Norma J. Cowell

Norma J. Cowell, 91, a long-time resident of Blairstown, passed away peacefully on November 6, 2023. Born in Brooklyn, New York on April 12, 1932, to August and Rosa (Spressert) Plett, she passed away at her home on November 6, 2023. She was a welcoming and happy face at the Truck Stop in Columbia where she was a cashier and store manager.

She had many interests including word games, knitting and crocheting, and making lovely items for her family and friends. Norma had a love of the outdoors where she enjoyed gardening vegetables, then cooking and baking the fruits of her labor. Her family always considered her the true matriarch of the family.

She is survived by three daughters, Girlene, of Easton, Pennsylvania; Evelyn of Blairstown; and Michele of Bridgewater; three sons, Chris of Wantage; Ted of Easton, Pennsylvania; and John of Blairstown. She was blessed with 12 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and one soon to be added to the family. She is predeceased by her son Charles (Charlie) in May 2023.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation be made in Norma’s memory to the American Cancer Society, 7 Ridgedale Avenue, Cedar Knolls, NJ 07932.
