November 5, 1942 to June 16, 2015
Norma Jean Fabbi passed away peacefully at the age of 72 on Tuesday, June 16, 2015 with her loving family around her, after a courageous battle with cancer. Norma was born in Ottawa and since then she has lived in Ralston, Calgary, Kitimat and Prince Rupert for the last 42 years. She worked as a meat-wrapper at Overwaitea, Super-Valu and Safeway for 24 years. Norma was an energetic, fun-loving person with a quick wit and great laugh. She enjoyed cooking, crocheting, baking and spending time with her grandchildren.
Norma will be dearly missed by her many friends and family, including her loving husband of 54 years, Gordon; 4 children – Curtis (Val), Melanie (Terry), Todd (Debra) and Melissa; 7 grandchildren – Robyn, Justin, Tyler, Ryan, Alexandra, Nathan and Laila; brothers – Brian (Bev), Tommy, Dave; and sister Betty (Bob) and brother-in-law Robert Haddow. Norma was predeceased by her parents, Norman and Alice, as well as her sister Cathy.
The family would like to thank all those who provided support during these recent difficult times, including the helpful and kind home care nurses; Marg, Andrea, Wanda and Elida, oncology and nursing staff at Prince Rupert Regional hospital, Cancer Clinic nurses; Jen, Mikko and Joan, as well as Dr. Croft and Dr. Tse.
