    To all the family of our Dear Tantie Norma, you are in our hearts. We got to know your precious Mom through Brenda and technology. Our family was SO glad to have this because even though she was our Tantie, our Dad, Ira’s, baby sister, we never got to know her in person. Brenda has given us this precious gift and we will forever be grateful to Brenda for this. I wish we would have had time with her in person but I am so grateful we got to know her the way we did.

    Brenda, will forever be grateful to you. Tantie was part of our family that we got to know because of you, taking the time to message and send us videos and show her ours. My kids never got to know the Aunts and Uncle’s on the Deveau side because they were all gone except for your Mom, I am so grateful that did get to see her. A gift you gave my children.

    Rest easy Aunt Norma. I have fond memories of you during my childhood.You were always sweet and kind.You will be missed by so many.



  11. Beth Deveau on April 13, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Dear Brenda, Nancy, Janet, Kathleen, Diane, Ronald, David, Steven and all your families, I send to you my very deepest condolences, hugs, and much love. I first met your Mom and many of you during my summer Saugas visits with Aunt Veronica. During the past years, your Mom and I shared many letters and cards which i enjoyed tremendously. Brenda always made sure that we had many precious videos and pictures. We enjoyed many laughs and were able to keep in touch this way. Auntie would always end her videos by sending lots of kisses.

    My Dad always had a very special place in his heart for his youngest sister Norma. He was always so happy to welcome her kids when they could visit Nova Scotia. Physical distance, may have kept Auntie Norma and Dad apart in the past, but I find comfort in knowing they are now together, along with their other seven sibblings, their mother and father.

    My love, thoughts, and prayers are with you all during this difficult times. Many all the love that surrounds you give you strenght to face the days ahead. Please know that I loved your Mom dearly.



  12. Marc Accettullo and family on April 13, 2020 at 11:47 pm

She will be missed but please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Mommy/Grammy
    We love you and will miss you forever! Watch over us with your bright shining light – blowing us kisses from heaven – guiding us thru each day with good health. I will remember our long conversations about life several times a day…..and for your words of wisdom even up to our last 27min 27sec phone conversation a month before your passing. I said I love you and you said I love you! I want to wish you a very Happy New Year, Happy Valentine’s Day, Happy Birthday’s, Happy Easter, Happy Mother’s Day, Happy 4th Of July, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and many more holidays that you used to start wishing us months in advance. I will be sure to save the Sunday Funnies for the boys and think of Grammy! We will think of you when there’s a “torrential” rain storm and that you taught them that word as early as toddler stages. With every new pair of shoes that they buy we will remember you came with them for their 1st pair of walking shoes. Now when I see the boys in the backseat of my car, I will remember how you used to babysit them in the car while I ran errands. You had them laughing, you taught them everything and when I came back into the car all I saw was big big happy smiles from all of you. There’s so many memories of Mommy & Grammy. Thank you for all of them. Love Love Mommy – Love Love Grammy! Until we meet again may you heal, get the rest you need, celebrate the next part of your journey with your Mom, Dad & Siblings and all your family & friends who have passed. I’m sure you have lots to talk about.
    The boys will wear their watches & remember what fun TIMES they had with their Grammy! God Bless you and until we meet again – LOVE LOVE!!!
