JEAN E. NORRIS (published on March 10, 2010)

JEAN E. NORRIS B.Sc. Nursing, R.N. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear wife and mother, Jean on March 8, 2010 at Vista Park, at the age of 80 years. Left to cherish her memory are her husband Douglas, three children Catherine McNabb (Paul), David Norris (Lizz), and Jeff Norris (Corinne), grandchildren Christina, Aiello (John), Dawn Hayward (Scott), Erik, Lisa, Anthony, and Carly, four great-grandchildren, and siblings Martha, George, Donna and John. Born in Twin Valley, MN on April 19, 1929, daughter of John and Alice Westin. Jean grew up in Grand Forks, ND, attended school in Grand Forks at Central High, then University of North Dakota, where she met her husband to be Douglas Norris. After a lengthy courtship, they were married May 29, 1954, then moved to Winnipeg where Jean nursed at Concordia Hospital while Douglas became the Director of Microbiology at St. Boniface Hospital. As a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she exhibited the lasting love that all were bathed in. She devoted most of her life in teaching adults and children of the greatest love of all from Jesus Christ. It was her joy to share this with others. After 50 years of marriage, she had a major stroke and was confined to a personal care home, Vista Park Lodge for nearly five years. Through the active care provided by so many people, Jean had angels looking after her that were so special, Cindy, Wendy, Lorna and so many others. When the time came for Jean to be with her Lord, it was with great joy to sing his praises. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 12, 2010 at Faith Lutheran Church, 1311 Dakota Street. Flowers are gratefully declined. If donations desired - please assign to Faith Lutheran Church, 1311 Dakota Street, Winnipeg, MB R2M 1Z4. Attn: Memorial Fund - Christian Education. GLEN LAWN FUNERAL HOME 982-7550
