Norma D. Boyte

Date of Death

Born in El Monte, California, to Herbert and Grace Vause, Norma grew up and remained a resident in the Burbank/Glendale Rio Rancho District where she attended Herbert Hoover High School, worked, and raised her two daughters (along with countless rescued animals).
As an expert of technical soldering she held several positions in manufacturing/assembly of aerospace and communications circuit boards at International Telephone and Telegraph (ITT) and Janco (respectively), as well as finely handcrafted designer jewelry at Joseff of Hollywood.
After her official retirement, Norma enjoyed life in the equestrian community as a resident caretaker to many rescued animals. She also kept busy working part time at Pickwick Family Entertainment Center in the ice skating arena snack lounge where she warmed hearts as well as tummies with hot cocoa and friendly smiles! She found joy biking around town, visiting with her many friends and acquaintances, collecting recyclables along the way wherever she went. She expressed her love of country and folk music as well as her talent for playing guitar with a continual stream of pleasant tunes filling her clean and happy home on any given day.
Norma lived connected to the divine through her love of nature and simple principles that she believed aided one in a wholesome and peaceful existence here on Earth while serving others and the greater good. Her loving relationships with people and animals will live on as an integral part of God’s Plan.
Norma is survived by her daughter, Carey Gunn; her three grandchildren, Corey Miller, Nigel Gunn and Aspen Fox; and her two great-grandchildren, Zakai and Keirra Miller. She leaves behind her beloved dog, Nikki, lovely cat, Lola, and recently adopted orphaned dogs, Ranger and Pebblina (all of the pets are currently in her daughter’s and granddaughter’s care).
Memorial services will be held in Burbank, California, on July 13. A specific time and venue yet to be determined.
