My Aunt Norma was my last living relative from that generation and Oh how she loved us. While my parents could be critical, at times, to my Aunt. I was wonderful. My big mouth. which my parents found objectionable, my Aunt regarded as a positive. My Aunt was a wonderful cook and we always did Thanksgiving at her home with all the cousins. Her family would come to us for Passover. My Aunt Norma and Uncle Jerry were my parents best friends and they often vacationed together. My father hated traveling but could not refuse his sister and so my mother (who loved to travel) got to have her way. My Aunt and Uncle were the kindest people I knew. I loved my Aunt and I will miss the way she laughed and how independent she was, even at the end. Her passing is end of an entire generation in my family and that is a sad thing, indeed.

My mom was a force to be reckoned with. She was a fighter which I am sure got her to the ripe old age of almost 96. She was also loving and an incredible caretaker. During my turbulent teenage years we fought but she was always there in time of need.
My mom was a brilliant woman who obtained a Masters degree when women rarely attended college. She became a teacher so she could be there when my brother and I returned home from school. In her later years she became the child and I the mother and she would even joke about this. But she always retained her fierce desire for independence and fought old age even as it overtook her. She died at home as she had always wanted. Mom, you will be missed every day.
Your loving daughter,

There is no question that my aunt loved me and coddled me being the youngest niece on this side of the family. I so looked forward to visiting her, especially on Thanksgiving and enjoying her cooking and baking--We were a loud group!!!

The most exciting parts of the visits, for me ,were when she pulled out a big bag of hand me downs that my cousin Joanne could no longer use,--------- Wow, so cool-'new clothes' and free!!!!

- I so treasured family togetherness.

As a young adult , I started to write poems. She treasured them and when we all got together to celebrate her 90th birthday I wrote a long one and read it aloud to a large group.. I . thought it was mediocre. Aunt Norma thought it was fantastic. That was all that counted and this made me smile!!

My aunt encouraged me when I started teaching and gave me some pointers. She always praised me for doing this kind of work.

Rich and Joanne, my heart is with you

RIP Aunt Norma,
