I loved sis Gardner she was so fun and I knew if I couldn’t help someone she could. I loved just sitting and visiting with her. Always had a smile even when she was having her back and health problem 🥰
I have been so blessed to have you as a friend. Anytime we would see each other you would very sincerely ask how I have been and legitimately cared for the wellbeing of those around you. Anytime I was sad or upset you always knew and would just talk with me. You will forever be missed.
I will love and miss you so much grandma, until we meet again 🌹
I have known Norma since she was in our Stake in Clearfield. When I began my service mission at the
Family Service Center in LAyton, she was my mentor. I appreciated her help so much. I admired her knowledge of genealogy work and the Spirit of the work she had. I am so sorry for your loss. She will be missed. With love, Sharon Thompson
We will miss Norma and want her family to know we loved her. We know you have a lot of fond memories of your mother and have the family in our prayers.
