April 10, 1961 - July 6, 2020

It is with deep regret that we announce the loss of our dearly loved Norma after a courageous battle with cancer.
She is survived by her husband of 37 years, Russ, her children, Jessica and Matthew; her mother Jean; her sisters, Barb (Frank) and Carol (Roger); and her brother Tom; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father Harry.
Norma was born and raised in Minnedosa, MB and after graduating high school attended the University of Manitoba obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She worked in many graphic design fields including retail store design, catalog and flyer design, signage design, and later internet and social media branding.
Norma was also a great drawer and photographer. She was an avid reader and belonged to two book clubs. She loved going to Clear Lake to our cabin and enjoyed the lake life. She taught arts and crafts, drawing, Sunday School, sang in church choirs, and was a member of fundraising committees for school and pipe bands.
Cremation has taken place. A graveside service will be held on July 21 at 2:00 p.m. at the Minnedosa Cemetery.
A special thank you goes to all the personnel at unit 6A West at the St. Boniface Hospital for their wonderful care.

  • I have so many happy memories of time spent with Norma from residence and the year after when we shared an apartment. She was a wonderful person in so many ways, I feel privileged to have known her. - Posted by: Carolyn (Friend) on: Jul 12, 2020

  • I was very shocked and sad to hear of Norma's passing. Her daughter and my daughter went to school together. She was a wonderful friend to me, by accompanying her friend Anne and myself to information sessions about our cancer journeys. I would often see her at doctor's appointments as she was her friend's support. I appreciated her support through a very tough time in my life. A very positive and kind person. My condolences to Jessica, Matthew and Russ. - Posted by: Kerry Hilton (Friend) on: Jul 12, 2020

  • I am so so saddened to hear this news. Not a day has gone by this winter and spring that I haven't thought of Norma. I have many fond memories of having grown up beside the Jacks’ cabin. My mom and I always enjoyed visiting with Norma (and Jean) when they were enroute to the loo! Or meeting at 3 am and having a nice bathroom visit, which use to be the norm. We would try and remember to leave our outside light on for those midnight runs. I will always remember her beautiful smile, Friendly warm and caring manner, and musical laugh. My heart goes out to you all at this very sad time and In the years ahead. Sending many hugs and much love 💕 Jenna Mennie Clarke (neighbour at the lake) - Posted by: Jenna Mennie Clarke (Lake neighbour ) on: Jul 11, 2020
