The Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce extends its sympathies to the family of Norma Skowronek, a former member of the board of directors. Norma passed away on March 18, 2020 in the company of her loved ones. She was a true local community person, growing up in Houston, attended Waltrip High School, and recently attended their 50-year reunion.

A distinguished banker during her business career, she made countless friends during her lifetime and gave willingly of her time to local professional and social organizations. After joining the Greater Heights Chamber, she served as a valued member of the board for 3 terms and served on numerous Chamber committees. She was the first female President of the Rotary Club of Houston Heights, and spent many hours volunteering at the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo where she served as a lifetime member of the Calf Scramble committee.

In 2010, she married Mike Skowronek, also a Chamber member who served as chairman, treasurer and interim president at several points during the Chamber’s history. Norma enjoyed many shared experiences with Mike including spending time at lake LBJ, solving every Wheel of Fortune puzzle and attending countless birthday parties, games, recitals and especially grandparents’ day.

Norma leaves an extended family and many friends including the many relationships she made as a Chamber executive and member. In closing, we chose a quote about Norma found on her Class website: “Norma touched so many lives. She had a gift for making every person she met feel at ease, and she never forgot a face.” She is gone, but never forgotten.”
