Norma Nicholson

May 28, 1929 — Dec. 29, 2013

Norma Louise Nicholson (McMaster) was born May 28, 1929, and died Dec. 29, 2013. She was called many names during her 84 years on this earth. She was the loving wife of Fred for 63 years; a mom of three boys, Greg, Jeff and Phil; a grandmother to Wendy, Brent, Jason, Julia, Jake, Karissa, Heather, Sean (deceased) and Paul; a great-grandmother to Valerie; and a friend to so many.

Norma taught preschool in the family home for many years and worked in the church teaching, singing and directing the choir. She lived most of her life in Watsonville but retired up in the foothills of California with Fred, her devoted husband. Grammy, as all of us called her, struggled with ALS for many years and is now resting with the Lord.

Services will be held at a later date. Please send any gifts to the ALS Association.
