Fort Wright - Norma Ann (née Theissen) Broering, died peacefully on August 25, 2020, age 85. She was born September 5, 1934 to the late John and Elsie Theissen, the seventh of nine children. Norma graduated from LaSalette Academy in 1952 and from St. Elizabeth School of Nursing in 1955 as a Registered Nurse. She worked at St. Elizabeth Hospital and then Mayfield Neurosurgery Clinic until she married Leo in 1962, and returned to nursing in the late 1970’s at Bethesda Hospital in the Hospice and Mother/Baby units until her retirement.
