“Norma was like a Grandma to me she would come out and have coffee with the ladies . I would always sit with them when I was on break. I use to take her a fruit plate before Christmas. She would always tell me oh I don't need this lol. Norma will be missed dearly but she is with her husband and son and daughter now , probably having a big reunion right now. R.I.P.
