Our sincere condolences to Norma’s family. I am a cousin from Thunder Bay. Norma was my mom’s namesake Rosalie. My mom was Rosalie Mackie. I have fond memories of Norma when we were kids growing up on the farm in Manitoba.

Summers in the Okanagan were always something special. It was the highlight of mum's year when all the family from around Canada would converge at our place to enjoy the fruit, sun and long summer nights that the Okanagan is famous for. Family meant a lot to mum. Love you mum!

One thing I can remember is Christmas mom would bake for weeks on end making all kinds of goodies for the family and friends. Our house would be full of people during the holiday season and on christmas day no less than 15 family and friends would gather for dinner. I'm going to miss those times. Love you mom and miss you.
