Norma was a wonderful cook and enjoyed feeding her family and friends.  She also enjoyed spending time with her friends but most of all was a devoted mother who took great pride in her children.

Filkorn and his wife, Rebecca of Bolivar; two daughters, Beth Ann Filkorn of Escondido, California and Roberta Lou Filkorn and her husband, Joe Mellen of Lompoc, California; a grandchild, Ronni Williams of Escondido, California as well as her brother, Richard Tabak and his wife, Ann of Austintown, Ohio.

In keeping with Norma’s wishes, cremation will take place through the care of the Geib Funeral Center at Dover.  A graveside service will be held Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at 12:30 PM in the All Souls Cemetery Chapel at Cortland, Ohio with Father Bernard Schmalzried officiating.

Knowing Robbie for years I was so excited when I met Norma for the first time last year. Robbie and Norma were taking an epic California road trip and they stopped by my house. Norma was everything wonderful that I expected and more. I know she will be missed by everyone who has ever met her and lives on through her wonderful children ( Robbie, Jim and Beth) and Rebecca, Joe and Ronnie. Fondly - Elizabeth

What I always admired about Norma, is that she was always so kind, yet genuine. I had the pleasure of spending time with Norma as her daughter Beth and I are best friends. Though the world lost a great lady, heaven gained an angel. My condolences to your family.

She had an immense love for the people in her charge at the County Home.She was truly a exquisite Lady ,with a brilliant mind, always immaculate in her appearance,she had an immense appetite for chocolate,unyielding in her in her in her beliefs. She truly had a precious soul. And my husband & I were blessed to have known her. Rest in peace dear friend.
