Louisville - Norma Stewart Emerson of Louisville, KY died December January 22, 2020 at the age of 67. She was born to the late Robert Stewart and Jenny Duncan Stewart on October 21, 1952 in Bloomfield, KY.

Norma graduated from the first class of Nelson County High School in 1970, then briefly attended Western Kentucky University, before moving to Louisville to attend business school. She was first hired to an HR position at St. Anthony's Hospital where she was promoted to Director of Human Resources and worked for over 23 years before closing in 1995. Norma then worked as the Human Resources Director for Franciscan Healthcare for over 13 years, and then finally finishing her career as Human Resources Director at Episcopal Church Home, retiring in 2015.

Despite her successful professional career, family and friends were Norma's passion. She raised three sons, adored her two very young grandchildren, and was a very involved aunt to her nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews. She loved being involved in the choir as an active member of Middletown Christian Church, and was a devoted friend to many people for many years.

Norma enjoyed cooking, singing, reading, and spending time with her friends and family. She kept long-lasting, deep friendships and was a wonderful, comforting listener. Also, she gave generously to many charities close to her heart.
