Norma Brower In Memoriam

It is with heavy hearts that the Board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Danville Area announces the passing of our beloved executive board member, Norma Jean Brower. Norma faithfully served our organization for six years.

Norma was born into a very closely knit family in Atlantic City, NJ. She wove her children and grandchildren close to her in the very same way. On a larger scale, Norma Brower through her affiliations wove the larger Danville community and state of Virginia into a closely knit relationship. In this day and time, that kind of leadership is rare.

Please keep her family and friends in your prayers. Norma carried the banner of "the power and promise" of youth, and she leaves us with the legacy.
