I recently moved to Lake Geneva and noticed Norma's obituary and realized I knew her as a child when I lived in Chicago. She was a dear friend of my Mother, Pauline Becker. I have fond memories of Norma and her family growing up. I want to extend my deepest sympathy to the family . I will always remember the fond memories I have of your wonderful family.

Joe - Julie and I were saddened to hear that Norma passed away. We have so many fond memories thru the years from the couples bowling league to Lions Club gatherings, and just in passing when we’d catch up with you both. When we think of kind and first class people, we have always thought of you and Norma. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We pray you all find peace, hope and strength knowing Norma is in Heaven and making it a better place with her being there. God Bless you and yours… Tom and Julie Bence
