Norma Bailey Kromer passed away on June 7, 2019.
Norma was born on February 18, 1922 and grew up on a farm in Indiana during the Depression. She met the love of her life during the war on a blind date and married 1st Lt. Donald S. Kromer on June 2, 1945. They shared 59½ years of life and love in Connecticut, New Jersey and Massachusetts including the final 24 years of retirement in a classic antique Cape home on Cape Cod. After Don’s passing, Norma packed up the wagons and moved to Tennessee to be closer to family. Norma was a voracious reader, a master seamstress, a devoted mother and a loving wife to Don.
Norma spent her final days in Willowbrook Hospice Care at Somerfield Health Care Center surrounded by her 5 children in Brentwood, Tennessee.
Norma is survived by her close friend, Sal Amato and 5 children: Maggie, Peter (Jess), Marty (Bill), Amy and Beth (John) as well as 9 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Our love for her is everlasting. Norma will be interred with Don in a private ceremony at the National Cemetery in Bourne, Massachusetts, on Friday June 14.
