Louise Scott Norman (nee Douglas) passed away on July 24 at 91 years old to spend eternity in heaven. She was born on May 14,1928 in Sudbury, to Ivan and Helen Douglas and raised in Capreol, ON. Louise moved to Toronto in 1946 to attend business school, and after graduation she worked in Toronto, Montreal, Northern, Quebec, Calgary, Lake Louise and Emerald Lake, where she met her husband Lew Norman. After Lew's career took them to Field, BC, Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto (Mississauga) they retired 30 years ago to Penticton. She taught kindergarten for many years and was also a volunteer peer counselor and in her later years she took up painting.
She will be remembered fondly and sadly missed forever by her loving husband of 64 years Lew, her children Dave (Susan) of North Vancouver, Sue of Penticton, grandsons Ben + Eric and many nieces & nephews. She was predeceased by her parents and sisters Marge, Isabel and Ruth. Louise enjoyed a long and happy life. Her many pleasures included all types of music, piano playing, children and especially Siamese cats! Her love of travel took her mostly to England and Europe but her most memorable trip was to Israel and the Holy land. She was a person of strong & unwavering faith, which served her well in her final months. She touched the lives of all who knew her and was well loved for her generous and kind spirit, thoughtfulness and humour.
