I am sorry to hear of the loss of Marion. I would like to offer you and your family our deepest and most sincere condolences on behalf of Jessie Drury and family. I remember many sleep overs at the Norris household. Especially trick or treating in town and coming home with pillowcases of candy with Carol. Your mother was a lovely generous woman. May God be your comfort and strength during this difficult time. Linda Green

Our deepest sympathy for your family's loss. Mrs Norris was so good to my mother, Beulah Carlberg, a friend, a neighbor and fellow Baptist Church member. Mr. and Mrs. Norris would pick Mom up for church, check in on her if she wasn't going and visited Mom often just to check if she needed anything. We appreciate the caring and friendship they had. Good memories.

We have not talked to marion directly but over many years, often because of kids, became frineds with Brian and family especially Kate, the Guthrie and Hooper families.....based on these folks and having met Robert briefly we know that Marion too had a lasting effect on her children and their families. They are all committed to servive to family and community---Mum Marion and Dad Robert did great jobs indeed--what woderful memories they must have provided. Mum /Grandma will be missed indeed. Your hearts will be full and hurting with so many reasons to be very thankful in the longer run. May angels watch over you all......June and dave Jones
