Norma was born on November 6, 1948 at Tacoma General Hospital to Frank & Francis (Franchini) Annas. She grew up in the Orting area and attended school in the Orting School District. Norma was a hardworking homemaker and dedicated, loving mother to her two daughters Cindy and Stacey. She was a devoted and loving grandmother to her five grandchildren. She was proud of her family and loved the chance to spend time with them any chance she could. Norma was a talented sewer and loved sitting outside in the sun. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
Norma is survived by her daughters Cindy (John) Wright East Wenatchee and Stacey (Herbie) Legas of Edgewood; grandchildren Ashley Wright, James Legas, Brad Wright, Sarah Wright, and Gabrielle Wright. She is also survived by her sisters Faith Irish of Enumclaw, Vicki Dummer of Oregon, Illinois, Pam Neil of Buckley, and Patti Usack of Kent. Norma was preceded in death by her parents and by her sister Barbara Griebe-Annas and brother Larry Dean Annas.
