  • Norma was a close friend to my parents, especially my mom Cathy (Nichols) Giesbrecht who passed away in 2016. I remember as a young child going to Norma’s house and playing with her little girl, they had a little play room under their stairs. Norma was very nice and kind and let me try my first sip of coffee!! RIP Norma, hope you and mom will be having tea and coffee and catching up up in Heaven!❤️ - Posted by: Shannon Neufeld (Late moms close friend from years ago) on: Jul 02, 2022
