Norma Lillian Laskey, passed away at age 92, on Christmas Day, of complications
of breast cancer. Norma was predeceased by her parents, Allen and Lillie Laskey, and her sister, Barbara. She is survived by her brother, Richard Laskey, of Medford, and 24 devoted nieces and nephews, who she loved dearly.
Norma was a lifelong resident of Everett. She took great pride in being able to recite Albert Parlin’s “Character” until her final days. Norma was active in the County Road Congregational Church of Chelsea, where she served as Treasurer for many years. She enjoyed greeting her neighbors from the front porch at her Everett homestead, where she lived since 1936.
Upon graduation from Everett High School, Norma was employed by the Middlesex County National Bank in Everett Square, beginning her 43-year career in banking. She was promoted to assistant vice president at BayBank, which later became what is now Bank of America.
Norma enjoyed traveling the United States and abroad, including two trips to Norway and another to London. She truly enjoyed her time spent at her summer home in Pemaquid, Maine.
Norma had a great sense of humor and used it often. She would liven up the family gatherings with her fancy accents, trivia ability, and quick wit. Her large extended family and friends will dearly miss her.
