Just saw where Normi had passed. I worked at the library with her. She was a great co-worker! R.I.P. Normi!!!!!!!
I was sorry to hear of Norma’s passing. I would visit with her when I visited my mother, Gent Gregg, at Altercare. Norma liked to play Bingo there, and always attended the Church services. I missed her on that last Sunday and inquired about her. She will be missed.
I just read of Norm’s passing and I am so very sorry. I know we have lost touch over the years but will never forget our years of working together and how very sweet Norm was. You are in my prayers.
To Daryl and family – what can we say – so many great memories of Norma! It’s been a long haul and she is at peace now! Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Gene and Sharon, and Kim and family, and Scott.
My deepest sympathy to the entire Riedel family. I am sorry that I will be unable to attend calling hours due to traveling out of state. You are all in my prayers. I always found it a bit amusing that Norma would seem to always refer to me as Ebbeskotte. MOST folks seem to avoid trying to say it, but I grew to expect it and found it endearing. I am thankful that I had a chance to sing Christmas Carols last year when we were at the home and had hoped to do so again this year. My your many wonderful memories of Norma and the knowledge that she awaits you in heaven, ease the pain in your hearts.
