Norma and I were childhood friends. Although we grew apart after college, she will always be remembered as a dear and kind friend. My heart is broken to find out about her passing at such a young age. I have so many memories of her and I spending time together when we were young at Saint Monica and then at Pace High school, and briefly at Barry. Her very young life was filled with tragedy that only a person like her could have gone through with such grace and humility. I wish that we would have stayed in touch since I often wondered what happened to my dear friend. I knew that her gifts as a teacher would served her well since I personally learned so much from her. I know that she knew God well and that he is ready to accept her. May you rest in heaven with Erica and your mom. Some day we will meet again sweet friend.

I met Norma 22yrs ago, when I first started OCPS. She was the very first teacher I ever assisted. Our first meeting (unknown to us that we would be working together at the time), was so natural and easy going. You've heard people say " it's like we've known each other for years "...and it was TRUE. I had prayed that the Lord would give me someone wonderful and fun to work with. ..and He did. Our reaction when we found out-- complete joy with a huge heart felt hug. She reveal that she had prayed the same. We laughed and shared another hug. I had the best first 4yrs in OCPS. We were a great pre-K team, so in sync with each other. Unfortunately due to OCPS's budget, we ended up at different schools. We were so sad and disappointed. We had the best, BEST times with our Pre-kers. Now I'm here with tears and a heavy heart. My friend, Norma, your love for the Lord, and spirituality, undoubted. You were a bright light with that smile, such a sweet angel of a person. Norma, I have "no worries", because now you are a sweet angel at home. Love and Miss you.

I met Norma at Sherrie Doherty's in Orlando, she always knelt next to Sherrie's chair, much like a little girl soaking in all the knowledge and expertise that Sherrie offered for assisting children from babyhood on up the scale of life! Once, Norma, grew in the area she flapped her wings and soared for all children! She was a Dynamo and loved God first! Marvin, you will be missed, but decided to bring you home to rest in His arms! You did more for thousands of lives in your short life than many do in so many more years here on Earth! RIP

You were my sister. We shared our personal dreams and our desires to work in advancing God's Kingdom. I can't wait to see you again in our Eternal Home. Love you!

We met Ms. Norma when she was serving at Orlando World Outreach Center, caring for the children with special needs. She did a presentation during a training session one Saturday about how important it was to serve them and provide a service that was inclusive to all children no matter their capabilities. You could tell during that presentation that she really had a heart for those children. She was such a light, full of kindness. We are grateful for the example she set to serve and love all. I know she is with Jesus and well. We will continue to pray for her family and friends.

Norma,
You were not a blood relative to us yet you were still family. A blessed sister in the Lord who was faithful and a wonderful loving example of what a Christian truly is. A person that trusts God, walks with Him and for Him daily. You were a care giver for my son with special needs which you ensured were met. His special needs were special to you and you took time to work with him to achieve more than we knew were possible. Your personal touch is evident in how you took time to help Seth decorate his room with his special things so that his living space was uniquely designed for Him and while it is Sethś space we will always see Norma there as well.

I met Ms. Norma at Orlando World Outreach Center. We served in O'kids together and worked with the special needs children. Ms. Norma showed me love and patience when working with the kids. This was something new for me, but she made me feel welcomed and also worked with me to understand and love the children we worked with. I am going to miss her. Until we meet in heaven. Enjoy your new body and wonderful robe. 🧡🤍🧡💜

My dear friend Norma (Normita) was truly an angel here on Earth. I had the honor and privilege to have worked with her at KinderCare many years ago. We continued our friendship through out the years with one special trip to Key West where we went on a spiritual retreat. That's where I learned just how much she loved God. In some ways, I thought of Norma as my spiritual compass. She had a beautiful soul, a loving heart and a kind word about everyone she met!
RIP my dear friend, you've earned your wings.........til we meet again!
