Mrs. Norma Mae GrantIt is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce that our beloved mother and grandmother, Norma Mae Grant, passed peacefully on November 7th at Baycrest. Norma is survived by her children, Shawn (Dianne), Shelly-Anne (Zakir) and four loving grandchildren, Emmanuelle, Jacob, Jordan and Kaitlan. She will be dearly missed by all her nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends across Canada, the US, and Jamaica. Born in May Pen, Jamaica, Norma travelled to Scotland to attend Nursing school, and ultimately moved to Canada in 1977 to ensure her children had every opportunity available to them. After a long and rewarding career in nursing – which included time at CAMH, Norma retired as a Public Health Nurse in the City of Toronto. Norma loved to laugh, and enjoyed spending time with friends and family; she enjoyed a night out at the theatre, baking treats for her family, and tending to her beloved garden – a true joy in her life. ‘Norms’ (as her family called her) always had an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, advice to offer, a cup of tea, and a welcoming smile to anyone who visited. Family and friends will be received at a memorial service on Thursday November 14th, at 10:30 a.m. at Prince of Peace Catholic Church (265 Alton Towers Circle); a celebration of life will take place later in the afternoon at The Markham Museum (9350 Markham Road). family and friends are welcome to drop by anytime between 5 - 9 p.m. To honour Norma’s life, please consider planting a tree or a flower, tending to your garden, or taking time to enjoy your family as Norma would have. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations in Norma’s honour may also be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
