https://missourifbla.org/2023/01/31/2pqrk81h Synopsis https://dieseldatabase.com/izn6647y Norma grew up on an isolated South Canterbury farm. Her father, a struggling World War I veteran, raised 10 children on his own. She recalls wearing underpants sewn from soft cotton flour bags and sleeping under potato sacks for warmth in bitterly cold winters. Freezing nights, like the one when her sister went missing.

https://daccordshirts.com/oeqe9614 Norma’s nursing career reveals how times have changed in the profession and in the care and treatment of patients. She recounts moving stories of kindness and compassion, along with a good dose of humour, such as the morning she handed her elderly patients the wrong dentures! Norma does not flinch from shrewd perceptions when reflecting on bringing up her own children and helping husband Gus run his successful Remuera hair salon, at one time the largest salon in Australasia.
