When she wasn’t volunteering, she thoroughly enjoyed working in her amazing and picturesque yard, as well as being an ever-present grandmother to her two grandsons. All of these things gave her immense joy and satisfaction, up until two months before her passing.

She was beautiful and inspiring, up until her last moments in this life. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She lives on in those who loved her. Norma is survived by her husband, Michael J. Gavin, daughters Teresa Gavin and Naomi Gavin and grandsons Gavin L. Wingate and Jackson Meyer.
