NORMAN--Lenore, died peacefully at home on December 21, 2012 surrounded by her family. Beloved wife of Milton, devoted mother of Stephen and Judith, loving sister of Roy and sisters-in-law Joan and Jacki. Lenore was a lifelong New Yorker who loved the city and its heritage. She was an early champion of historic preservation and served as Executive Director of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission for almost a decade, overseeing New York's first comprehensive survey of historic structures, the establishment of historic districts and the protection and preservation of many of the City's most significant buildings. Later, as chair of the Preservation Committee of Manhattan's Community Board #7, she devoted countless hours to protecting the historic and cultural fabric of West Side neighborhoods. Her charm, elegance and generosity of mind and spirit will be sorely missed by friends and colleagues who knew and worked with her over the years. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her honor to Sloan Kettering Hospital. Services will be held Monday, 11:15am at "The Riverside", 76th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, NYC.
