July 2, 1916 - Feb. 9, 2013
Norma Mae Lohnes, 96, passed away Saturday in a local hospital after a brief illness. She was born in Ipswich, South Dakota and has been a Benicia resident since 1983. She worked as a Machinist for more than 16 years.
Norma was a dedicated volunteer both for Kaiser Hospital in Vallejo where she logged more than 10,000 hours and for Benicia Little League where she ran the canteen at Maria Field for many years. Several years ago the canteen was renamed "Norma's Nook" in her honor.
Norma is survived by her niece, Pamela (Ted) Moore and her great nieces and nephews, Gabriel Closhon and Justin and Jessica Moore.
At Norma's request, no services will be held. The family prefers donations to the Benicia Little League. Arrangements and scattering her ashes at sea are under the direction of Passalacqua Funeral Chapel.
