Norma Spielberg Gorosh, 92, of West Bloomfield died peacefully on June 7, surrounded by her five sons and three daughters-in-law. She was the beloved Grandma Norma of eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Larry and her parents Julius and Anna Spielberg.
Norma was well known for her impeccable sense of style, her love of classical music, and her devotion to her family and friends. She graduated from Central High School at 16 and Wayne State University at the age of 20, where she played violin in the University Orchestra. She met the love of her life, Larry Gorosh, after he returned from his World War II service, and they were married on April Fools Day, 1951. After honeymooning in Havana Cuba, Norma taught at McKerrow Elementary School until having five sons in 5 1/2 years. She instilled in her sons her work ethic and pursuit of academic excellence, ultimately drawing a Jewish mother’s “full house” – three lawyers and two doctors. She struck gold with her three daughters-in-law, whom she loved as her own.
Norma was proud of her college summer spent as a decoder with the Office of Strategic Services, now known as the CIA, in Washington DC, during World War II. She had a lifetime love of the arts, fondly recalling spending her college lunchtimes with her girlfriends in the Diego Rivera Court at The Detroit Institute of Arts.
Norma’s grandchildren, Loren (Nathalia), Alex (Marisa), Kasie (Nathan), Hilary (fiancé Eli), Jamie, Rachel, Sean and Hannah were her pride and joy as were her great-grandchildren Rowe and Emmett. Norma was also survived by her children Alan (Rhona), Neil (Marla), Jeff, Rick, and Bruce (Tammy).
