Living Waters Honors Norma Rossignol!
Living Waters would like to take the time to honor a very special woman for us. Chuck's mother, Norma Rossignol, passed away this week. Chuck says it was a notably holy and joyous passing; that's not surprising because she lived her whole life the same way, with deepest faith and joy. She was a surrogate mother to Living Waters. I remember a bunch of us kids, including Mike , Mark, Dave, Jimmy & Danny going up to the the farmhouse in Waterville, and spending hours praying and singing, and writing songs, with her warm heart enveloping all of us. She & her family blessed all of us so much. She was VERY involved in music & service & worship at her parish and elsewhere. I was not surprised when she was named Maine Mother of the Year in 1990. Without people like her and Nancy McBride and so many others, Living Waters would not be what it has been and is. How could hers have NOT been a happy death? Her faith, hope and charity were undeniable, and they bore unmistakable fruit, here and beyond. We love you, Norma Faith (Hubert) Rossignol! Requiscat in pace!
