DOLEN, Norma Jean

Dolen, Norma Jean

April 12, 1926 – July 5, 2016

Once in a while God gives us a gift, a miracle to remind us of his love, a gift that can touch many, with just a simple smile, or a wave goodbye from a window as your passing by. She was a reminder to stay true, to be as joyful, and as innocent as a child. To open up your home, and be as loving to friends as to a stranger walking by, To be strong, and be a pillar in your community, your family and in your life. To always give without reverence, and to do on to others as they do on to you. And mostly to live your life with a loving and kindest of heart, this gift was giving in the most dearest and graceful soul of Norma Jean Dolen. Norma went home to be with the lord at the age of 90 years on July the 5th 2016.
