Mark & Brothers & Families - sending sincere condolences. Not sure how many memories you all have of the times shared as kids when our dads were both working at Rochester Dairy/Polly Meadows but I have many. Especially when my dad was putting a basement under our house in Byron. Miss seeing you Mark - hope you’re all doing well.
So many good memories of Norma and Bob at the Log Cabin Restaurant. Always a good time. RIP
We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with all of you - Wayne, David, Dan and Mark and your families. Rosie (Strelow) and Duane Evans
One of my favorite pictures of Mom. High school graduation
A favorite aunt and dear friend to my parents. I remember many fun picnics in the Arches Park with our cousins. Norma always had an infectious laugh and good humor with never a dull moment in her presence. My deepest sympathies to family . Cherish the fond memories. Sandi
Norma made a big impression on me throughout my childhood and later in life. She was always fun to talk to and be around. My sympathies to the family- I wish I could be at the services. I will be thinking of you all and praying for your peace!
