My Great Aunt Norma was one of the kindest people I have ever known!!!! When I was a young girl I would walk down from the farm!!!! (Harmon 's and Jewell's) We would just sit and visit and have the greatest time!!!! You were always welcome at Russ and Norma's!!!! I will miss her and always love her dearly!!!!

Mom Mom Weaver was a loving and generous soul. She was a hard-working woman who cared for so many -- her family, her friends and any stray animal that wandered into her yard. She was everything a grandmother should be and more. I have fond memories of being able to stay up late to watch Fantasy Island when I slept over her house and memories of her trying to teach me how to crochet. As a child, Christmas was so exciting because Mom Mom Weaver made it special. She gave great gifts but what I loved the most was helping her decorate the Christmas tree as she scrambled to wrap the gifts. A lover of music, a friend to all felines and a feisty woman who had a colorful way of expressing herself -- those are the Norma qualities that I see in myself and I couldn't be more proud. I will remember her every time I make potato salad and forget to add the pickle juice and every time I'm tempted to take in another homeless cat. She will be missed but never forgotten.

I was always known as Donnie's Linda by the Weaver family. I guess that's how they kept track of the husbands and wives and who each one belonged to. Norma, I am so glad to have known you and your husband Russ, the Weaver Family accepted me as one of their own and you were one of those Weaver's. I pray God gives your family peace and comfort through this time of grief. With peace and love, Linda

I met Norma on September 23 1972, after arriving from Spain with husband Terry and daughter Tricia. She welcomed with plenty of love and treated me like her own daughter. We spent many times together and she taught me how to bowl, thanks to her I almost became an expert at that game and we bowled in the same team for a number of years. She was always happy to see us and carried many good conversations about family and friends. Thanks to you Norma I learned some of my best English vocabulary, you are going to be missed so much, not only you were my second mother but also my best friend. Clara Weaver

Norma will always have a special place in my heart. She taught me how to can tomatoes, She was a great cook. Made the best fried chicken in the big iron skillet. What I will always remember is going to Libby's in January when they butchered the pigs. Being a city girl this was all new. I never saw so many skillets going to can sauages and pork. She was a great Mother and grandmother.She always made everyone feel at home. I am sure she will be missed greatly.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

For 3 years in the mid-'50's we lived between Uncle Russ and Uncle Harmon. My brother and I would often go down the road to play with the cousins, but as the only girl in the gang I would drift over to wherever Aunt Norma was working her gardens. At some point she began to teach me needlework and introduced me to a method called huck weaving. I became a whiz at it and was so proud of my new skill. I lost contact with my larger family as I grew up and it was only about two years ago I returned to the area to reconnect with those I loved an missed. Uncle Russ remembered me, but Norma did not. But that didn't keep us from having a wonderful visit! We chatted about whatever came to her mind and even then she was a gracious hostess. I caught glimpses of the vivacious young wife and mother (and my grown-up friend) peeking out as we talked. Our visit is one of my little 'treasures'.

I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was almost like an aunt to me while I was growing up and I loved the stories and hearing about the "old times" when she and Mom got together. I don't remember her ever saying an unkind word to me. Please accept my sincere sympathy.
