Norma DeRobinson was born on October 18, 1930 to Roberto and Emelina Nelson, in Almirante, in the Province of Bocas Del Toro, Panamá. She was the youngest of her parents’ seven children.
Norma completed her elementary Studies in Almirante. She migrated to the United States in 1964 and settled in Cambridge, MA where she worked as a domestic cleaner for attorneys and doctors. Norma later began her career at TRW, manufacturing parts for the automotive and aerospace industries until she retired.
Norma attended St. Paul AME church where she enjoyed sitting in the back listening to the choir and the preacher. She also loved spending time with her family and friends, most visited her with a host of goodies per her request, including groceries and candies (always something sweet!). She will be remembered for always wanting a “cup of tea”...no matter what time of day, she would be warming one up.
Norma is survived by her two children, Louis Robinson and Gloria Barrett. Her seven grandchildren, Roberto, Edgardo, Zunilka, Xenia, Luis, Shantall & Eric; eight great-grandchildren, Daniel, Kenia, Justin, Kayla, Kiara, Cassandra, Yetziel & Louis, and a host of family and friends.
