Norma Louise (Stone) Geivett

Norma Geivett, 86, Mission, Kansas passed away at her home on Sunday, October 6, 2013.  She was born February 19, 1927 to Bill and Areta Stone in rural Golden City, Missouri.  She attended grade school at West Point and then graduated Valedictorian from Golden City High School.  Later she received a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University of Kansas.  She was a nursing instructor at Trinity Lutheran Hospital where her passion for quality nursing care was passed on to countless nursing students.

Norma was a devoted and dedicated wife and daughter.  She enjoyed working with flowers, embroidery, quilting and sewing.  She lived most of her adult life in Mission, Kansas and developed many close friendships with people of all ages.  Anyone who knew Norma became an instant friend as her heart knew no boundaries. She continued to be a teacher to her family and friends always guiding with love, trust and compassion.

Norma is survived by her husband of 62 years, Paul.  She is also survived by three brothers, Bud, Riverside, CA, Carl, Oxford AL and Lloyd, San Bernardino, CA, one sister, Faye Horn of Lenexa, KS and many nieces and nephews.  Special thanks to Gretchen and Ardie Davis and family for their thoughtful and generous acts.  And special thanks to my special friend, caretaker and adopted daughter, Pam Wilson.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the KC Humane Society in Norma’s name.

    With great saddness I read the obituary of Norma in the morning paper. Sorry the past years I’ve missed Norma’s friendship, but family news has always been shared with her brother Carl. We all have the common fact of attending our favorite rural school of West Point. Our adult years kept us apart b ut those childhood memories will linger for ever. On behalf of my Sisters, Mary, Erma and Martha, I wish to express our heartfelt sympathy and God Bless the Stone and Geivett Families.
