Norma “Toddy” Rozelle-Diers passed away on December 16, 2020. She was 105 years old. Norma was born on October 10, 1915, in Toronto, Canada to Robert and Gertrude (Sampson) Todd. On June 11, 1935, she was united in marriage to Robert B. Rozelle who passed away in 1983. She was then united in marriage on September 11, 1993, to Casey Diers who passed in 2005.
Norma is survived by a son and a daughter, Todd (Janet) Rozelle and Jacqueline (Edward) Fritz, all of Delphos; five grandchildren, James “JP” (Patty) Fritz, Eric (Gina) Fritz, Andrea (Doug) Duerr, Melissa (Christopher) Ellison, and Jacquie (Matt) Kill; two step-children Susan Dallas and Robert Diers; 11 great-grandchildren, and seven great-great grandchildren.
She was also preceded in death by a son, Stanley Rozelle; and two brothers Dr. Don (Nellie) Todd and Paul (Thelma) Todd.
Norma was a 75+ year member of Trinity United Methodist Church. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star Chapter #26, where she was a past matron and aide to the Grand Organist. She was also a member of the United Methodist Church Women’s group, the choir, and the Altar Guild. She was a Welcome Wagon hostess for seven years. Norma was on the PTA for Delphos City Schools for 25 years and volunteered at Franklin Elementary for 19 years. She was especially known for running the PTO Variety show at Jefferson School. Anyone from the 50’s would remember her from this. She was producer and director making sure every child had the costumes they needed. She loved all the kids and loved giving them stage presence. She was also a Girl Scout leader for 12 years, and worked at the Allen County Election Board as a poll worker for over 30 years. She loved to swim, was always reading, and belonged to many bridge clubs. So while we say Norma was a “homemaker,” she gave of her time freely volunteering to help others. Having lived over 100 years, Norma was known for her entertaining stories and her laugh. She was always happy. Her vitality and love of others kept her young at heart. She will be greatly missed by many. The family would like to thank all her wonderful caregivers at Vancrest.
Private services will be held at a later date.
