It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Anne Carol Conner “Mama” Norcross, the mother of our IBEW 351 brother, Congressman Donald Norcross. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Norcross family during this difficult time.
Raised and educated in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, she met her husband, George E. Norcross, Jr., while he was there leading a labor organizational drive. George was a distinguished labor leader for many years and the President of the Camden Central Labor Council. They were then married and raised their four sons in Pennsauken, New Jersey.
She was a champion for the elderly and worked for years at the Camden County Senior Citizens Center. In recognition of those efforts, the center was named in her honor. She was also a faithful member of the Haddonfield United Methodist Church, and a member of the Mary Blount Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Relatives and friends are invited to pay their respects on Tuesday, May 10th beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Haddonfield United Methodist Church, 29 Warwick Road, Haddonfield, NJ 08033, where funeral services will begin promptly at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial gifts be made to The Cooper Foundation/ MD Anderson Cancer Center, 200 Federal Street, Suite 146, Camden, NJ 08103.
