Norma J. Boyd

Norma J. Boyd, nee Waite, 90, of Waterloo, IL, died December 29, 2021, in Belleville, IL. She was born May 15, 1931, in Karnak, IL.

She is survived by her husband William Boyd; children Sandra (Tim) Ritter, Joanne Kramer, Gilbert (Mary) Woodrome Jr., Thomas (Linda) Woodrome, Jeff (Vicky) Woodrome, and Janet (Dale) Vise; step-daughter Debbie (Jim) Cronenberg; 20 grandchildren; and 41 great grandchildren; sister & brothers Jane (Tony) Meglio, John (Alison) Waite, and Charles (Cheri) Waite; nieces; nephews; cousins; and many friends.

She is preceded in death by her 1st husband Gilbert E. Woodrome Sr.; son James Patrick Woodrome; parents Virgil and Bertha (nee Martin) Waite; son-in-law Jerry Kramer; sisters Elizabeth Cull and Joanne Kuhn.

Norma loved life and lived it to the fullest in her 90 plus years. She enjoyed dancing, cooking and playing a good card game. Her greatest love, besides her family was her love of singing and encouraging others to join in. She was married twice to two very different and special men. Norma created memories for her family and friends that will be cherished by all. Though we are sad now, she would want us to continue her legacy of enjoying life with great zest and joy. She was a member of First Baptist Church - Waterloo, IL.

As an expression of sympathy, the family prefers memorial contributions to:
American Heart Assn. or Alzheimer's Assn.

We remember Norma from the joy she shared with her children. In her
Christmas card, she mentioned the love she had for her family. A very respected lady.

I have great memories of our 2 families getting together for the Holidays, 2 brothers and their wives and each with 6 children a piece. What a tribe and what fun!! Aunt Norma was always kind to me. I know she's in heaven and I know we will see her again some day.

I was in Red Hat Ladies with Norma quite a few years ago. What a warm, fun- loving woman. I still remember her very fondly.

We are so sorry to hear of her passing. Prayers for the entire family.

Norma was such a sweet, kind and genuine lady. She will be sorely missed.

My earliest memory of Norma was going to her home for a fun evening of cards with all the family. Oh, it was loud, crazy and so much fun! She always had a smile on her face and was kind to everyone. What a gift to all who knew her.
