NORMA A DUGAN Born in Buffalo, N.Y. in 1924, passed away in Oroville, CA on June 12, 2014. Born to Andrew and Estelle Ruhland, preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, Charles M Dugan. She is survived by her 4 children, Gail (John) Quintel, Dana (Jim) Blanton, Shelley (Jeff) Wilson, and Charles (Chewy) Dugan. She is also survived by nine Grand-Children: Laura (Andy) Walter, Jason (Amy) Quintel, Tasha (Kevin) Johnston, Jennifer (Brice) Shewey, Chris Smyth, Pat (Brittany) Smyth, Meghan (Tyler) Leonard, Chas Dugan and Dane Dugan; and 10 Great GrandChildren: Lucas and Avery Walter; Madison, Jackson and Natalie Quintel; Jacob and Kaitlyn Johnston; Molly and Max Shewey; and Londyn Leonard. She is also survived by her sister, June (Dave) Ocorr, who live in Canandaigua, N.Y.; brother-in-law, Dan (Arlene) Dugan of Fort Myers, FL, and numerous nieces and nephews. Norma was a resident of Oroville for 57 years. She was a long time President, and an active member, of The Friends of the Parks. She was a devoted Bridge player both before and after her retirement from the Butte County School District. She participated and enjoyed both duplicate and party Bridge games, and played tennis weekly with her tennis group at the Bedrock courts. Following her retirement she traveled to Europe, Africa, South America, Canada and China. As an newly married couple Norma and Charles (Chuck) left New York state for Montana, where Chuck studied Forestry at the University of Montana, and she worked in the Zoology Dept. They spent one summer season working for the U.S. Forest Service as fire lookouts. Upon graduation Chuck took a position with the BIM in Coos Bay, Oregon. A job change led them to Oroville in 1957. Norma loved being outdoors and spent many wonderful summers camping with her children and their friends near Fall River. She also enjoyed time spent at Bucks Lake. Her deep enjoyment of the outdoors was passed on to her family, who continue to spend their summers camping, boating and kayaking at Bucks Lake, too. Norma's family would like to thank the wonderful staff at the Expressions unit of Prestige Assisted living of Oroville. They became like family with their sincere care for our mother. A heartfelt thanks to the staff from Butte Home Health & Hospice for their assistance to Norma and her family over the last few weeks. A private service will be held at a later date. The family requests that in lieu of flowers a donation can be made to "The Friends of the Parks", C/O Barbara Painter, 106 Glen Circle Drive, Oroville, CA 95966
