Norma Sarah Yowler

December 11, 1969 ~ April 07, 2021

Norma Sarah Yowler, of Port Orange, FL., passed away on Wednesday, April 7, 2021. She was born on December 11, 1969 on the U.S. Army Base in Giessen, Germany. She moved to Orlando in 1979 and graduated from Apopka High School in 1988.

In 1998 Norma suffered a complete loss of her vision and relocated to Daytona Beach to attend rehabilitative services at the Center for the Visually Impaired. It was there she met the love of her life, Patrick Foley. She gave birth to their son Colton in 2001. Sadly, he passed away after a few months without ever leaving the hospital.

Preceded in death by infant son Colton Sean Foley, parents John Sr. & Doris (George) Yowler. Survived by her partner, Patrick Foley, brother John Yowler, Jr. (Jayne) of Orlando, and nephew Andrew Yowler of Palm Harbor, FL.

Norma was unfailingly kind, generous and had a sharp sense of humor. In spite of the devastating effects of her diabetes these past 2 decades, and the loss of her infant son, she managed to always be optimistic and cheerful.

She will be greatly missed by her family and the many friends she leaves behind. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date in Port Orange.

Norma was my favorite client. I have been driving Norma to her dialysis for the past 10 1/2 years. Norma was not just my client she was my friend she was always up beat no matter what was going on. Norma was the kindest and sweetest person I ever met. I will miss you forever and you’ll always be in my heart. Until we meet again I love you Norma.

An angel from heaven God’s gift and the love of my son Patrick’s life…truly a special woman. Norma and son Colton I am assured are rejoicing in heaven…together with Jesus!

Norma was my best friend since we met in 7th grade at Lockhart Jr High School. We have so many memories together that I will forever cherish. I have never met anyone else like her. She has been someone I have always admired her. She has lived through some of the worse tragedies that a person could ever encounter in their lifetime, more than she should have had to deal with, but through it all she kept her sweet spirit. I never heard her complain about what life sent her way, instead she always had encouraging words to say. But she had a spunky side of her too but she hid it well (smile). She never forgot mine, my parents, my children or grandbaby’s birthday or a holiday. She absolutely amazed me! My heart is broken and will never be the same without her here. I know, along with my sweet daddy, she will be my guardian angel. Norma was truly an angel on this earth. Now she has her wings. Fly high, my best friend. I will never forget you. I love you always and forever.
