A long time resident of Ross passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family and loved ones on Wednesday, February 20, 2002. Norma was a San Francisco native, who graduated from Balboa High School. She spent most of her working years at Burgermister Brewing Co., where she loved being a telephone operator. Norma often said, "I'd still be answering the phone if Burgermister was still in business." She had a true love of people and animals. Norma had a winning smile and an infectious twinkle in her eye, when she was seen walking her beloved schnauzer, Maggie. Because of her love of animals, Norma spent many hours volunteering at the Marin Humane Society Thrift Shop. Norma and her beloved long time companion, Gordon Perry, were recently married at a lovely candlelight ceremony on February 17, with Father Healy of Saint Anselm Catholic Church presiding.
Norma is survived by her loving husband, Gordon Perry; her son, Scott and daughter-in-law, Judy of Fairmont, California; her grandchildren, James of Tracy, California, Julie Kaiser and her husband, Scott of Milpitas, California; and her beloved sister, Marguerite Jordan of San Anselmo.
