I am really going to miss Norma! I always looked forward to seeing her. I told her once that she would make a great First Lady, so gracious and friendly to everyone. She told me she didn't think Johnny would want to be president! She always kept me up to date with grand children and great grand children. I am so blessed to have known her. You are all in my prayers.

Bert, Joan, Lee, Karen and Family, Aunt Norma was such a beautiful, kind, and elegant woman. We will miss her warmth and loving spirit. She always had a way of making us feel welcome and at ease in her company. We are especially grateful that she made the trek all the way to England to attend our wedding and we will never forget the lovely visits we got to share with her each time we were able to travel back to Ohio. We are thinking of you and all her extended family during this time. Our deepest sympathy and condolences are with you. Love, Chris, Tara, Charley, Isabel & Jack

What fun and good times we had when we were young and our husbands were at our side. You will always be remembered as kind, happy, gracious, and all the other nice adjectives! Remember our New Year's parties and the one at our pool because everyone had gone to Florida that year for the Bowl Game--happy memories! Norma Jean Taylor.
