2 Comments on “Norma Arminta Bass”

  1. I loved Ms. Nor.a very much! When I was at Safeplace Ms.Norma created me to be the the pen snob I am now!! Anytime she found a new pen she was sure to share one with me. Anything I everneeded or mentioned she would somehow always come up with it! She will be missed by me and so many.

  2. We loved Norma for many years. She was a special lady to many! Norma will be missed! Love to the family!
