Tombstone Tuesday - 3 August 2010 - Norma Mayer Strazewski
Norma E. Mayer Strazewski (AKA Strauss) was my 2nd cousin. Her mother was Edith Dallman Mayer (who, interestingly, married two different men, both named "Mayer," making it so her two children, one by each man, able to go through their childhood years with the same surname despite having different fathers.) Norma was the daughter of the first of those men, Ray Mayer. Norma was born 20 January 1926 in Illinois and died 28 July 1993, same state. Norma and her daughter, Elaine, attended the reception following my marriage to my first husband. Elaine is also now gone. Both are buried in Arlington Cemetery, DuPage County, Illinois. Because of the miracle of blogging and Facebook, I am now in contact with Elaine's son, my 2nd cousin, twice removed.
