NORMA JEAN THOMSON (published on August 24, 2009)

NORMA JEAN THOMSON (nee KNIGHT) Surrounded by the love of her family Norma Thomson passed away on August 21, 2009 at Riverpark Gardens. Mom was born on February 20, 1922 in Oakner, MB to Harry and Mary Knight, moving to Winnipeg at the age of 21. She met and married Graham on November 28, 1942. She worked at the Misericordia General Hospital in the Admitting Department until her retirement at 65. Norma was an avid curler and golfer, and enjoyed many a game with friends at the Pembina Curling Club, and Crescent Drive, Wildwood and Windsor Park Golf Clubs. Mom was predeceased by her husband Graham; sisters, Edythe Womack and Beatrice Hunter; brother Charles Knight; brothers-in-law, Don McLenahan, Jim Womack and sister-in-law Nora Knight. Mom is survived by her children, Terry (Lorraine), Jan (Mike Weedon), Wayne (Agnes), Patti (Kelli Abrahamson), Lori (Joe Donato) and Dean (Rosanna); as well as grandchildren, Jill (Don), Delanie (Dan), Leanne (Jeff), Karen (Robin), Julia, Lindsay, Kyle, Alison, Colin, Jocelyn, Michelle, Eric, Dylan and Tiana, and five great-grandchildren. Mom was a very giving person and loved her family very much and was always very proud of them. Her sense of humour was remarkable and lives on in her children and grandchildren. The family wishes to acknowledge the wonderful caring staff at Riverpark Gardens who were so supportive of Mom and us during her entire stay. We could not have asked for a better home for her; many laughs were shared. A service will be held at Thomson in the Park on August 26, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Mom's name to the Riverpark Gardens at 735 St. Anne's Road, Winnipeg, R2N 0C4.
