Norma Ann Vallad

Our kind, selfless and strong Angel Norma Vallad went to be with her Lord, and to be reunited with her son Justin Wednesday, morning July 27, 2022, with her loving family by her side until her last breath. She was born on May 12, 1958, to Bill & Theresa Lahar, as one of five siblings. She graduated from Pinconning High School in 1976. On May 3, 1980, she married the love of her life Fred Vallad at St. Michaels Catholic Church. Norma’s love for her entire family was like none other. She will always be known as our family’s “CEO”. Norma is what has kept us all together. Her quick wit, genuine care and love for God will never leave us. She lived by “Let your faith be bigger than your fear”. Those of us who knew Norma well, know that she was a devoted employee for 26 years at St. Michael’s School where she was the Administrative Assistant. Norma did everything for the school with a genuine open heart. She gave of herself freely and loved and cared for each child like they were her own. “Mrs. Vallad” as she was known, helped shape many hearts and minds. Her decorating skills can be viewed throughout the school. Holidays at St. Michaels were so special, as she didn’t miss a spot for a special tree, lighted photos, or artificial snow! Year around, each season was reflected by her creativity. Norma is survived by her loving husband of 42 years, Fred, they raised their family and made Standish their home. She is survived by her sons; Jarod, Josh (Ashley) and Jordan, a daughter-in-law Amy Vallad, and the lights of her life whom were her grandchildren Blake and Reagan Vallad, Ayla, Brielle and Caris Vallad all of whom she adored with her whole heart. She is also survived by her mother Theresa Lahar, her brothers, Bob (Lori) Lahar, Ed, Jim (Julie) Lahar, one sister Sandy (Mark) Grier, Sister-in-law Janet (Louie) Krol, and many nieces and nephews. Norma was predeceased by her loving son Justin, her father Bill Lahar and her mother and father-in-law Randall & Isabelle Vallad. Funeral Mass was held Saturday, July 30, 2022, at 11 am from Holy Trinity Parish with Rev. Fr. Matt Federico presiding with burial in St. Michael’s Cemetery. Friends visited at the church on Friday, from 1 to 8 pm. On Friday, a Prayer Vigil was held at 7 pm. On Saturday, friends visited at the church from 10 am until time of mass. In lieu of flowers those wishing an expression of sympathy are asked to consider the St. Michael’s School in Norma’s honor. Our lives will never be the same again, but we all hope to someday make the difference in our world that Norma did.
