Memories Timeline


  1. Norma was friends with my mother, Barbara Greenwood, for years. Mother passed from complications from Leukemia in February. I have many fond memories of Norma sitting at our dining room table when I was a little girl. She holds a special place in my heart. My sympathies to her family.

  2. I worked with Norma for years at Hillsboro Hospital. She was a great person. Always had a smile on her face. Prayers to all the family

  3. May the words at Isaiah 25:8 bring you all much needed comfort. There it states that " The Sovereign Lord Jehovah will swallow up death forever ". Those words bought me much comfort when my dad and brother both died. Hope it will do the same for you. Your neighbor and friend. Maddy Hernandez

  4. Your mother was such a sweet and caring lady she would always help others and she loved her family we are so sorry for your loss God bless you all

  5. So sorry for your lost. God's Word says at 1Cor 15:26 that, "the last enemy death., will be brought to nothing." Truly a joyous time awaits all obedient mankind because death will be no more. In the near future when God's Kingdom comes, we are reminded about the joy we will experience for Acts 24:15,says, "that there will be a resurrection of righteous and the unrighteous. This is made possible because our loving father Jehovah God sent his son Jesus Christ to die for all of us. May this bring comfort to you. Your friend and neighbor. SH
