December 24, 1912 – November 10, 2011
Norma passed away peacefully at Rocky View General Hospital on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at the age of 98 years.
Norma moved from Webbwood, Ontario to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan as a very young child due to the sudden loss of her mother, to be raised by her Aunt Bea and Uncle Percy Ryan. She was an outstanding student, and at the conclusion of her schooling her passion for learning led her to the Teaching Department at the Moose Jaw Normal School. Once graduated, she accepted a teaching position in South Saskatchewan where she met her husband-to-be Clair, and subsequently began a very dedicated family life raising their three children. Norma re-entered the teaching profession in the early fifties at the Calgary Catholic School District. Her passion for learning and excellent teaching skills resulted in a positive learning experience for her students and a long-standing teaching career.
She was predeceased by her husband Clair on September 30, 1980.
She will be sadly missed by her loving children, Jim (Rita), Jean (Roger Andersen), and Patricia (late John Colville); and her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchild.
Norma’s life was dedicated to her family, friends and her long standing career teaching in the Calgary Separate School system.
