Norma was married to her beloved husband, Arnold Del Pilar Sr. for over 65 wonderful years. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She always put everyone's needs before her own, always ensuring her children had the best she was able to provide. She was her children's biggest supporter and was always there for them.
