Norma Jean was a devoted wife and a wonderful mother, who instilled in her children the values they would require to succeed throughout life ... Norma facilitated after school evenings filled with homework help & multiplication flash card exercises ... There was always time for Mom to preside over Brownie, Cub Scout and Girl Scout activities, attend Little League Baseball games, and still find the time to enjoy a night of pinochle with friends & neighbors ... All of this while being an excellent Spiritual & Emotional Life Coach and Financial Provider to her Family.
Later in life, Norma enjoyed bowling, gardening, reading, crossword puzzles, watching Classic Movies & spending time with her beloved Lhasa Apso, 'Baby' & her cats.
Norma Jean became a leader in every facet of life and industry she entered into ... Catholic Convert; Motherhood; Personnel/HR Agencies; Care Giver; Real Estate Broker; Retail Industry; Jewelry Business; Dry-Cleaning Business; Moving Industry; Electrical Contractor ... Not only did Norma Jean grasp the full concepts, principles and understanding of each business & industry she served, she was very well respected by her higher-ups, peers, constituents, co-worker's and subordinates ... Wherever and whatever it was she did.
There were many important priorities that Norma Jean would always convey to her family and friends ... The top 2 priorities for her were always Faith & Family first ...
When A Mother Dies, We Lose A Piece Of Who We Are ... We Lose The Person Whose Story Provides The Beginning Of Our Own ...
