Dear Stan and family - I had the pleasure of being with Norma (and you, too, Stan) on several occasions because of your friendship with my sister, Joan and her husband, Leonard. Norma was always so sweet, friendly and fun-loving. We talked at Price Chopper quite frequently. We shared some laughs and it was always fun to see her. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so sorry for your loss. - Sincerely, Sandy Garling

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the Ordon family. I worked with Norma at Price Chopper, and I always enjoyed her sense of humor, and her kindness towards others. She always came to my picnics in the country, and always brought with her something delicious she made. Norma was one of my favorite people, and I will miss her dearly. May God bless and hold her close.

My deepest sympathies again, June Waddell
