Norma Monica De Souza
May 6, 1939 – October 10, 2020
Norma Dr Souza passed away in Puyallup, WA, on October 10, 2020. She was born in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago on May 6, 1939 to Oscar and Gwendolyn James. She immigrated as an adult and became a U.S. citizen.
Norma is lovingly remembered by her children: Debra Sneed, Trevor (Danielle) De Souza, Lystra (Michael) Zerba, Liseil (Neil) Baird, as well as her Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren.
Norma was always serving, whether it be in her career as a nanny, or CNA. She had such a huge heart. Norma enjoyed travelling and spending time with friends and family. It was important to her to share her love of her home country to those around her. You would often find her cooking some Trinidadian favorites and telling stories of “home”.
The joy and love of the Lord was never far from her as she expressed, through constant prayers and singing of hymns. Norma shared her heart through her large smile and was loved by many.
She will be forever be remembered as the Matriarch of our family. Her sacrifices will never be forgotten, and her legacy will be carried on for generations.
The Lord, the Lord is my strength and my song. - Isiah 12:2
