  1. Norma was a very beautiful Lady inside & out. Her love for the Lord was always present.
    I’ve known her for 26 years. When my husband went to be with Jesus, she comforted me.
    This precious Lady is walking the streets of gold with our Lord.
    God bless her family, may God give them Grace & Peace as only He can give. Gwen Smith

  2. Dearest Wana, Terri and Lisa, and all grandchildren and great grandchildren. I love each of you dearly and you are all in my prayers. I loved your sweet mother and grandhildren very much. She was always a very special sister-in-Christ to Marvin and me. Remembering sweet memories of days past with her in so many times together. We will miss her but are happy to know she is now with her sweet husband, Farron who was also a special brother-in-Christ. I am just sorry that we could not all celebrate Norma’s life together with a special fellowship and meal together. You are all in my heart and thoughts and I just pray for your strength, health and faith in our Lord will be strong as you are able to gather as a family to remember her life together. My love, always, Fern

  3. Norma will always have a special place in my heart. She treated me like family and I was thankful for that. I was privileged to honor her and Farron at our wedding and to have her seated right before our parents and grandparents as my honored guests. She was there at the hospital with my in laws when Bailee was born and waited on us to be released from the hospital 2 days later at 10:30 at night to help us get home and settled in with our first born. I asked her what she would like my kids to call her and she replied, “Nana Norma”. She was a big help and comfort when my girls were little and they loved her too! Life got busy and we didn’t see her as much as we would’ve liked but it was always fun to go to her house for trick or treating and to get to visit for a bit. I’m glad that I was able to visit with her a few weeks ago. Such a sweet, sweet lady. I’m so thankful that God put her in my life when He did in 1986. I’m sorry that I won’t be able to be there in person because of the circumstances but I would love to be there with you all to honor her. I will cherish the memories I have of her forever. I loved Norma and Farron very much! Your family will stay in my prayers during this time.

  4. Norma was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. Always had that sweet smile on her face. What a wonderful Christian woman with such a gentle, kind spirit.

  5. I knew Norma on a limited basis, usually a few words after a worship service, but every interaction with her left me always wanting to spend more time with her. She was a great person to converse with and one of sweetie people I have ever met. She has left a great legacy behind with incredible family members. I will always remember Norma!

  6. A wonderful service. Suzanne and I were blessed through our friendship and association with the Lockwood’s at the Westwood Church of Christ. What a wonderful family. Thank you.

  7. Norma was one of the most gracious Christian ladies we have ever known.Her being at church always encouraged us .She was much loved and will be very much missed.

  8. To my young friend, I shall treasure all the talks and fun we had. I know now you are happy with Farron— you know we will all be okay. I love you forever– Ruby Dilworth

  9. Wana, Lisa, and Terry,

    Kathy just found your moms obituary in the Sunday paper last night and read it to me. Though we were 2nd or 3rd or whatever cousins, I’ve always loved your family. You lived 3 blocks from us when I was in high school and the only time we saw you was at the family reunion. Your mom always seemed to treat me special, but I think that was the way she treated everyone. I think her life can be seen in each one of you. I’m sad that she is gone but even more that I didn’t stay closer to her. May God continue to bless your families.
