  4. Norma was one of a kind. Generous, determined and always there for family. No matter the time or the issue.
    Norma was a devoted and loving sister in law and dear friend to Mercia ( deceased ) who always enjoyed her company each Thursday as they talked of all things family and were often heard laughing about times past.
    Norma was also the adored daughter in law of Leslie and Lillian Byrnes. And an amazing auntie to Arthur ( deceased), Janine, Louise ( aka Wink) and Helen. A loving great aunt to Jessica and Joel.
    She was truely inspirational in how to be a decent person who treated everyone equally. And what about that sponge cake !!
    Rest In Peace auntie Norma…
