Norma McSweeney

July 29, 1935 — June 13, 2023

 

Mrs. Norma Faye McSweeney, affectionately known as “Nanny”, went to be with Jesus on Tuesday, June 13th, 2023.  The family will receive friends at Jefferson Memorial in Trussville, Alabama on Saturday, June 17th from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM.  The funeral service will begin at 2:00 P.M.  A graveside service will follow at Jefferson Memorial’s adjoining gardens.  A gathering will follow at Faith Community Fellowship located at 7660 Gadsden Hwy, Trussville, AL 35173.  She is survived by her son, Rod McSweeney and spouse Robin; her daughter, Charlotte McSweeney; daughter in-law, Terri Atkinson and spouse Wayne, and Beth McSweeney; sisters, Vicky Johnson and Linda Brewer, grandchildren, Matt McSweeney, and spouse Susie, Michael McSweeney and spouse Bradi, Stacy Esco and spouse Brandon, Stephanie Wilkerson and spouse Tyler, Cara Kush and spouse David, Cory Conner and spouse Amber, Angela Groner and spouse Jack, Leah Dennis, Daly Green and spouse Derek; great grandchildren, Moriah McSweeney, Miriam McSweeney, Marek McSweeney, Christian McSweeney, John Reagan McSweeney, Garrett Wooten, Alyssa Wooten, Addi Esco, Caroline Esco, Lily Esco, Maverick Wilkerson, Ellie Rae Wilkerson, Jack Ramsey Groner, Vivi Groner, Owen Dennis, Hollis Green, Locklyn Green, Sutton Green, Emma Kush, Hannah Kush, and Declan Conner. She enjoyed having lunches with the Birthday Club, cooking for her family and serving at her church.  She was a member of Faith Community Fellowship in Trussville, Alabama.  One of her greatest career accomplishments was serving as Administrator of Cardiovascular Research Center, serving Dr. Hefner, Dr. Plumb and Dr. Kirkland.  After retiring from UAB she became caretaker for her husband, John.  He had Parkinson’s disease for the last 8 years of his life.  She was an amazing wife and she did it with such tenderness, passion, and grace.  After John passed, she served in different capacities in her community.  Always willing to help in any way she was able to.  The last 7 years of her life Norma suffered from dementia and as always, she became the most loved resident at Fair Haven Community Home in Birmingham, AL.  Everyone loved her so much because she shined with love and light and people wanted to be close to her.  She was always known for her “hard” hugs!  She was the “best ever”.  To say she was one of the greatest examples of a “Christ Like” character is an understatement.  She lived to love you.  She is now healed and she will be very missed by her family and friends.  She made a difference in the lives of so many people.  Thank you, Jesus, for her life.
