Norma Irene Fosmire Obituary

Norma Irene Fosmire passed away on December 29, 2017, at the age of 93. She was born on March 3, 1924, in Swink, Colorado to John and Lockey Hayes and was the 9th of their 10 children. ~During the Depression the Hayes family left Colorado and worked in the fruit orchards in Arizona and Southern California and finally settled in Chico.

Norma graduated from Chico High School. She met her future husband, George F. Fosmire, Jr. at her job with Pacific Telephone. After their marriage Norma became a homemaker. George passed away in Yuba City in 2005 after 59 years of marriage.

Norma enjoyed bridge, golfing, traveling the world, crossword puzzles, reading and spending time with her family. Norma and George both volunteered for the Christian Assistance Network and food bank in Yuba City as well as many other church activities at Grace Methodist Church.

Norma is survived by her daughters, Janis M. Quessenberry (Jim) and Pamela K. Stoddart (Jeff); granddaughter, Megan; and step-granddaughters, Tena and Sara. Norma was the last of her siblings and is survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

She was a funny and kind woman who will be greatly missed by her family. Jan, Pam and family would like to thank the staff at Carlton Senior Living and Sutter Hospice for the wonderful care that they provided Norma.

At Norma's request there will be no service.
