Norma was the type of person that loved people to the fullest. If you knew her, you loved her. She had a very caring personality who could reach out to anyone. Her calling in life was working with children. She had a way with them that could calm them down and ease even the most unruly child. She worked at the Burleson ISD daycare and enjoyed it so much she worked while going through chemo and even worked up until a few weeks before she passed.
We can tell how much she was loved by the outpouring of the community. Many people stopped by to see her and those who couldn’t sent kind words. She recognized and greeted everyone with a smile. She read or heard all of her messages and her face would light up.
She will be truly missed by her family and friends. We look forward to seeing her in heaven.
