Norva Landry accepts a framed Certificate of Recognition in honor of her service in the armed forces during WWII from her son Len Landry. Other family in attendance were Shannon Landry (granddaughter)

Another selfless achievement by a local Bentley lady has now been recognized.

On Family Day at the Bentley Museum, ninety-one-year-old Norva Landry was presented with a certificate of recognition signed by Prime Minster Stephen Harper and Minister of Veteran Affairs Erin O’Toole, along with a commemorative lapel pin in honor of her service in the armed forces.

Landry served with the RCAF from November 1943 to December 1946 and was an army wife while raising a growing family.

On hand for the presentation were family members including son Len Landry and wife Jean, daughter-in-law Lorna Landry, granddaughters Shannon Landry, Dani Landry, and Kristy Landry, grandson Brady Landry and fiancé Alyssa Batten, friend Cecile Carroll (Turnbull) as well as museum volunteers and visitors.

Landry is living in Lacombe, but her heart is still in Bentley where she lived growing up, returning to the area in 1968 after military life.

She was very involved in the community, captured local history in her artwork and photography, and was active with the local museum and with the school, reading and speaking and giving tours to the local children.

Landry is considered the local historian to go to if you want to find out about area families or any history of the area.

This government certificate is being offered from 2014-2020 to living veterans that were active during WWII, marking the 75 anniversary of significant milestones in the Second World War.
