Norma Louise (Day) Von Holle

July 5, 1927 ~ September 30, 2021 (age 94)


Norma Louise (Day) Von Holle, born July 5, 1927 in Hamilton, Ohio to the late Aloysius and Frances Day, passed away peacefully on September 30, 2021.  Loving wife of the late Donald Joseph Von Holle, cherished mother of Donna (John) Arnold, Ted (Ann Marie) Von Holle,  Patrick Von Holle, Theresa (Dave) Winter, Bernadette (Danny) Maynard, Don (Kelly) Von Holle,  Ronnie (Vicky) Von Holle,  Mary (Bill) Stites, Kathleen (Ray) Carpenter, beloved grandmother of 23 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren, loving sister of Mary Conlin, Janet Wurzelbacher, the late Rita Heinrich, Paul Day, Margaret Hunter, Bernadine Day, and Erma Day.

Norma and Donald were married on August 18, 1951 at Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Millville, Ohio. Her family, and her faith, were the most important things in her life (besides the Cincinnati Reds).  She was an amazing cook and baker, winning ribbons for her infamous carrot cake. Such a good baker, on her 80th birthday, a cookbook of her recipes were made and an official book signing was held.  Norma was a proud member of St. Susanna Catholic Church where she was a part of the Women’s Association.  She will be missed by many dear friends and families.
