Burial in St. Lawrence Cemetery, town of Cape Vincent will be at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are entrusted with Cummings Funeral Service, Inc., Watertown.

Norma was born in Watertown on March 13, 1934, daughter of Charles and Ethel Cooper Swaffer. She was a graduate of both Watertown High School and Watertown School of Commerce. A marriage to Stennett R. Green ended in divorce. She married George S. "Swampy" Marsh in 1971 and he passed in 1995.

She had worked for a time for Agricultural Insurance Co. and for ten years for Jefferson County Children's Welfare Division. Norma had attended both Bethany United Methodist Church and Life Church of the Nazarene, where she enjoyed arranging and volunteering for dinners at the churches. She also enjoyed helping any family in need, especially fire victims.

She is survived by her son and his wife, Stennett R. and Victoria Green, Jr., Ballston Lake, two grandchildren, Grace and Gregory Green, and "her Jenny", Jennifer Gouveia, NH. Her stepson, George C. Marsh, died before her.

Donations in her name may be made to either Hospice of Jefferson County, 1398 Gotham St., Watertown, NY 13601 or Community Hospice of Saratoga County, 179 Lawrence St., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. Online condolences to her family may be made at www.cummingsfuneral.com.

I was glad to get to know and visit Norma Jean, my second cousin, and to take my parents to Watertown to meet her on two occasions in the 1990's. She and George, then she and Stennett, enabled us to visit the graves of many Parkhurst ancestors. Her mother had compiled an extensive family genealogy which we all appreciate. She was so proud of being a grandma to those beautiful children. Love and condolences, Amy and Bob in Sarasota, Florida

Stennett I was so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. My Mom (Carol Pete) wanted me to be sure to extend her sympathies also. Your Mom sure gave us a lot of laughs over the years. I can still hear her joking around when she would come to visit Grandma Seymour. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Stennett and family, I was so sorry to hear that your sweet mother died. She was a special person and one who I will remember fondly. She was sure a dog lover as she spoiled my Buffy. Prayers are being sent your way during this difficult time. Hugs from Georgia. Ann, Greg and Emily Chapman
