Norma Gardner Death, Obituary – It is with a heavy heart that we convey the somber news of the passing of one of our esteemed founding members, Norma Gardner. Her departure leaves a profound void in our club’s history and our hearts.
As a founding member of the original franchise, Norma dedicated over 30 years of her life in service to the club. She was the embodiment of dedication and selflessness, tirelessly contributing in any way she could. From handling ticket desk sales to managing registrations, Norma was the backbone of our operations.
Norma’s commitment extended far beyond the administrative realm. She was a passionate supporter of the club, rarely missing a game, whether it was at home or away. Her son, the legendary Dave Gardner, is a testament to the sporting excellence that runs in their family.
For those who had the privilege of attending the former Jets camps, Norma was a familiar face and a comforting presence. She served as the camp’s top administrator, welcoming everyone on day one and offering a friendly ear throughout the week. Her kindness and warmth left an indelible mark on all who crossed her path.
Norma’s contribution to the club’s success is immeasurable. No words can adequately convey our gratitude for her unwavering dedication and tireless efforts. We owe her a debt of gratitude that can never be fully repaid.
In honor of Norma Gardner’s memory, we will hold a minute’s applause at this Saturday’s game against Bristol. It is a small token of our appreciation for her enduring legacy within our club.
Norma Gardner’s legacy will forever be etched in our hearts and the annals of our club’s history. Her spirit will continue to inspire us, and she will always hold a special place in our hearts. Rest in peace, dear Norma Gardner. You will be deeply missed.
