Norma Lee was a very avid reader and could hold a conversation on any subject. Her doctors called her Dr. Campbell. She always had a word of advice for any listening soul and if you went to her for advice, you had better be prepared for an honest answer. When you visited her, her presence made you feel welcome; she was a great inspiration to young people and always thought about others more than herself even during her own illness. Norma Lee was also a member of the Light of Crisfield Temple #86 for a number of years.
