Our Beloved Norma aka ‘Red’, departed this life on October 16th,2021 at Richmond University Medical Center, Staten Island, New York.  She was born in Staten Island, NY and remained a lifelong resident. Norma graduated from Port Richmond High School and attended The College of Staten Island. She worked for Citibank in Manhattan, but her passion for helping others lead her to a career in Children Services and eventually to Staten Island Developmental Disabilities Council where she retired.

Norma was loved by many, for she truly had a loving and giving spirit, she didn’t hesitate to help others, Norma loved to laugh, loved to her TV shows, loved pets, loved her old school disco music and oh how she loved to dance. She went from doing the hustle to line dancing…. she was the queen of line dancing.  Norma was very creative and could make just about anything.  She loved to sew, she loved to crotchet, and we all know she loved to cook and bake. 

We are so grateful and honored to have spent time with Norma during her journey on earth, to love and be loved by Norma before she gained her wings and went to Heaven.  We will miss her, we will cry, but most of all, we will celebrate her life.

May Norma rest in Paradise!
