Our sincerest condolences to the family and close friends of Norma. We worked with Norma over the last 20 years on updating and repairing our home. We were one of her post Harvey clients and it was a blessing to have her work with us. We will miss her!

Mariel Kipp, William M Kipp111 (Mars), of San Francisco, her nephew Eric J. Klein of Bonita Springs, Fl.
My family was good friends with Norma and we all loved her. She was great friends with my parents Bob and Maxine Boutwell and we all loved motorcycles and had great times just hanging out and laughing. She has been a friend up to her passing and was looking forward to seeing her in Houston. She is my last connection to my mother and always considered her like an aunt. I will miss her so much and wished I could have seen her or talked to her one last time. To all who loved her you have my sincere condolences and prayers
