Norma Jean Williams

Norma Jean Williams, the one of nine children, born to the late Norman
Clinton Washington and the late Elvira Mae Washington, was born in
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Norma Jean was raised and received her formal education in Gettysburg, Pa.,
then relocated to Philadelphia and ended in Harrisburg, Pa.
She retired from the Commonwealth of PA, Pennsylvania State Employee
Retirement System (PSERS). She was the union president for AFSCME Local
3101. She remained active in the union after retirement. Her commitment for
equality was her motivation for remaining active following retirement.
In her leisure time, she enjoyed traveling, reading, doing cross word
puzzles, watching westerns and going to the casinos with her sister Shirley.
Norma Jean was a loving, generous, and out spoken woman. She loved and
spanked you all in one breath when needed. She embraced anyone that walked
through her door. If you needed some advice, a meal or a place to lay your
head, her home was open to you.
Norma Jean was a devout Catholic and believed in the church and appealed to
her children and grand children to follow the Christian faith. She strived
for her children and grand children to have a relationship with the lord.
