It is sad to report that Norah Hutch Gair passed away in Kamloops, Nov. 14, 2006 from a fast growing cancer.
Norah was born Jan. 15, 1932 the eldest daughter of Bill and Annie Hutchinson (Hutch).
Hutches lived at Big Creek and Norah was born in the little hospital at Alexis Creek.
Norah was educated in a country school at Big Creek. She was married young to Tom Wilson and they had three daughters, Juanita, Bettyanne, and Cathy.
Cathy predeceased Norah in 1978.
Norah and her family have lived in Kamloops for over 35 years.
Her sisters, Eileen Beblow and Mary Robillard, also live in Kamloops.
Her sister Lucille lives in northern B.C. and brother Billy Hutch in Williams Lake.
Norah had many trials and heart aches in her life but never lost her indomitable spirit nor sense of humour.
She had a lovely laugh and almost to the end you could hear it ring out.
Norah’s husband, Simon Gair, predeceased her in 1999.
