CARNAHAN, Norma Jean Born April 13, 1925 in Urbana, Ill. passed away peacefully January 10, 2016 in Lancaster, Calif. Norma came to live in the Antelope Valley with her husband in the late 1950s. Gerald 'Jerry' Carnahan Sr. worked at Rockwell/Boeing in Palmdale until 1989.

Norma was blessed with 13 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and 15 great-great-grandchildren. She was also loved by her niece Rebecca Bosquez, Diana Meyer and many other extended family members.

Norma was a 36 year member of Women of the Moose and she was a Gold Circle Member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW both here in the Antelope Valley. Norma and Jerry were members of the Palmdale Camper Club for many, many years. Her fondest recent memory was having many friends and family members gather at her 90th birthday party last April. She was often comforted in her later years by the verse from Philippians 4:13, 'I can do all things because Christ gives me the strength.' She enjoyed this so much because 4/13 was her birthday.
