DUFFY, Norma Lillian - (83) Passed away peacefully on August 9th 2018, following her loving husband into eternal bliss after 5 months of being separated by the strings of fate. Predeceased by her parents William Francis and Norma Compton and her brother Gordon William Compton; she is survived by her many nieces and nephews, her sister Joan Frances Pond as well as her sister in law Marilyn Compton. A loving mother, she leaves behind Sean Duffy, and his wife Teresa Duffy. Grandmother to Krystal Duffy, and Katherine Duffy (Bouchard). Great Grandmother to six-year-old Andraia, and five-year-old William. She will be greatly missed as her and her husband had become almost a daily part of their lives. A graduate of The School of Nursing: Toronto General Hospital 1956, Norma was praised for her people skills, and her ability to throw herself heart and soul into everything she did. Be it working on a patient or making a loving home for the man who stole her heart every day for over 50 years. Being a nurse for so many years of her life, she hated asking for help even when needed knowing how swamped those who work in our care system can get. In the last few months of her life Norma was able to do something so many of us only dream about, and hope for. She made her peace with those around her, allowing her passing to have a sense of calm finality few of us ever get to experience even in life. She will be missed but her family takes solace in her release from a body that contained only half a heart and soul, she truly had something that is so hard to find. True Love, and a broken heart can only beat so long missing its other half. May memories of her bring smiles, as she and Don are remembered as one. Cremation has taken place.
