Norma Allman (nee MacDonald), 90, passed away on Monday, March 5, 2018 at her home, surrounded by love. Born on May 1, 1927 in Shorewood, Wisconsin, Norma was the daughter of the late Charlotte E. Gittins and Arthur Case MacDonald. She was the beloved wife of the late R. Neale Allman who predeceased her in 2010. Norma graduated from Eastern High School, received a Bachelor of Arts degree from The Peabody Institute, started a family, then began teaching instrumental music in Baltimore County schools in 1967. Music was an important part of her life. She was a life-long trombonist who played with various organizations such as the Conn Music Store band, Carl Hamilton Orchestra, and the Baltimore County Senior Swing Band. She and her late husband formed, and led, the "Never Too Late Band" at Carroll Lutheran Village. She also played recorder in the Early Music Society of Central Maryland, and led a choral group for the Women's Club of Glyndon. She was a long-term member of Glyndon United Methodist Church. Surviving Norma are her children Carol Neary Sullivan (Edward), and Catherine Neary; grandchildren Jennifer Thomas (John Gehrt II), and Alexander Neary; great-grandchildren Deanna Marion (Alex), and Morgan Thomas; one niece and three nephews. Her family grew to include Neale's children Michael Allman (Lisa), Mark Allman (Tammy), Marcie Glinecki (Roy), Mindy Gehres (Michael), Matthew Allman, and Malcolm Allman (Diane); and many loving grandchildren. Norma is also survived by her companion, Don Moore. In addition to her parents and husband, Norma was predeceased by her son James Arthur Neary, and sister Marion Bailey. A memorial service is planned for Saturday, April 14th at 1:00 in Krug Chapel at Carroll Lutheran Village, 300 St. Lukes Way, Westminster, Maryland.
