Norma L. Joseph Obituary
Norma L. Joseph, 88, of Lititz, formerly of King of Prussia, Pa., passed away Sunday, June 10, 2012 at Moravian Manor. Born in Philadelphia, Pa. she was the daughter of the late Albert and Olive (Bardsley) Miller. She was married to G. Ralph Joseph for 40 years, who passed away in 1986. Norma was a 1941 honors graduate of the Philadelphia High School for Girls. She worked as a bookkeeper for the former East Falls Chemical Corporation retiring from there in 1993. Norma was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Fairview Village, PA for over 40 years. She was an avid reader and was a member of the alumni association of the Philadelphia High School for Girls. Throughout her life, Norma was intrinsic to the happiness of those around her through her sense of humor, often bending language to better suit the occasion and caring, by extending her heart and home to grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends who became her own. Norma's home was alive with love, art, music, literature, and film. She loved traditions and brought verve and fun to the preparations often making them better than the event itself. We will miss her intelligence, insight, wit, humor, affection, and deep, deep love. She is survived by her daughter, Mary Lou, wife of Jesse Alvarado, of TX; her son, Brian Tischler, husband of Dianne, of Lakeview, Mn.; a brother, James Miller, of Barnsboro, NJ; Six Grandchildren, Hannah, Heidi, Kathi, Krista, Matthew and Sarah; four Great-grandchildren, and many extended family. She was preceded in death by her brothers David Miller and Paul Miller; a sister Phyllis Cassidy; and her daughter Phyllis-jane Stetser.
