Norma Roldan

Roxbury Township, Mrs. Norma Roldan died on January 24, 2018 at Merry Heart in Succasunna at the age of 95. She struggled with Alzheimer’s Disease for more than 5 years. She lived most of her life on the upper west side of Manhattan, NY. She worked as a private duty nurse before she retired. Norma moved to N J at the age of 91 to be near her daughter. She delighted in telling stories about the past. She also enjoyed dancing at Roseland Ballroom on Sunday afternoons and reading the N Y Daily News newspaper and biographies. She loved chocolate, wearing French berets, red lipstick and a glass of red wine in the evening.

Norma had a great empathy for human suffering, and almost at the end of her life, she embraced her ancestral roots. Predeceased by her husband Robert, she leaves her devoted daughter, Sondra and a daughter in Brazil. Heartfelt gratitude is extended to all those at Merry Heart who cared for her through the years. Thanks also to the Compassus Hospice.

Arrangements are by the Davis & Hepplewhite Funeral Home, 96 Main Street, Succasunna, NJ 973-584-7264 (davishepplewhitefh.com)
