Norma Mulligan

Obituary of Norma Joan Mulligan

Norma J Hansen Mulligan passed away peacefully Sunday July 3, 2022 in her own home with family and friends at her bedside.

Norma was born August 1, 1940 to Margaret and Ray Hansen in Oakland, CA. Norma spent her formative years in California, graduating from Oakland High School.  She spent most of her career as a medical transcriptionist in the state of California. On May 1, 1965 Norma married the love of her life Frank Mulligan, in Berkeley, CA. In 2002 Frank and Norma moved to Wilsonville, Oregon. Sadly, Frank lost his battle to cancer in 2006

Norma was an avid gardener and enjoyed 18 years with her cats Sugar and Spice, who were sisters. Norma joined the Catholic Church on March 22, 2008 and quickly immersed herself into the ministries at St. Cyril Catholic Church, eventually becoming the Sacristan.  This role included coordinating many aspects of the Masses and supporting the liturgical sacredness of our faith.

Norma was preceded in death by her beloved Frank and her cherished cats. Norma is survived by her very close friends Mary & Jerry Tillery, stepdaughter Marie (John) Crescenzo, grandchildren Nicholas & Katharine, niece Joan (Tom) Hampton, great niece Lisa Hampton, nephews Mike (Pat) and Dan (Donna) Mulligan, as well as numerous close friends.

A funeral mass will be held Saturday July 9, 2022 at 11:00am at St. Cyril Catholic Church in Wilsonville, OR. Interment will be alongside Frank at The Church of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Cemetery in Freehold, NJ
