Driving Miss Norma by Ramie Liddle
All Home Care Matters was honored to welcome Ramie Liddle to the show for an interview about the viral sensation, “Driving Miss Norma” and to learn about saying “Yes” to living.
Ramie Liddle is the best-selling co-author of Driving Miss Norma: An Inspirational Story About What Really Matters at the End of Life (HarperOne, 2017) and is a dynamic a public speaker.
As well as being a high school counselor, ordained minister, long-distance boat captain, and one-time cherry farmer, Ramie is foremost a nomad. She has traveled extensively by land and sea throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada with her husband, Tim, and their standard poodle and therapy dog, Ringo.
The traveling team became fortuitous caregivers for Tim’s 90-year-old mom, Norma, after she received a cancer diagnosis only two days after her husband, Leo, suddenly died. The approach they took toward Norma’s end-of-life care attracted the attention of millions around the world. Ramie has since become a vocal advocate for positive end-of-life experiences for both the dying and those who care for them.
