Condolences to Pamela and family at this sad time. We always enjoyed our visits at Princes Court and loved chatting and joking with Norm when we were visiting Bill and Bobby in Johansen Unit. A wonderful gentleman who always greeted us with a smile and a story. Regards from Jean and Bill, Wayne and Di ClarkeMarch 30, 2022
Norm and Maisie were such a lovely couple – now they are both reunited. I have lovely memories of them both.April 4, 2022
My thoughts with the family today as you say goodbye to Norm – you will have lots of lovely memories to look back on.
Uncle Norm was born between the two world wars and would go on to serve his country and family in the second world war. He grew up in near poverty through no fault of his own and might have wondered why he should fight for a country which to that point in time had given him so little. He falsified his birth date so that he could enlist despite not being old enough to do so.
Luckily, he survived to marry the love of his life, Maisie, and raise three children.
On the rare occasions that they visited Ballarat to see his brother, Arthur, and his sister, Linda ( and families) our house would be full of laughter and good humour with six cousins running riot while Norm and big brother enjoyed a cold beer (shandy for the ladies) and re- lived old times.
It’s impossible to compress 99 years into a few sentences but in summary, he was a good bloke, a loving husband and father, honest, true to his word and fiercely loyal to his family.
I don’t believe you could ask more of a person than that
Australia has lost one of its best.
Rest in peace with your MaisieApril 5, 2022
