Norma Millie (nee Bradford) Hill

Years ago, between the seas,

there was born a child of needs.

Her mother left, her father quit,

uncertain futures on mercy’s steps.

Take this child, her fears quell,

raise this child and love her well.

When she asks, let them tell,

there were those who loved her well.


Norma Hill passed quickly after a valiant battle resisting death on February 17, 2005 at the Eden Care Home in Chilliwack at the age of 88 years.

She was born in York Country, Ontario on January 24, 1917 to Wm. Bradford and M. Maynard.

Norma is survived by her loving daughter Norma Watt and her husband John in Yarrow, BC, and loving sister Laura (Worsley) Colbert of Peterborough, Ontario.

She was predeceased by her husband Arthur, and the caring family of George and Laura Worsley or Toronto,.

Norma will always be remembered in the communities of Toronto, Ottawa, Ladysmith, Burnaby, White Rock and the Eden Care Home as a a spunky little lady of quick wit and high energy.

She met life’s challenges head on.

A Celebration of her life was held at Yarrow Community Hall on Saturday, February 26th, 2005 between 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
