Mourre 2

In Loving Memory

Mourre, Norma (nee Marmol)

April 12, 1930 - December 24, 2023

Norma Mourre, our beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, and sister fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, passed away on Sunday, Christmas Eve, December 24, 2023.

Beloved wife of the late Leonardo R. Mourre for over 70 years; loving mother of Isabel (the late Jorge) Brandon and Norma (Neil) Cantwell; caring grandmother of Colin Cantwell, Michelle Cantwell and Josh Brandon; adored sister and aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Norma was born in Vinces, Ecuador on April 12th, 1930. She married Leonardo Mourre in Ecuador and they had two daughters before they made the life-changing decision to emigrate to the United States in 1962.

Norma held various jobs before settling into a 25 year long banking career, which was a testament to her sense of responsibility and hard work.

Her top priority was the home which she made into a warm gathering place where friends and family were always welcome. It was here that she showcased her loving attention to her family, preparing Sunday dinners and summer BBQs that brought everyone together. This dedication extended beyond these gatherings. As a mother, she was deeply committed to her two daughters, serving not only as their parent but also as their advocate and guide. As a grandmother, she was a constant source of love and support in her grandchildren’s lives.

As a devout Catholic, she always remembered and prayed for everyone in her life.

Visitation will be at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church,  5801 Pernod Ave. 63139, on Thursday, December 28 from 9:00 am until the Funeral Mass at 10:00 am. Norma will be laid to rest at Resurrection Cemetery.

  1. Our next door neighbors for the last 12 years, Norma and Leonardo and their wonderful family became great friends to both of us. Their home was always a place of welcome, with family members in and out all day exchanging laughter and hugs. Even the teenagers came to family dinner every Sunday. Norma was attuned to news around the world and we waited together for the Vatican to announce the election of Pope Francis and for the marriage of Prince William to Kate. The family’s devotion to the Church was authentic and pure. Knowing little English on arrival, Norma took classes and parlayed a clerical job in banking into a 25 year career as a loan officer. Their rose garden was the pride of the neighborhood. Her kids and grandkids were her world. She leaves to her dedicated and adoring daughters a legacy of personal strength,
    positivity, and an indestructible family bond. Andy and I will be ever-grateful for the privilege of being their friends

    • Dear Lin and Andy, We appreciate your support and kind thoughts. You are the best neighbors. You were always there to help with Mom and Dad.
      We appreciate your love, kindness and friendship.

  2. My dear aunt Norma,
    My heart aches to see you go. But your joyful, grateful and caring spirit will never go. You gave me love and advice. You helped me through while achieving my education. You were always there for me. I know you loved me since I was born. Thanks my lovely aunt for giving me your life of great vibes and love.
    Knowing how much you loved Christmas Eve, God wanted you to celebrate it with Him. I know you are with Jesus now and that makes me happy, and brings me comfort, strength and hope.
    For my cousins and family, my deepest condolences. We may have lost a wonderful soul but we have gained an eternal angel.
    May God gives you comfort and strength 🙏
