Know that we are praying for all of you. Waneta was such a sweet person.
She was so caring when I watched her grandsons. She was such a comfort
to me when my mom passed away and again when my husband was in his
car accident. She always knew just what to say. I'll miss her greatly.

Dick, Katrina & Korwin, Logan &Tanner,
Some angel was on my shoulder when she told me to look up Waneta last
July, after not seeing her for 47 years! I wish we would have had more time to
discuss our old Business School days and dreams of what would become
the next 47 years.  She always dreamed of being happily married to Dick and
having two kids! She was right on target with that -- despite Dick liking olives!
She was taken too soon...I'll miss not knowing she is only a phone call away.

Waneta was a very special person who I asked for many times for her advice
when I started driving a school bus and her wisdom was well received and
her stories I will miss, prayers the family go rest high on that mountain!

I remember all the Norris reunions we attended over the years. She was
always a favorite of her Uncle Milburn and Aunt Marilynn Norris and was a
favorite cousin to Marcia Norris Clements. Dick, Katrina, and Korwin you
have my deepest sympathy. She had a strong faith in God.  Remember faith,
family and friends are so important during these times. You are all in my
prayers.
