Later in life Norma and her partner Edward Kiley, owned and operated Percell's Cove Marine. They ran a boat charter service and marina and enjoyed over 25 successful seasons on the water before Ed's untimely death in 2008.
A celebration of her life will happen in Purcell's Cove Social Club in Purcell's Cove on Sunday, June 10, 2018 at 4:00 pm. A private family funeral service will be held at a later date.
Our mother was the sparkle in the room, the wit in any conversation, and a wonderful person in all respects. A straight shooter, she told it like it is. You always knew where you stood with Norma. She loved her children and their kids very much. She also has a very warm spot in her heart for all friends at the Purcell's Cove Club, Especially "Patti".
Special thanks to 7th floor staff at the Halifax Infirmary, QEII; 5th floor staff at Abbie J. Lane Memorial Building, QEII and VON organization.
