Esther Norman passed away peacefully on April 24, 2021.
She will be remembered and sadly missed by her loving daughter Susan (Tom) Klassen, as well as by her many dear friends whom she loved as family. She is survived by her brother Siegfried Schilde.
Esther was predeceased by her husband Edward Walter Norman in 1968 and by Waldemar Krzanowski in 1996.
Esther was born in Vernon, BC and moved to the Lower Mainland with her Husband Edward. She lived in Squamish, BC and worked as the Head of Housekeeping at the Squamish General Hospital. She and Walter moved to the Okanagan and then to Oliver when they retired in 1991. For most of the past 15 years, Esther has been living on an acreage in Oliver with her brother Siegfried.
She loved to be outside, and she loved to garden. She loved to knit, crochet, and bake. She did all of these things even when she became visually impaired. We all benefited from her beautiful and tasty creations that were made for us with love.
Esther's family would like to send special thanks to the staff of McKinney Place in Oliver, BC for the care and compassion and the sense of family that they provided for her, especially during these trying times.
A Celebration of Life will be held when we are able to gather again.
Memorial tributes can be made to a charity or an animal rescue of your choice.
