Norah Marian Kidd

April 27, 1918 – May 30, 2010

We regret to announce the death of Norah Marian Kidd at Hospice House in Vernon on May 30, 2010 at the age of 92 years.

Norah was born into the pioneer family of Ivan and Alfaretta Crozier and married Robert L. Kidd in Vernon in 1946. They then moved to the Kootenay’s in 1947 for ten years and then for 20 years followed a career as an accountant in the heavy construction field – a busy, interesting and educational time in many North American locations where Robert worked as Safety Engineer on the same projects. When his health failed in 1979, they returned to Vernon.

Norah was predeceased by her loving husband Robert in 1987; sister Kay Duddle and her husband Jim; brother Chuck Crozier and his wife Verna and a special cousin. She is survived by two stepsons; Harry (Verna) Kidd and their two sons, Jeff and Terry, and four grandchildren; C. J. (Maureen) Kidd, and their four children, grandchildren and great grandchildren; a nephew, Jim Duddle (Barbara) and their four children, Justin, Chelan, Dan, and Kayla; a very special niece, Beverley (Duddle) Stayer (Bernie) whom Norah helped care for when Kay Duddle was ill; the Stayer’s three children, Jennifer (Donald) MacLachlan and their children Daniel and Ian, Tyler Stayer and Douglas (Amber) Stayer. She is also survived by two beloved nieces and their families – Lorie-Ann (Crozier) Quechuck (Lawrence) and their children, Wade and Sara-Jane; and Susan (Crozier) Caldwell (Jim).

The family would like to give their sincere thanks to Dr. Smart. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Norah may be made to the North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3506 – 27 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4.

At Norah’s request, there will be no service held. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155. Condolences may be offered at

When I come to the end of the road,

And the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom filled room,

Why cry for a soul set free.

For this is a journey we all must take,

And each must go alone.

It’s all a part of the Master’s plan.

A step in the road – to Home.
