STREIGHT

STREIGHT Dr. Norman Ernest Streight of Red Deer, Alberta passed away on December 8, 2006 in Red Deer, after a valiant endurance of the pain of brain cancer. He was 82 years old. Norman was born in Moosomin, Saskatchewan on March 12, 1924 to parents, Nathaniel and Mary. He served with the RCAF in WWII. After walking away unscathed from a serious plane crash he recommitted his life to God. He attended Miller Memorial Bible Institute. In 1952 he received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Toronto. He married Nurse Norah Muriel Sullivan on June 26, 1952. Engaged in two weeks, and married in two months, their love only grew stronger over the next fifty-four years. Together they used their gifts and training, first with the Grenfield Mission in St. Anthony, Newfoundland, then, in the then, Belgian Congo and afterwards in the United Arab Emirates. After returning to Canada in 1966 he practiced medicine in Alberta, principally in Milk River and Grande Cache before retiring to Red Deer. Norm was known for his love of God, his unfailing integrity and his compassion and meticulous attention to detail in the care of those who came to him. Whether he was performing surgery, studying Hebrew, tending his garden, painting a picture or cooking up a batch of Chokecherry Jelly over a campfire, everything was done with competence and creativity. Norman was predeceased by his sister, Evelyn, his brothers; Stanley and Harold and his sister-in-law, Eva Wall. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Norah of Red Deer, his son, Keith also of Red Deer, his daughter, Kathryn Peacock, her husband, Wesley and their children; Janet, Timothy and Scott of Edmonton, Alberta.
