Norma Ruth Whybrew, 87, of Port Huron, went to be with our Lord and loved ones on Sunday, October 2, 2016.

She enjoyed golfing, bowling, dancing and shopping but most of all she loved spending time with her family. She hosted many holiday dinners and parties, with Christmas being her favorite.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Bud Whybrew, her brother, Gerald O'Rourke and stepdaughter, Barbara Whybrew.
