Nora I. Blubaugh passed away Wednesday, April 26, 2017, at her home.
Nora was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Blubaugh; and grandson, Scotty Blubaugh.
Nora is survived by her two daughters, Terry Honess and fiance, Jimmy Mowll, and Tammy Rotruck; two granddaughters, Casandra Rotruck and Amanda Rotruck; one great-grandson, Jessy Harper; one brother, Phil Shipley and family, Lisa Weisenmiller, who was just like a daughter; and a dear friend, Mike D'Atri and family, whom Nora dearly loved.
Nora had so many friends that she loved so dearly that she met and worked with throughout her long career as a chef at The Bistro, Oscar's, and When Pigs Fly; she loved them with all of her heart.
The last 40 days I got to spend with my mother was so precious, I will hold those memories in my heart forever and the 54 years we spent together for an eternity.
"Memories of the Heart"
A warm summer night with fireflies in flight.
The bright moon shinning on fresh fallen snow.
A soft flutter on your cheek when no one is near, perhaps it's an angel's kiss.
All the colorful flowers she loved so much, that blooms in my garden.
Beautiful butterflies flying in the warm afternoon light.
Rainbows shinning through the afternoon showers.
The sound of laughter in the air of something I said.
The soft touch of warm fuzzy kittens.
The distant laughter of children at play.
The feeling of a presence that in my heart I know, it can be no other, it's my mother.
To Mom: If flowers grew in heaven Lord, then pick a bunch for me. Then place them in mom's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her that I love and miss her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her in your arms. I love you my Mama, Sunshine I love you with all my heart.
Cards and condolences may be sent to Terry Blubaugh Honess, 37624 West Shady Drive, Selbyville, DE 19975.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
