NORMA MARIAN MACMILLAN
Mom was the rock of our family. She will be forever missed by her husband Alvin, children, Ross (Edith), Bev (Bruce) and Darren (Tammy); her eight precious grandchildren, Jody (Travis), Jeff (Sarah), Chris (Tanya), Jason (Teaghan), Tracy (Tyler), Lisa, Courtney (Sheldon), Robyn (Bob). She loved her five great-grandchildren dearly, Tanner, Karsten, Ensley, Everett, and Boden. She is also survived by her brother Bev (Sheila) Sherred, sister-in-law Eleanor Sherred, sister-in-law Pat Sherred, and sister-in-law Jean (Ken) Mercer.
Mom was born in Wawanesa on August 20, 1929. She later moved to Winnipeg to work in the insurance business, and met Alvin while spending the weekend with her friend in Marquette. Alvin and Norma were married on June 29, 1957 and enjoyed 64 years together.
Curling was a passion for Mom, she curled in many bonspiels and quite often came home a winner. She spent countless hours sitting in her favourite chair watching the Toronto Blue Jays and curling events with her knitting needles in hand. There are many people wearing the mitts, slippers and shawls that she has made over the years. Mom and Dad played crib daily. If you stopped by their house after supper it wasn't out of the ordinary to hear mom and dad arguing over whose crib was next or who counts first. The grandchildren loved to witness this and picked sides just to stir the pot.
She loved her kids and grandkids and rarely missed any of their sporting events.
Over the years, Mom was involved in many community activities including the Meadow Lea Church, Curling Club, Community Hall and as well as 4H. She was known as the "go to" person for names, dates, and history of our community.
She will be remembered for her amazing kindness, her interest in others, her smile and laugh. She instilled in all of us her love of family. She was our biggest supporter. She will be sadly missed but at the same time we were incredibly blessed to have had many happy healthy years with her.
A graveside funeral service will be held July 24, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at the Meadow Lea Cemetery.
Donations, if so desired, can be made to the Meadow Lea Church, or a charity of your choice.
