Norma Ruth (Wolff) MosesSeptember 8, 1930 ~ October 1, 2017 (age 87)
Norma Ruth Wolff Moses, age 87, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 1, 2017. Born to Herman A. and Fanny B. Wolff on September 8, 1930 in Erie, PA, Norma was an accomplished pianist who studied at the New England Conservatory of Music and The University of Miami. She married Herbert Moses on May 11, 1952. An avid bridge player, Norma loved classical music, symphony, and live theater. She spent many hours volunteering at the Temple Sisterhood in Erie and was a docent at The Toledo Museum of Art. One of Norma’s most favorite passions was cooking and baking, and was known for her famous chocolate cake that she loved making for each family member’s birthday. She also loved to eat out with her “peeps.” Norma worked as a travel agent, and thoroughly enjoyed her opportunities to travel the world with friends and family members, including taking her grandchildren on trips. Norma will be remembered
best for her infectious sense of humor and appreciation for the absurd and corny perspective on life. Her passion for laughter and relishing in the time spent with her adoring family that she loved dearly will certainly be her lasting legacy. Her most favorite activity was telling stories from the past and cracking up at her own jokes that never seemed to get old. She loved a “new audience.” She is survived by her children, Debbe Skutch (Steve), Barry Moses (Karen Leizman), and Robert Moses (Jan); her seven grandchildren, Emily Cohn (Robert), Sally Bloom (Jeremy), Cathy McDonald, Peter, Ethan, Sara, and Jessica Moses; and great-grandchildren, Hannah, Molly, Thatcher, Walter, Benjamin, and Ewan. She was preceded in death by her brother, Jackson Wolff; and husband, Herbert Moses. A funeral service will be held at the Robert H. Wick/ Wisniewski Funeral Home, 2426 N. Reynolds Rd., at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 3. Burial service will immediately follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, followed by a luncheon. The family will also be receiving guests at the home of Steve and Debbe Skutch on Tuesday evening.
