Harlyne Norris Obituary
Southern California philanthropist Harlyne Norris, namesake for the Palos Verdes Performing Arts Conservatory theater, died Saturday from cancer at the age of 83.
Norris was best known by the buildings named after her, particularly the Harlyne J. Norris Pavilion at the Palos Verdes Performing Arts Conservatory and a cancer research center at USC. It was a commitment to philanthropy and her family that set her apart, said her daughter, Lisa Hansen, chair of the board of trustees for the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.
"What made her so special is her sharp mind and her wonderful personality and sense of humor," Hansen said. "She had a real zeal for life."
