William and family. It is with deep sympathy that we pray for your family as you deal with this profound loss. We have fond memories of being married in your backyard overlooking the water. Norma was my "best woman" and William was the "best man". You are part of a great family and I know you will support each other during this difficult time

As a first grader at White Stone Elementary in 1956, I always remembered our one "Senior" -- Norma Jean Dryden. Her brother, Jimmy, was in my class which made it even more special. As a first grader, I was so amazed at this very special girl who was our only Graduate! I still have our 1956 Pendulum with the Class Will she wrote and her comments to "Whom It May Concern." I have often told the story over the years of Norma Jean. Though I have not seen her for many, many years, I see from the obituary that she grew up to be an beautiful and loving wife, mother, grandmother and community member. My deepest sympathy and love to the entire family.
