  • Hello….I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one and share a hope promised in the Bible.
    “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” (John 5:28, 29)
    With the loss of your loved one I hope you can make a little time to study the Bible for yourself.
    I hope that seeing the promise for yourself, and making this resurrection hope your very own, can give you some genuine comfort during this difficult time.
    Thank you for reading my message.

  • Norma was a beautiful lady. I had the honor of meeting her and working with her during my years as an assistant in the Activities Department of Country Court Nursing Home. Norma faithfully read her Bible and always had a smile when i visited her. I will miss her.

  • We miss your smiling face and kindness at Country Court. What a beautiful lady.

  • I’m so saddened to hear of Norma’s passing. What a sweet and gentle spirit she always had! My earliest church memories are of Norma playing the organ at my home church, Wheelersburg Nazarene. She was a blessing and will be missed. My condolences to your family.
