  • My condolences to Norm, boys and their families on your loss. I got to know Vienna while my children attended B E Glavin School and while I was a School Trustee in the River East School Division. Vienna was a very caring individual and it was always nice to meet and chat either in school, shopping or after she retired when we ran into each other out and about. Pleasant memories that you hold dear will sustain you during these most difficult times. Rest in peace, Vienna. - Posted by: Vicki Lazaruk (Parent BEG, Friend) on: Aug 27, 2022

  • My deepest sympathies to Norm and the Black Family. Vienna was an amazing, quiet, generous and helpful friend, fellow-volunteer and person I was honoured to know. My heart goes out to Norm on the loss of a lovely woman. I remember when she was excited to go to the city of Vienna and see what her name-sake was like. I especially enjoyed hearing about that trip as my son was living in the city. The world has lost a lovely person. She will be missed by many who knew her.
