Norma M. Spagnola

November 14, 1934 — July 12, 2020

Norma M. Spagnola (Cecchi) passed away peacefully from complications
of pneumonia on July 12th at Willowcrest Nursing Pavilion in Sandwich,
IL.  She was 85 years old.  Norma lived in Sandwich at her home on 6th
street for many years.  Norma married her high school sweetheart from
Morton High School in Cicero, Il where they enjoyed life with friends
and family.  A few years later they moved to Lisle Il which became the
hometown where they raised their growing family.

 Norma was preceded in death by her husband, Alphonse John Spagnola in
1975, and her mother Lena Hunter (Cecchi) in 2006.  After the passing
of her husband at a fairly young age, Norma continued raising her
family of five children while also working full time with unwavering
strength and courage.  She embraced life putting the needs of those
she loved before hers.  She had an amazing sense of humor, and the
wisdom to see the pleasure and comfort that come from the simple
things in life.  She was a remarkable woman in many ways.

Norma is survived by her brother Marino Cecchi, sister-in-law, Rosalie
Cecchi, and their beautiful family.  She was blessed with a large
extended Italian family which was one of the true joys of her life.
From Norma, her entire generation and the immigrant parents who raised
them, we learned the true meaning of the words “Mi Familia”.

Norma was an amazing mother, loving grandmother, and great grandmother
to a blessed family:
Laureen (daughter) & Dean Francis.   Steven (Son) & Sheelah Spagnola.
Alphonse “Lee” (son) & Joanne Spagnola.  Vicki Spagnola (daughter),
Carmen Spagnola (son) and Jean Vincent, sister at heart.
Grandchildren: Kevin, Keith & Kourtney, Eric & Whitney, Corinne &
Bevan, Angie & Nick, Alphonse & Allie, Jessica & Brian, Jamie & John,
Natalie & Tom, Nick & Kristen, Eric & Kelly, Katelyn, Lelia, Jay, and Jeremiah.
Great grandchildren: Angelina, Lucy & Clay, Joel & Jordan,
Drea & Bea, Hailey & Easton.
