November 5, 1925 — January 6, 2015

Norma C. Niederbuhl, 89, of Bloomingdale, passed away on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at the AMC Saranac Lake.

Born on November 5, 1925, Norma, a life-long resident of Bloomingdale, was the daughter of the late John and Mildred (Norman) Curran.

Norma earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics in 1946 from the College of Mount St. Vincent in New York City. She was subsequently offered a position at General Electric in Schenectady, NY, but returned to the Adirondacks and married Arthur F. Niederbuhl on July 5, 1948 in Bloomingdale.

Norman and carried on by her parents, husband Arthur and currently her son Art Niederbuhl. She was a substitute teacher at St. Pius X High School and taught Math at Saranac Lake High School.

Norma enjoyed many leisure activities including playing bridge, sewing, and creating bead jewellery. In later years, she became quite a skilled games-player on the computer.

Niederbuhl and wife Thelma of Bloomingdale, NY; Casey Miller and husband Kris of Markham, ON; David Niederbuhl and Robin Greene Sperling of Amherst, NY; Margaret Lynch and husband Joseph of North Andover, MA; twenty grandchildren, more than twenty great-grand children and daughter-in-law, Gretchen Reid.
