Norma Lenkowsky served as Women’s Club president

Norma Lenkowsky

Norma Lenkowsky died on Dec. 2 after a short illness. She was 96 years old. She and her husband, Joe, moved from New Jersey to Costa Rica in the mid 1970s. They lived in Cariari and Ciudad Colón.

After Joe passed away, Norma moved to Santa Ana. She joined the Women’s Club of Costa Rica in 1976 and was a strong believer in the charity work of the club, helping Costa Ricans in need. She held many positions on committees and on the board of directors. She was president in 1984 and 1985.

She never stopped contributing to the club. In the last few years, she was the elegantly dressed, smiling lady welcoming
everyone to club meetings, lunches, and fundraising events. She will be missed.

She is survived by a daughter, son-in-law and several grand and great-grandchildren. There will be a memorial service in early 2011.
