December 4, 1931 ~ June 12, 2016
Norma Ione Oliver
Longtime Torrance resident, Norma I. Oliver passed away on June 12, 2016. Born just outside of Scotia, Nebraska on December 4, 1931, Norma, relocated to California in the early 1950's. She worked for American Airlines for many years, where she met her husband (now deceased) Jerome Oliver whom she was married to for over 40 years. They raised two sons, Lloyd DeGonia, a retired Torrance Police Lieutenant, and Scott Oliver also a former City of Torrance employee and U.S. Marine.
She is also survived by her brother Jerry Dulitz, of Kearney Nebraska, and his spouse Nancy, and her daughter-in-laws Kristine DeGonia, and Sally Oliver. Norma was very proud of her two grandsons, Jarrod DeGonia a Deputy to L.A. County Board of Supervisor Mike Antonovich and spouse Ileen and Joshua DeGonia, a Deputy District Attorney in Murrieta and spouse Kimberly.
Norma is also survived by her three great grandchildren, Savannah, Kaelyn and Reese DeGonia, as well as surrogate grandchildren Richard and Robert Vivas and Jordana and Chase Williams.
Norma embraced life and her family and will be dearly missed. The family will hold a private ceremony at sea off Redondo Beach at Avenue I.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations sent to Providence Trinity Care Hospice at 5315 Torrance Blvd, Torrance, CA 90503, Attn. Jay Hess.
