Norma Marie Calabro, 81, of Chillicothe, formerly of Leisure Acres in Washington, passed away at 11:38 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6, 2012, at Heritage Manor in Chillicothe.
Her Funeral Liturgy will be at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 9, 2012, at Clary Funeral Home, 3004 West Lake Avenue in Peoria, with Fr. Keith Walder officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to services at the funeral home.
Norma was born in Omaha, NE on October 25, 1930, the daughter of Edward M. and Mary L. (Brasel) Loehr. They preceded her in death, along with her brother and sister-in-law. She was formerly married to Louis A. Calabro.
She is survived by her daughters, Annette (Gary) Boucher of Peoria and Pat (Dave) Ary of East Peoria; son, Michael (Kathy) Calabro of Peoria; eight grandchildren; and six great grandchildren.
Norma was a parishioner of St. Monica Catholic Church in East Peoria and had been receiving weekly Holy Communion from St. Edward Catholic Church in Chillicothe.
She retired as the manager of Domestics for JC Penny at Northwoods Mall in Peoria. She was formerly employed with Carson Pirie Scott, both in downtown Peoria and later at Northwoods Mall.
In her youth, Norma enjoyed ballroom dancing, planting rose bushes, decorating, getting her hair styled and being “beautified”. She collected animal figurines, loved visiting her neighbors, walking her dog and going to Mass. She loved the holidays, her pets, ice cream, buying clothes and she couldn’t live without her diet soda.
She will be remembered for always helping others and for her dry sense of humor, independence, determination and kindness. She had a great love for animals, adored her family and had a tremendous faith in God and her church.
Memorial contributions may be made in Norma’s memory to Rescue 33 in Chillicothe or to the Peoria Humane Society.
