BRUNSWICK — Norma Desrosiers, 76, of Bath, formerly of Lisbon Falls, died Sunday, March 26, at Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick surrounded by her family. Norma was born in Lisbon Falls on Feb. 18, 1941, daughter of Fred and Elaine Fournier.

Norma was married to Gonzaque “Brud” Desrosiers on Feb. 4, 1958, and they were happily married for 54 years until Brud’s death July 13, 2012. Together they raised four children Jeffrey, Julie, James and Jon at the family home on Avery Street in Lisbon Falls.

In 1996 they sold the family home and moved to Sanford, Fla., where they totally enjoyed splitting their time between Florida and their camp on Pleasant Pond in The Forks. They explored the East Coast of the United States during their trips between Maine and Florida, always making the trip an adventure. They also made numerous trips to Nevada and Arizona as well as the beaches of Aruba, but they were always the happiest at their little camp on Pleasant Pond in The Forks.

In January 2014, Norma became ill and resided at Winship Green nursing home in Bath, where she was cared for by the nurses and CNAs, many of whom became her friends during her time there. Even though ill, she was always up for a road trip somewhere, which mostly consisted of Margaret and Jeff’s, Jason and Crystal’s, Lindsay and Luke’s or Carol and Skip’s for dinner with her grandkids, great-grandkids and friends, where she made us all laugh with her sense of humor.

Norma is survived by her children, son Jeffrey and partner Margaret Murphy, daughter Julie Harvie, son Jon Desrosiers and grandchildren Jason Desrosiers and partner Crystal Smith, Lindsay Larochelle and husband Luke, Shannon Desrosiers, Justin Desrosiers, Zac Harvie and his wife Heather and Devon Harvie.

Norma was predeceased by her parents, her husband, Brud, her brother Gerald and her son James.

A celebration of life is planned for Norma at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday April 2, at the Slovak Catholic Association on 26 Avery St. in Lisbon Falls. Those who wish may leave a note of condolence for the family at
