In memory of
Norma Mae Gage
Norma Mae Gage Lansing Our beloved Mother, Norma Mae Gage, completed her earthly journey on January 8, 2017. She was born on August 15, 1924, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her parents were Lewis and Sarah Larson. She was also lovingly raised by her grandmother, Ida Mae Routsau. Our Mom and Dad (Bob) met in high school and married on Jan 5, 1944, while Dad was on leave from the Army Air Force. They were united until his death in 2007. Theirs was a lifelong love story, and she continued missing him every day they were apart. Norma is survived by her children, Tom (Barb) Gage, Becki (Marc) Beattie, Sally (Hugh) Sizemore and Terri (Wilson) Gravenor, sister in-law, Delores Hill and brother in-law and sister in-law, Marvin and Ruth Gage. Norma also was blessed with 9 awesome grandchildren, and 11 loving great-grandchildren as well as several dear nieces and nephews. Anyone who knew our Mom would say how beautiful, friendly and kind she was. Her children were everything to her. Having no siblings, we became more than just her kids. We honestly were the center of her world and she was happiest when we were all together. We love you and admire you, Mom. We will continue to be inspired by your courage, strength and faith. You taught us how to love, and when God called you home, you taught us how to leave this world gracefully. Each of us will carry you in our hearts forever. We are thankful for the care you received from the staff at Prestige Pines, Sparrow Hospital, and most of all, from Hospice House of Mid-Michigan. There are too many angels to name, but we believe a more perfect staff and environment does not exist. Visitation is from 4:30 to 7:00 P.M. Wednesday, Jan. 11, in the Tiffany Funeral Home, 3232 W.
