My "step" Mom.
Daughter of Wilbur Earl Shanks & Hazel Lorina Miller.
Married 1) Julius Harry Riskey, three children, divorced.
Married 2) Walter Albert Sage, July 30, 1965 at Calvary Baptist Church, Bellflower, Los Angeles Co., CA. Inherited two daughters.
The best part of having Norma as a Step-Mom, was her loving my Daddy so fully and she complimented him completely. They sparkled as a couple and when they looked at each other you knew this love was from our Heavenly Father and His blessings were on the marriage.
Mom loved to antique shop. She made their home a picture perfect antique museum with all the functional fixtures included: Claw shower & tub, Pull handle toilet, etc. After a trek of antique hunting, her and daddy would restore their new treasures and either use it in their home or sell it at an Antique Show. She really had an eye for a bargain and knew what she wanted and what would sell.
Mom lived only 76 years, 3 months, 1 day, but was ready to meet the our Heavenly Lord at his calling. We know that she is awaiting our joining her on the streets of gold.
Many thanks to Jim Walls from Oregon for stone photo.
