    Nora’s friendly spirit and love of family was extraordinary. Those whose lives she touched received a true gift.

    The family is in my heart and thoughts during this difficult time.

    Wes, Sean & Tim – I am at a lost for words to express my deep sympathy. We (the Campbell girls) loved Nora so much while we were all growing up and I was honored to be her “big sister” for a little while. She had such a beautiful spirit. She will be missed by so many.

    I had the honor of working with Nora for about 2 years at the RIT student health center. Her sense of humor and enthusiasm for life combined with her awesome nursing skills made her an amazing person to work with. My sympathies to her family.

    Wes, Sean and Tim – I simply cannot express how very sorry I am. Nora was such a sweet person and I have so many great memories of growing up with her. The mayhem we got into at Grandma Toners house would make you laugh! My thoughts and prayers are with you alll.

    Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. During times like this it can be hard for friends and family to find the right thing to say. Thankfully, we can echo the comforting words found in the Bible. At Revelation 21:4 it tells us that the God of all comfort will soon do away with all suffering, sickness, tears, and death. Until then, may your loving memories of Nora bring you solace during this difficult time. Your family has my sincerest condolences.

    I slipped into grief on finding this obit for Nora
    My deepest condolence with her family.

    Sweet remembrances of you,
    The kindest of old souls,
    The sparkling blue eyed girl and laughing spirit
    Who now forever is,
    Our blessed angel Nora!
