  1. Jim and Kathy O'Reilly :

    Our sincere condolences to Joyce, and the McNally family. We always enjoyed stories of his adventures when he was starting out, including rides in small planes and surveying over rough terrain. His knowledge, experience and conversations that were such a part of him, will be remembered. We’ll miss Norm’s Christmas letter–imagine, embracing email at his age!–as he shared his memories of your activities throughout the year, always so proud of his family. Thinking of you in this time of sorrow. Jim and Kathy and the O’Reilly family

    Byron and I send sincere condolences to Joyce and family. I’m pretty sure we have known Norm for almost 50 years through the cattle business. He was a real character — lots of chutzpah!! He will be missed.

    Dear Joyce, Dianne, Lynda and Greg

    So sorry to hear of Norm’s passing! I’m on vacation in the USA so won’t be able to attend the prayers or funeral but wanted to tell you what high regard I’ve always had for Norm. I never had the privilege of working for Norm (stories by McLynn/Taylor/Funnell etc. were classics!!) but I did learn a great deal from him; especially through hearings and court cases. Norm was character; a clever and fierce combatant and will forever be a legend in our industry.

    Sincere & heart felt condolences for your loss,

    Gerry & Pat McAllister

    Joyce, Lynda, Rob, Robyn and family: Deepest condolences from the Clark family on your loss. Norm was a unique and stalwart member of the landman community. He could tell a story like no other … especially his “fishing” story re the 1989 CAPL conference in Victoria. We will miss the twinkle in his eye and his love for business. We are better for having known him. God Bless.

    To Lady Joyce and the Family of

    Sir Knight Norman McNally, PGK

    As Former Master of the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, Alberta South District, and on behalf of SK John Timmermans Assembly I wish to extend my most sincere condolences to you and the family of Sir Knight Norm. He was a very dedicated Knight of Columbus, a Charter Grand Knight and a long time member of Airdrie Council 8045 and a Charter member of SK John G. Timmermans Assembly 2632, he will be greatly missed.

    It is sad to realize that death has cut short another life, the life of one of our respected and cherished members, a Sir Knight. It is indeed sad to realize that the ties of friendship and fraternal affection which bound him to our Order have been severed.

    In our sadness we are consoled by the thought that he, whom we knew and loved, is forever at rest. His labors are finished and a good and faithful servant has been called to meet his Maker.

    Our hearts go out in deepest sympathy to those who remain to mourn. Their loss is a heavy one, their bereavement great, but we ask Almighty God in His Goodness and Kindness, to console them. For those who knew Sir Knight Norm, “We loved him in life; Let us not forget him in death”.

    May he now rest in peace.
