“Fairy Norwood was an exuberant and wonderful person. From the moment she joined Peoples Temple, she brought a positivity and inclusiveness to everyone she met. She always worked hard, but made no effort to show off. She was beautiful and I can remember many times when she danced and swayed during services, with total enthusiasm. She was a roll model of someone who worked hard and kept a positive mindset. It was always a pleasure spending time with her!” - Laura Johnston Kohl
