder à la carrière de travailleuse sociale. Nous savons qu’elle a beaucoup souffert durant sa maladie mais nous sommes soulagés qu’elle repose maintenant en paix. Nos sincères sympathies à toute la famille Chamberlain.
