Ann Carol Conner “Mama” Norcross, 84, passed away peacefully at her Cherry Hill home Saturday morning, May 7th, after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Avery Conner and Jonnie Tipton, and her beloved husband, George E. Norcross, Jr.
Raised and educated in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, she met her husband while he was there leading a labor organizational drive. They were then married and raised their four sons in Pennsauken, New Jersey. Leaving part of her heart in the Smokies, she returned often and lived part-time for eight years after her husband’s passing.
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.
Carol was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and avid bridge player who will be remembered and missed dearly by her family and many friends.
Relatives and friends are invited Tuesday, May 10th beginning 8:30 AM to Haddonfield United Methodist Church, 29 Warwick Road, Haddonfield, NJ 08033, where funeral services will begin promptly at 11 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.
