Norma Leckburg 89, of Cape May, went home to join her husband, Bob and son, Bobby, on June 9, 2024, at Cape Regional Medical Center with her sister, Judy and nephew, Kevin by her side.
Norma was born in Underwood Hospital, Woodbury, NJ, where she lived with her parents until 1945. Her parents, Walter “Dick” and Mary McClyment purchased a store where Town Bank Road meets the bay, known as “Dick’s Place.”
Norma enjoyed spending time with family. She loved dogs and especially Snoopy, her miniature poodle. A proud graduate of Cape May High School’s class of 1953, she carried the lessons and friendships from those formative years throughout her entire life.
Norma’s journey was one of love and companionship, as she found her partner in life, Robert “Bob” Leckburg, while he was serving his country in the United States Coast Guard. In October 1958 their only child Bobby joined their family. Then on December 21, 1988, not only the worst day of Norma’s life, but the last day of her life. Bobby was a passenger on Pan Am 103 that exploded after a terrorist bomb was detonated over Lockerbie, Scotland killing all 259 people onboard and killing 11 individuals on the ground.
Norma is dearly missed and forever loved by her family which includes her sister, Judith Beare; nephews, Richard (Cynthia) Beare, Kevin Beare, Richard (Rosa) Beare, Gabiela and Isabella Beare, Thomas and Jennifer Hunt, Kayla Hunt and Robert Beare.
