Dear Susan, We were so sorry to read of Norma's passing. She and Uncle "Wick" were a huge part of our childhoods. We eagerly looked forward to their visits to Toronto and Temagami. We know you will miss her and so will many others especially the "children" of the members of the bridge club. She was a "Fairy Godmother" to all of us.

Susan Thank you for letting the Gardiner know. I am in Mexico and would not have seen it in any paper. I knew Norma and Ewart first through Betty and George MacDonald in Mtl. And then later reconnected in Toronto again through Betty and then at the Gardiner because I was a docent there. I know you will miss her terribly. Gail Brooker

Norma will be so missed at the Gardiner, even though a Sustaining Member. I knew her when I first started there some 25 years ago. What a wonderful and thoughtful person. She will be so missed by all God Bless

Dear Susan, and members of Norma's family, I was so very sad to hear of Norma's death. She was the most wonderful lady, it was a great delight to know her. She contributed so much to the Gardiner Museum and was beloved by us all: Helen Gardiner, her fellow volunteers, the staff and the public. Her lovely smile and charming, helpful personality will be long remembered and treasured. I will miss her. With sincere condolences, Meredith Meredith Chilton Founding Curator and Acting Chief Curator Gardiner Museum
