Norma Eldonna Wolf Obituary
Norma Eldonna Wolf ("MoMo")



Passed into her promised heaven on October 17, 2011. Norma was the 6th and final child of Joseph and Agnes Burkus, originally from Lithuania, settling in Montana and then Wyoming in the early 1900's. She was born in Cumberland, Wyoming on December 29, 1923 and was cherished by her siblings and future relatives, always eager for a party, an outing, a vacation, or sporting activity. She was married in 1945 to Aaron Andrew Wolf, a surfing champion and early founder of the sport, until his passing in 2001. Together they lived an enviable life, traveling, dancing, waterskiing, partying, playing multiple musical instruments, bowling and ultimately finding their calling - golf! Both earned their own holes-in-ones, and Norma was the President of the Alondra Park Women's Golf Club several times in the late 80's and early 1990's. Norma and Aaron started their lives together in Redondo Beach and then found their home for life in Rolling Hills Estates in 1958. She leaves her special sister and pal, Bertha Henry of Sun City West, Arizona; their long lost but then found cousin, Al Gibas of Fountain Hills, Arizona; as well as several nieces and nephews and their spouses. Her brother-in-law, Edwin Wolf, still resides in Manhattan Beach. Norma's closest niece, JoAnne McLaughlin of Lake Arrowhead and only great niece, Victoria Reynolds of El Segundo, held a special place in her heart. Momo was an integral part of their entire lives. She joins her parents and two brothers and two other sisters and all their spouses in heaven. Her niece and namesake, Norma Jean Burkus Blau, also awaits her company in God's Arms. A celebration of Momo's life will be held at her long-time favorite place, The Red Onion, 736 Silver Spur Road, Rolling Hills Estates on All Souls Day, November 1, 2011 at 11:00 AM. She would love for her friends and family to share some of their favorite stories about their times with her at this gathering. Internment will be private at Green Hills Memorial Park, where she will be reunited with her beloved husband. In lieu of flowers, Norma wishes that Hospice of Torrance Memorial Hospital be able to continue to assist others, with your help. She has thanked you in advance!
