DAVIES, Norma Frances

Norma Frances Davies (nee Wilson) of St. Andrews and Ottawa, was the eighth child born to Norman and the Honourable Cairine Wilson. With her adored husband Jim, Norma raised four children: Janet, Caroline, Donald and Kenneth. Her fierce intelligence was evident in lively discussions where Norma often advocated a principled and Liberal perspective. Norma could shred puzzles, devour books, and breeze through board games. Her membership in various bridge clubs was a source of pride. The eight grandchildren – Robyn, Christopher, Tim, Heather, Tess, Macx, Nicola and Michael – soon learned that while Gran never forgot anything, she could also be counted on to provide levelheaded advice on life. Norma was a cheerleader for the sporting endeavours of her children and grandchildren. She also mastered her own pursuits, including sailing each summer in blustery winds of Passamaquoddy Bay, as well as horseback riding, golfing, kayaking, skiing, and curling. During the winters in Ottawa, much to the delight of Tim and Chris, Norma was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic supporter of the Ottawa Senators. Norma enjoyed the company of people especially those related by marriage to her family: Rod, Mike, Bonnie Lou, Kathy, Jenny and Terry. She also had a special place in her heart for the next generation: Ivor and his sister Bryn. Her final words were: “I’ll miss you”. We will all miss you too. A memorial for Norma will be scheduled at Clibrig next summer. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Passamaquoddy Lodge << http://www.passamaquoddylodge.ca >>.
