Norma Trickey passed away surrounded by family on October 11, 2017 at 96 years young. She was a very strong woman so it was no surprise she became the matriarch of many women starting with her daughter’s Katherine Horstmann and Carol Payton. She then had 7 granddaughters; Renee Wales, Kimberly Obennoskey, Anastastia Payton, Katheryn Anderson, Stephanie Harrington, Felicia Moss and Tiffany Schoenauer. She had 19 greatgrandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter. She was also thought of by many as their own surrogate grandmother. She was granny to all.

Norma owned her own beauty salon for many years and loved to travel with her late husband, Odell where she even experienced a hurricane in Hawaii. She was an active person and full of life. She loved making porcelain dolls and was a part of a bowling league and even won many prizes on Lets Go Bowling. She spent many a weekend going to softball games always keeping score with her paper and pen…making sure the umpires were doing their job! She was also a very skilled seamstress who made whatever her family wished like costumes, doll clothes and even a wedding dress. She was a true caregiver her entire life.

A visitation in honor of Norma will be held on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at Westover Funeral Home from 6-8 pm. Funeral services will be 10:00 am Monday October 16, 2017 also at the Funeral Home. Burial will follow in the Glendale Cemetery. She will be missed, but heaven just became a lot more fun!
