It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Norman Jefferson at the age of 96 years. Norman leaves behind his sons Garry (Rosalie), Marvin (Donna); Daughters Jean (Ken), Jane (Randy); 11 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Plus many, many nieces and newphews.

He is predeceased by his wife Margaret, mother, father, brother and 2 sisters, sons Jimmy and Bryan, and daughter-in law Sheila

Norman was born in Kennedy Saskatchewan where he grew up, married the love of his life, Margaret, had three sons. He moved to Athalmer in 1954.

Norman built their little house and moved the family into it in 1959. They lived in the same home until 2014 when he was placed in Ivy house. Norman loved to build and fix things and did so until 2005. At which time he spent his days with his faithful dog Jazz until her passing in the spring of 2014.

He will be missed by all that knew him for his gentle ways.

We wish to thank all the staff at Ivy House for their care and the nurses and Doctors for the care they gave to him.

Rest in peace, we will miss you.

A celebration of life will be held on
