Norma B. Ocampo

September 26, 1932 ~ February 27, 2023 (age 90) 90 Years Old


Norma passed away at home while in the loving arms of her husband of nearly 68 years, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s Dementia.  Her prayer was that God would take her first and her prayer was answered by our Merciful Savior in Heaven.  Norma is survived by her loving husband, Armando Valdes Ocampo (Korean War - PFC U.S. Army Combat Veteran, 2nd Division, 38th Infantry), and her beloved children, Gregory James Ocampo, DDS (and his wife, Candyce), Michael Armando Ocampo, DDS, David Anthony Ocampo, JD/MBA, and Robert Francis Ocampo, DPM (and his wife, Tracy).  She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren, Matthew, Michael, Mitchell, Amanda, Alyssa, and Nicholas.  Norma is survived by her two sisters, Johanna Bommarito and Maria Dell’Olio.  Norma was a selfless woman who showered her husband and children with her deep and unmitigated love and generosity.  Norma was a hard-working, and intelligent woman.  She was a gourmet cook, a beautiful home decorator and a wonderful party giver. Born in Hollis, New York to a traditional Italian family, she started as a fashion model in New York and then worked for an advertising agency where she became assistant director. In the early 1950’s, she settled in Santa Clara California along with her parents, James Dell’Olio (1910-2002) and Lena Dell’Olio (1911-2003), where she later met her husband to be. Norma and Armando married in 1955. Norma began working in Campbell during her newlywed years and then started raising her children who were born through the late 1950’s to the late 1960’s.  Norma operated a successful home-based business, A & N Terrarium Tool Company, in the mid-1970’s through early 1980’s, and later in the mid-1980’s she worked as a secretary at Santa Clara University, School of Business.  In the early 1990’s she began a very successful career as a Real Estate Agent in the Almaden Valley, which lasted 30 years, and was recognized as a top 50 real estate producer in the United States. She retired in the mid-2000’s as the horror of dementia began to rob her sharp mind, colorful personality, and energetic persona that had once made Norma an amazing woman. Norma only wanted the best for her family and she left this earth achieving that goal.  She is so dearly missed by her family.  May God bless Norma and may she rest in peace, forever.  A private memorial service and reception will be held at a later date.  Donations to the Alzheimer’s Association are appreciated.
