  1. My sincerest sympathy to all of you. May your memories comfort you in this difficult time. I met Nora after moving into MacEwan Glen 5 years ago. One of the loveliest and spunky little ladies I have ever met. I always loved her pineapple dessert she would bring to potluck. Nora will be missed a lot in our community.
