Norma Jacobs (nee Clancy), age 92.
On December 19, 2021 the last surviving child of Patrick and Charlotte (nee Kazimour) Clancy went to be with Jesus our Lord and Savior.
Preceded in death by her husband of 63 years Thomas and first born son, Tommy (AKA E.Z. Niedziejko), sisters Patricia (Lenny) Franta, Jean (Bob) Schweikert, Elaine (Andy) Gibel, Bernice (Norm) Siewko, Bobbie (John) Tyrpak, brothers Terrence (Nancy nee Gallager), Dennis (Sue nee Paulick).
Survived by children Bernice, Michael (Dominika), David (Christine), grandchildren, step-grandchildren, great grandchildren, step-great grandchildren and four-legged companions Graycie and Jethro (AKA Jack).
Norma spent the majority of her adult life as an excellent home maker for her husband and four children. After raising her children she returned to the work force as a legal secretery. A job she enjoyed for ten plus years until she retired. While raising her children (every winter) she spent months meticulously planning our annual family camping trip. Every summer we camped our way across the country for two to three weeks visiting as many National and State Parks as possible. The destination was different every year. She loved camping and exploring this country with her family. Our parents instilled a love of nature into their children through our family camping vacations. The remainder of the summer was spent in our backyard swimming pool with friends and family who were always welcome to come over for a swim and of course a loud game of Marco Polo. Through the years mom allowed a variety of “pets” in our home; turtles, tad poles, dogs, cats, fish, brine shrimp, snakes, hamsters, gerbils and bird (love birds). Norma was an excellent cook and baker. Her decades long Christmas Cookie Baking tradition will continue as she passed the baton on to her children, grandchildren and friends.
Norma was always honest, always caring, always supportive, always generous, always patient, always kind, always faithful, always hopeful. Greatest of all always a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, neighbor and friend.
Life is filled with events of letting go. Norma will be greatly missed. Our loss is your loss too. God bless you all who knew and loved her.
Per Norma’s request there will not be a formal funeral service or visitation. We will have a family gathering some time after the holidays. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to your favorite Christian organization in honor of Norma.
