Norma Linda Surosky (nee Galler), of Pikesville, MD, passed away on Sunday, February 14, 2021 at the age of 92. She is survived by her children, Roger (Marsha) Himelfarb, Sheldon Himelfarb (Deirdre Saunder), Suzie Galler (nee Himelfarb) (Richard Erickson), Michael (late Trina) Himelfarb and Adam (P.J.) Himelfarb; step-children, Bruce (Betsy) Surosky and Jody (Carl) Steinwinter; brother, Ronald (Frada) Galler; grandchildren, Melissa Surosky-Bechtel (Jesse Bechtel), Sara Surosky-Blauvett (Andrew Blauvett), Abigail Surosky (Brian) McGurgan, Danielle Himelfarb, Madeline Himelfarb, Alixandra West, Gabriel West, Jay Weixelbaum (Sarah Gilchrist), Teghan Himelfarb, Rhiannon Himelfarb, Stephen Aaron Himelfarb, Stephanie Himelfarb, Logan Erickson and Connor Erickson; great-grandchildren, Mackenzie, Nate and Lucas Blauvett, Ava Bechtel, Thomas McGurgan, Ava Sutton, Alejandro Ochoa and Elena Ochoa. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Theodore Surosky; brother, Sidney Galler and parents, Samuel and Ann Galler.

A devoted mother and wife, Norma always put family above all. Strong, creative, resourceful beyond measure, she sought fun and new adventures anywhere she could find them, determined to live life to its fullest. Hosting big family gatherings was one of her greatest joys--the bigger and noisier, the better.
Always curious, Norma was a world traveler who was passionate about the arts and culture. She was a lifelong learner and took classes in a multitude of subjects throughout her adult life, even becoming a Bat Mitzvah in her 70’s. Her strong spirit and good humor helped her through the toughest of times and were a blessing to all who knew her. She will be missed more than words can say.

A Virtual Funeral will be held on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021 at 9:30 am. Interment Baltimore Hebrew Cemetery - Berrymans Lane. Please omit flowers. Contributions in her memory may be directed to the Alzheimer's Association of Maryland, 1850 York Road, Suite D, Timonium, MD 21093.

Judith and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Norma's family. It was one of the true joys of my life that I was able to visit her and Ted at home a few years ago, and introduce them to my wife Judith. Norma's kindness in warmly welcoming me to stay with the Himelfarb family in 1980, has remained with me these past forty years. I was on my very first visit to the United States and meeting the amazing Himelfarbs was pure joy. It was made possible by becoming firm friends with Sheldon and Deidre at college in England. I am so proud to have that link with the Himelfarbs through being being a godfather to Norma's granddaughter, Danielle. God Bless you Norma, I'll never forget you.

Sincere condolences on the loss of Norma. I found her an inspiration in life and the love she found in her husband and Judaism. The bond our adult Bat Mitzvah class found in each other are memories of a lifetime.
