Norma Jane Schlottman, 84

Norma Jane Schlottman of Woodstock, Ill., passed away at her home the morning of Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2020, after a long courageous battle with cancer.

Norma was born on Dec. 10, 1935, in Belvedere, Ill., to Henry and Mildred (Shepherd) Boettcher. She married Richard Schlottman in September of 1954 and shortly thereafter moved to Woodstock, where they raised their family. During her life she held multiple jobs but was most known for selling Avon door to door, working at Hornsby’s, and providing her seamstress skills for many of her friends. The hobbies she really enjoyed were playing cards, fishing, baking, and spending time with her family and friends.

Norma is survived by her husband of 66 years, Richard (Dick) Schlottman; her children, Brad (Cely) Schlottman, Pamela (Raul) Gonzales; her grandchildren, Antonio and Olivia; along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents and her beloved sister, Carol Buhl.

A celebration of life will be held at a time and date to be determined.

The family would like to thank Transitions Hospice and Brightstar Care for their support of Norma and her family during this difficult time.
