Farewell to a Good Friend!

Norma Young

December 15, 1920-- March 6, 2018

Norma Young, long-time volunteer, Board member and happy Farmer's Market seller for the Friends, passed away peacefully at her Laguna Beach cottage at the age of 97. Her cheerful personality and dedication made her a great asset to the Friends.

She was born in Portland, Oregon but spent most of her life in California, including graduating from U.C.L.A. After her marriage she lived in Bakersfield for many years with her husband and four daughters. After the family moved to Laguna Beach, Norma  Opened a Scandinavian import store in Dana Point Harbor. She also learned to paint. Her portrait of Hortense which was commissioned by Hortense's friend Joyce Dusenberry, is now displayed  in the Miller home--a gift from Joyce's estate.

We are grateful to have known her.
