Norma Agnes Litt

September 1, 1950 – May 12, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness we must announce that, Norma Agnes Litt, passed away at the Hospice in the Views at St Joseph’s Hospital, Comox, B.C., in the early hours of Thursday, May 12th 2022. Norma had been suffering from terminal lung cancer since it was first detected in November of 2020. She fought hard, was as tough as nails and she kept her dignity through radiation, chemo, and immunotherapy. There were many doctors and nurses that were involved in her lengthy battle. The nurses and care-aides’ attention she received at the Hospice was stellar and they made the best of Norma’s last few weeks and days. There are far too many health care workers to mention, but a special nod to her family Dr. Potter-Cogan, for his kindness and wisdom, and to her ‘angel’ Nurse David and care-aide Carolynn.
Norma, as most who knew her will testify, was a one of a kind, a no bullshit, no nonsense, straight to the point, sweetheart of some great form. She could outwork any man and often did. But most of all she was always looking at things to do and gift for others. She was a master bingo player and an exacting tosser of horseshoes, jokes and insults -she had the energy of two and still the mind for needlepoint. But mostly, she was always looking at things to do and gift for others.
Born, Sept 1, 1950, in Hubbard, and raised in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Norma’s family (nee Miller) were instrumental in the building of the famous schooner the ‘Bluenose’. Norma’s quest out west was marked by a term as a longshoreman and safety supervisor in Ocean Falls. In Courtenay she worked at Farquharson Farms and performed so well she was even made Jean and Jack’s personal gardener at their home. She often volunteered at the Courtenay Elks Lodge, serving dinners and decorating for many Christmas and Halloweeen celebrations. She spent her later years of work dipping her fingers in the icing at Hot Chocolates, and was a regular at the Views Thrift Store.
Norma is survived by her partner, Al, and her son Leonard (Kelly). There will be no service as Norma wished for ‘no fuss over me’. Little could she know.
She whispered for me ‘to save her’
I saw the truth, and had no answer
but I was her Superman..
finally I said, “We are all just bozos on this bus”
and the Angel said, “That was a perfect answer”
Donations may be made to any SPCA and/or the MARS center in Merville, B.C.
