|For Norma's family: I'm sorry for your loss and give my warmth, thoughts and prayers for you at this time. I'm sorry that I could not be at the service. Memories of how Norma's life touched mine and others that I knew are warm and good. I remember care and hospitality received as a child from Norma, especially one 'snow day'. I also remember many trips from MN through that little town in CO where my Mom and Aunt Ann and Norma all met me for a sweet time visiting over lunch. God bless you all.|

For Norma Conley... To Sherry, Alan & Bunny, Ronnie & Karen, and Earl & Shirley and your families --- We are so sorry to learn of your Mother's passing. It is so sad that she had to go through a long bout with Alzheimers. We know she is now at peace and is with her loved ones who have passed on before her. We have such warm memories of her, and we pray that you will be comforted by your cherished memories of her. May God's Spirit be with you at this time of grief.

|To the family of Norma Jean Millard Conley --- I have many, many fond memories of our wonderful neighbors, Bob, Vivian, Earl Ray and Norma Jean Millard. They were true lifetime friends. I loved going over to see them and Bill and Carrie in the evenings with my Dad, Glenn Higbee. Norma and I went to school at the Carlton School together. We would see each other in the stores from time to time and always had a good visit. Norma's smile would always light up a room. I will truly miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.|

Sherrie, Alan, Ron, and families, I'm so sorry to hear that your mom passed, but it is comforting to know that she is now in a better place. She is there and I'm sure she has already found Brenda and Butch and are laughing about the old times. Aunt Beannie, as she will always be to me, was always so much fun and will be missed. Please know that I will be with you tomorrow in spirit.
Love you, cousin Linda from Alaska
|Sherry, Alan and Ron - So sorry to hear about your mom, all my best to each of you and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.|
|Sherry, Alan & Ron: The way that I felt about your mom, words cannot express. How special it was that I grew up knowing "Beanie" because she was my mom's friend then eventually Norma Jean became my friend. All the years of fond memories when Morrows and Hoskins families would get together for their famous game night or sharing holidays. I sure hope that your Mom and my Mom are going to get together for a game of "Liver Pool Rummy" with Billie Jean. The world was definitely a better place knowing that Norma Jean will live forever in our hearts. Keep your memories close in your heart...Connie (Morrow) Cook|

The family of Norma Conley: we are so sad to hear of your Mom's passing. We knew she had not been very well for awhile, i guess we just have to believe that she is no longer suffering and in a better place, words that are easy to say but hard to grasp just now. We wont be able to attend the service but will be with you all in spirit. Your Mom was always so nice and friendly Sherry, Alan and Ronnie. Jim and I took a country swing dance class w/Norma and Earl I think maybe before they were married, anyway it was alot of fun and they really enjoyed themselves! Good memories!
Take care Jim and Lana Lococo
|Your mom was always such a nice woman. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.|
|Sherry, Alan and Ron: I am so sorry to hear you have lost your mother. She was a great lady. The first time I ever met her (back when we were in Jr. High, Sherry), she made me feel like one of your family. And her laugh -- it was contagious! She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Faye (Fritz) Austin|
