Obituary of Norma M. Butch
Norma M. Butch, 80, of Rome, passed away on Thursday, July 7, 2022 at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Utica. She was born in Rome on March 8, 1942, a daughter of the late Russell and Margaret ( Ernenwein) Baker. On October 7, 1964, she was united in marriage to Carl Butch Jr. who passed away in December 1981.
Norma worked on the floor of Rome Manufacturing as a machinist for several years before retiring.
She was a selfless woman with an amazing sense of humor and would do anything for anyone. Her greatest pleasures were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Norma enjoyed taking trips to the casino and playing Bingo. She loved to sit down and relax with a good murder mystery novel. She always looked forward to her weekly card games with her rowdy friends and family.
Norma is survived by two daughters, Gina Ball and Candice Butch; a son and daughter-in-law, Carl Butch III (Terri); two brothers, Frederick Baker and James Storrs (Linda); nine grandchildren, Michael and Brian Thomas, Missy Parlow (Joseph), and Elizabeth, Carl IV, Christopher, Natalie, Adam and Dominic Butch; two great-grandchildren, Alyssa and Theo; sister-in-law, Charleen Baker; brother-in-law, Ken Dukett; several nieces and nephews; many, many friends, including the rowdy card-playing group; and her fur baby, Luna. She was predeceased by a son, Nicholas Butch; a sister, Eleanor Dukett; six brothers, Harold, Leonard, William, David and Francis Baker and Larry Storrs; and a special friend, Susie Posello.
Norma’s family would like to thank the First Responders and staff of the ER at Rome Health and St. Elizabeth’s CTICU for their amazing care and compassion.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, July 12, at 11:00 a.m. at St. John the Baptist Church. Interment will take place in St. John’s Cemetery. Family and friends are invited to call at Nunn and Harper Funeral Home, Inc., 418 N.
