  1. Norma Wilson is unquestionably one of the finest Christian women I have ever met. Unwavering in love, devotion, family loyalty, humility, sense of humor, good conversation, freedom, service and generosity. Norma was truly herself.
    Heaven is rejoicing and you will always be remembered by your loved ones on earth.❤

  2. What a blessing Norma was to all who knew her! Her devotion to her faith, family, and friends will forever remain in our hearts. Norma loved her kids with everything she had. How many games and events did she attend over the years? Her support for her family was unwavering. We had lots of fun cheering with her, and she will be greatly missed. The Bible says in Matthew 25:23, “Well done good and faithful servant.” This surely applies to our friend Norma.

  3. My dear friend Norma, my life line when I needed to talk about anything and I knew it would stay between us. My card player, choir member, we went to many annual meeting for church had a great time, trips to the lake. There has been so many things we have done together. I will cherish all these memories. May you Rest In Peace my dear friend.

  4. Norma my friend. She had dry humor could be serious and she was my friend. She was my card partner ” very seldom won”. I am going to miss her terribly Norma my friend. Rest in Peace.
