Norma Maunz

Norma Virginia Maunz, 90, of Fairmont, passed from this life Tuesday (June 17, 2014) at the Pierpont Center at Fairmont Campus.

She was born Aug. 13, 1923, in Fairmont, daughter of the late Austin T. and Virginia (Cheirello) Maunz Sr.

She was employed as an accountant for the family-owned business (Maunz Men’s Store) in Fairmont, which was in operation for 70 years, and also at the Clarksburg and Middletown locations. She later retired from the Marion County Senior Center.

Norma was an active member of St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church, where she volunteered her time whenever she was needed, and served as a former treasurer of the Catholic Daughters of America. She enjoyed knitting, crocheting, quilting, refurbishing old furniture and traveling. Norma was known to those who knew her as a very selfless individual.

Miss Maunz is survived by her only living sibling, Nena Marie Maunz, formerly of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Fairmont for the past eight years. In that time, she has visited Norma every day. She is also survived by one brother-in-law, Nick Calabrase of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; one sister-in-law, Mary Jo Maunz; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by four brothers and three sisters-in-law, Emmanuel and Margaret Maunz, Albert and Betty Maunz, Austin and Theresa Maunz, and Eugene Maunz; one sister, Calaerene Calabrase; and one nephew, Austin Phillip Maunz.

Norma’s family would like to thank longtime friends of the Maunz family, Carole Sago and her daughter Natasha Anderson, for their continuous care and support; the Pierpont Center staff for taking care of her for the past eight years; and a special thank you to her day nurse, Ava Wilt Dean for always looking after her.

Family and friends may call at Domico Funeral Home, 414 Gaston Ave. in Fairmont, from 9-10:30 a.m. Thursday, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. at St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church. Interment will be at Holy Cross Cemetery in Fairmont.

Memorial donations may be made in Norma’s name to Hospice Care, 1406 Country Club Road, Fairmont, WV 26554.
