历史

Norma Marion Alloway (nee Pike) was a Christian woman who communicated her love for the Lord Jesus Christ through her writings, her speaking, and through the example of her life. Norma was an only child, born on March 25, 1922 and raised in Toronto. She graduated from the University of Toronto in 1944 with a degree in English. In 1945, Norma married Donald Miller and they had five children.

Norma had an active writing career as an author and poet. In addition to writing three books, she wrote articles for numerous magazines and newspapers. In much of her writing Norma shared informal anecdotes which related a personal faith to everyday living. She was also an international traveler and speaker, and was widely known for sharing the message of the Creator in her Seashell presentations. Conchology was a lifelong hobby and her shell collection reflected the breadth of other world class collections.

She served actively in a wide variety of ministries, as a member of several Christian boards, participating in her local church, opening her home to children's Bible Clubs, youth groups, neighbourhood Bible studies, and visiting missionaries. The Association for Christian Libraries was formed from an event of Christian librarians hosted by Norma in her summer Muskoka home, and the association’s first monthly meeting was held in the same place.

In 1973, Norma and Miller Alloway established the Maranatha Foundation, a private Christian foundation that raises funds for various Christian ministries.

Norma was a board member of the United Nations Association working primarily in the area of Human Rights. She reminded senior politicians and diplomats of their responsibility to preserve the spiritual principles on which their nations had been founded.

Norma passed away in 1988.
