Joan Norman, 90, of Ocean Grove passed away peacefully on Monday, October 21, 2019 at Manor by the Sea Care Center, Ocean Grove with her loving family by her side. Joan was born and raised in Paterson, NJ and graduated from Benedictine Academy, Paterson. After high school she attended Stephens College Columbia, MS for a year and then University of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, VA for another year before taking a hiatus to raise her family.

Once she was able to return to college, Joan went to Monmouth College, West Long Branch where she graduated in 1970. While attending Monmouth College Joan worked for MCAP. Upon her graduation, Joan began her 31-year career working for Monmouth County Board of Social Services. She retired in 2001 and devoted the rest of her life to creating happy memories with family and friends. She will be remembered most for her genuine kindness and empathy for others.

Joan was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Margaret Cuddeback; her two brothers Thomas and Jay Cuddeback. She is survived by her loving two sons and a daughter-in-law (Robert Norman of Lake Como and James and Sheri Norman of Ocean Township). Joan is also survived by a beloved sister Mary Fenton of Wall and brother, Gordon of California, along with her cherished grandchildren Kellie Moore, Kaysie (and spouse Brian) McKay and Kyle Norman; three great grandchildren Braden and Kylie Moore and Clark McKay; her dear nieces Debbie Marchese, Gail Grozalis and Susan Mosser and nephew Ryan Fenton.

Joan saw beauty everywhere; she was an accomplished artist and a member of various local art associations. She loved to travel, especially to different lakes each summer with her extended family. She was a social butterfly with a group of treasured friends whom she adored. A lifelong beach-goer, Joan loved to sit at the boardwalk and watch the waves with Robert. Her favorite way to pass the day was by eating delicious meals at Sheri & JT’s or Mary & Steve’s houses. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were the light of her life.

Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial visitation on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 1-4 pm at Orender Family Home for Funerals 2643 Old Bridge Road Manasquan, NJ. Memorial service will begin at 3:15 pm here at funeral home.

Joan was the closest person I knew to having an aunt. I am very thankful for who she was in my life, and the wonderful friend she was to my mom all those years. I will miss you Aunt Joan. Love Craig

Hi Rob - This is Tom and Rosemary Richards from the old Christian Singles Group. We were sorry to hear about the passing of your mother Joan. Rosemary and I send our condolences to you and your family. We heard by reading the obit in the AP Press. That was a nice write-up and photo. She sounded like she was quite a lady. I could just see the two of you sitting on the boardwalk watching the waves together. I remember what it was like when I lost my mother and our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

I will always remember when she took me to the doctor and then went to Marshall's shopping and almost forgot me and we had a good time laughing. About. It. She was. a sweet and very caring person..
