She is survived by her children, Dr. Kathy, Allan and Marie, and Joanne. She was Grammie to Margaret, Gillian, Alexander, and Colin. She was predeceased by her husband of almost 58 years, George Alexander.

Norma was the last surviving member of her immediate family. Besides her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her sister, Kathleen Hilda Beatson.
The family would like to thank all the great people at the nursing home for the wonderful care that Mom received in her last months. Everyone was so kind and caring both to Mom and her family.
