Norma Leslie Myers
1931 - 2021
With last kisses and flowing tears, Lorna and Linda said good-bye to their beloved Mother, Norma Leslie Myers, on November 11, 2021 . Memories of her will be cherished by her daughters, Lorna Fuoco (Reg) and Linda Seller (David); grandchildren David Fuoco (Serena), Lisa Brunt (Davis), Kristin Seller (Eric) and Erin Hegg (Paul); and great-grandchildren Avani and Anaya Fuoco, Jackson and Carter Brunt, and Livia and Jack Hegg.

Those who knew Mom will remember her for her passion for duplicate bridge that culminated in a Bronze Life Master; her love of books and reading; her joy in being outside in her garden or at her cabin on Shuswap; and her quest for the next adventure. If it was happening, she was there. She was independent, capable and determined. For Mom, where there was a will, there was a way. Her kind-heartedness and curiosity shone through everything she did. She loved life and would have lived forever given the option.

Mom never gave up on anything or anyone. We knew this was true when, at a very young age, we witnessed her successfully resuscitate our belly-up goldfish. Regardless of our accomplishments or lack of them, she loved us unconditionally and supported us without judgement. When asked by others how we knew we were loved, our answer was simple, "There was never any reason to doubt. We just knew."

One of the highlights of Mom's days was a visit from her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She adored them and they loved her back. This poem was written by the grandchildren for their Grandma.

To Our Grandma

Her peaches are sweet,
Her dancing is neat.
She owns lots of shoes
but she prefers bare feet.

She can chop up a tree,
Read a book in a flash.
She can swim like a fish
and then make you laugh.

If you wash her car,
She'll wash yours right back.
If you get out of line
she'll keep you on track.

She gives big strong hugs
and she's fearless and bold.
There's no doubt her heart
is made purely of gold.

The best thing about her
is her hugs and her smile,
and if you happen to cry
she'll cry with you a while.

We couldn't keep up to her
even if we tried.
We love her so dearly.
It can't be denied.

Hugs and kisses always

Thank you to Mom's extended family, including relatives in other parts of Canada, the USA and Italy, for their love and support, and to her friends for their kindness and caring especially during this past year.

Our memories and the example Mom set for each of us to live life with curiosity, confidence, and unconditional love will be held close to our hearts.

A celebration of Mom's life will be held at a later date.

Dear Linda and Lorna and Families, Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. Your Mom was a special person and I have many fond memories of her. The times I did see her in Kamloops, she was always the kind, caring person I knew from my childhood. Rest assured she is always with you in your heart.
