Norma Jean Fernandez went to be with our Lord on November 2, 2023, surrounded by her loving husband, her children and grandchildren.
She was born on December 17, 1957, Fallon, NV, to George and Lillian Lucero.
Norma was a loving and charismatic person. Anyone who met her loved her. She had a personality that could light up any room. Anywhere she went she could make a friend. Her loving and kind soul always left a long impression.
Norma’s favorite pastime was spending time at the casino with her loving husband Leo. If no one could find them chances were they were gambling together.
She had such a beautiful mind, she was so creative that she made the most beautiful crafts from drawing, quilting and her latest hobby of making Gnome cups with her husband and daughter.
