Norma C. Ramirez

October 12, 1959April 12, 2018

Norma C. Ramirez gained her glorious angelic crown on Thursday, April 12, 2018 as she entered into her eternal life in Heaven. She was surrounded by her loving family at a hospital in Corpus Christi as she took her last breath. Norma began her earthly life on October 12, 1959 when she was born to Ramiro Cantu and Alicia Anzualda Cantu in Falfurrias, Texas. She was raised in Falfurrias and grew up with five sisters.

After marrying the love of her life, Raul M. Ramirez, they had two children and became the proud business owners of Cosby’s Furniture and Gifts located in Falfurrias. She also worked for the Department of Human Services and retired as a Supervisor. She also enjoyed a singing career and was the Choir Director for St. Ann's Catholic Church of Encino. As described by her children, Norma was a mother who has given so much and asked for so little in return. She was always there for them, teaching and listening to them, helping and forgiving them, loving them and always, always paving the way for them to strive for success. In the simplest term, she was simply magnificent.

My condolences to Norma's family. She was a beautiful and loving individual . I have known Norma since we were in Kindergarten and on through the school years. I had the privilege of visiting with her in recent years on several festive occasions and each time we would just pick up where we left of before. Going to miss our comadre visits. I will never forget mi amiga Norma.

My deepest condolences to Norma's family. May her memories bring you peace.

I remember Norma and Raul attending a funeral service one day that I was directing. I never new they sang and played music together. It was so nice and her voice was beautiful.

God Bless You.
