Norma Marie Renth, 79, of Swansea, IL, passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, June 23, 2020.

Norma was born December 28, 1940 in East St. Louis, IL to Arthur and Katie (Sperino) Leisen. She married Virgil Renth on November 17, 1962 in Collinsville, IL. He survives and resides in Swansea, IL.
