Nora (Mom) was always the teacher; whether she was in the school room, in the kitchen at home, or in the garden or in the barn. We were told that when the school children came to visit at the Lodge her face would light up thinking of the small minds there to teach the wonders of the world. She was a stubborn, ferocious, loving wife while caring for her husband Bill throughout his long illness. She cared deeply for her children and their families; always supporting them in their many endeavors. She was a grand lady; Matriarch of the family; a loving caring Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Great Great Grandmother, Aunt, Sister, Daughter and Wife. We will cherish her Memory.
The Family would like to thank the staff at Newhope Pioneer Lodge for their loving care of Nora during her time there. Their kindness was obvious in the contentment and well-being of Nora.
