October 13, 1938 - December 25, 2013 We celebrate the life, love and friendship of Norma Jo Maidel. Born on October 13, 1938, Norma was the only child of local artist, Minalee White, and successful businessman, Charles W. White. She graduated from Pomona College where she met and married Mark Maidel, her soul mate of 53 years. She was a teacher in WA, Santa Monica, Malibu and Somis. She was an education consultant and dedicated her life to philanthropy and education well into her retirement. Norma was involved with numerous organizations including: World Affairs Council, American Association of University Women, Political Caucus, and Cal State University Channel Islands. Norma and Mark traveled the world and shared their knowledge. Norma is survived by her loving husband and best-friend, Mark, "son" Terry Walby; sister-in-law Joan Neuhaus; nieces: Suzanne Neuhaus, Catherine Hansen, Caroline Neuhaus Wesley; "grandsons" and great nieces and nephews. Norma will be missed greatly by her family, friends and community. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Serra Center, adjacent to Padre Serra Church, at 5205 Upland Road, Camarillo, 93012 on January 7, 2014 at 1 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Norma Maidel Scholarship Fund for CSUCI, in care of AAUW Camarillo, P.O. Box 862, Camarillo, 93010 or to a charity of your choice
