Norah May Harrison (Husband)

September 9, 1929 – October 20, 2013

Norah was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and moved to Armstrong, B.C. at an early age, where she grew up on a farm and finished her schooling.

Norah lived in Smithers from 1960 until 1996 where she and her husband, Orald, raised seven children. She worked at various places around Smithers including, the Royal Bank, the Tyee Restaurant, Smithers Garage and Loomis. Norah had tremendous cooking skills and created the 4th Street Deli in Telkwa in 1982, treating the valley to her special cinnamon coffee, cheesecakes and many other delicious meals.

Norah moved to Powell River in 1996 where she enjoyed concerts, cards with the seniors and gardening.

In 2012 Norah moved to Peachland to live with her son, Blaine and family in a lovely home on the hill overlooking Okanagan Lake. She joined a seniors centre in Peachland, and continued her love of gardening.

Norah brought passion and enthusiasm to everything she did, whether it was business, travel, gardening or time spent with her family and friends.

Norah passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Peachland after a day of gardening and visiting with friends.

Norah is survived by all her children, May, Clifford (Terry), Bryan (Mary), Richard (Susan), Blaine (Terri), Kevin and Kathy, 15 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Norah’s life was held in Peachland on November 9, 2013.
