Eason, Norma

Feb. 1, 1929 — March 27, 2013
Norma Jeanne Moser Eason: Born Feb. 1, 1929 in San Francisco, the only child of Lloyd and Ethel Abt Moser. She attended Pacific Heights Grammar School and graduated from Lowell High School, the oldest high school west of the Mississippi and known for its academic excellence. Norma graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelor’s in speech and earned her teaching credential. When interviewing for a teaching position in Richmond, the interviewer asked Norma what her least favorite classes were. She answered, “The education classes!” The interviewer told her it was the first honest answer he had ever received to that question.
While pursuing a master’s degree in guidance and testing at Stanford, Norma met Ed Eason in 1958. Two years later a judge in San Francisco married them, and the wedding party went to the Cliff House for lunch. Once Norma finished her teaching semester, she and Ed had a proper wedding reception at the Claremont Hotel, including a replacement wedding ceremony, and honeymooned at the Highlands Inn in Carmel.
In 1965 Norma and Ed welcomed their beloved daughter, Pamela. Norma took a hiatus from teaching for about five years. They moved to Tucson, Ariz. (in Norma’s words, “for two years, one month and 12 days”), and then returned to Cupertino where both sets of grandparents resided. Norma enjoyed a long career teaching and counseling in the South Bay Area. She especially loved being a counselor.
In 2000 Ed and Norma moved to Davis to be near their daughter Pam, her husband Tom Cordano and their beloved granddaughters, Lauren and Sarah. No conversation with Norma was complete without her talking about what treasures those two girls were.
Norma was active and engaged wherever she went. She was a real “people person.” She and Ed loved introducing friends to the joys of drinking the Manhattans that Ed ceremoniously made every evening until his death late last year. Norma was a past member of the AAUW and an active member of University Farm Circle. She firmly believed in the importance of education and asked that any donations in her memory be made to the UFC Scholarship Fund – www.ufcdavis.org. Norma died March 27. She is missed.
