Norma Jean Papso (Hunden)

March 12. 1942-Jan. 29, 2012

It’s with great sadness that we share the untimely passing of Norma Jean Papso (nee Hunden). Norma was 69 with an upcoming birthday on March 12th.

In her younger years Norma Jean was one of the Pink Ladies who loved to drive stock cars at the Saratoga Speedway, she loved to sing on the radio, and was proud to hold the highest ten pin bowling score at the Courtenay Bowling alley for many years!

In her later years, Norma Jean lived in Sayward where she was employed by Canada Post as a mail courier. During this time she made many friends and never let the weather get her down.

Norma Jean lived her remaining years at Stories Beach. During this time she provided care for her long-time partner, kept very close to her grandson, remained active in the community and concentrated on spending time with her beloved friends.

Norma Jean will be missed by her long time partner Ted, her sister-in-law Sherry, daughter Robyn, Robyn’s partner Jonathan, grandson Zachariah, step children Laurie, Robert, and Valerie, Ted’s extended family as well as many friends.

Norma was predeceased by her loving son Michael Dale Papso who passed away January 28th 1991.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Senior’s Centre at 1426 Ironwood Road Campbell River on Friday February 3rd at 3pm.
