  11. Hi Sis, Its me again. Well ! What can I say about my dear younger sister “Norma May”. Such a lively Spirit-n-individual. While mostly sparking on all—2-4-6 – or even 8 cylinders plus at times over her very active life time. A Great Great grand- child of earlier Rural Settler Families off South Gippsland,s Powlett-River district. Her early years were spent on growing up-n-helping out on her parents Dairy Farm @ Leongatha South. Always joining in any local social activities including Dancing-n-Games etc. Early school days @ Gatha Sth, then on to Higher level @ Leongatha High in the 1950 s. Then on to Teachers College “Toorak” in Melbourne to further her education. Later on found herself Teaching @ her old school @ L-gatha High for some yrs. I believe always developing her artistic talents-skills, with regards to textiles, becoming a skillfull seamstress-n-dressmaker,etc . But always deeply attached to the Land -n- Outdoors her Gardens etc. Always ready and willing to share the work load on their own Dairy Farm @ Dumbalk with her partner-Husband- John-n-their three Daughters-Helen-Kerrie-n-Christine. Now, as I look around, and see the various faces of the people that got to know her over those many years. I must conclude, that I believe her very full active life, was really worth the effort that she had put into it. I now offer many Blessings to all her Family -n-friends that got to know her. I thank you all. Cheers for now . From your elder brother Bob Robert John Louis .
