July 01, 1935 - February 15, 2024


Norma Jean Borroni, 88, of Koppel, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 15, 2024, at Good Samaritan Hospice, Heritage Valley – Beaver.

Born on July 1, 1935, in Koppel, she was the daughter of the late Peter and Sylvia Frontini.

Norma grew up in her favorite place, Koppel PA and stayed to fall in love with another Koppel/New Galilee boy Frank and raise a large family.  Norma graduated from Lincoln HS and worked at Mellon Bank in BF. Norma continued to stay friends with her HS class and happily attended monthly luncheons until her passing. Norma’s great loves were gardening, canning, and reading. Her home was always full of beautiful flowers and plants, inside and out.  

Norma’s world revolved around her family. A few of the organizations she was involved in with her children included the Koppel Elementary PTA Officer 12 yrs., Big Beaver Falls Football Booster Club 11yrs., Beaver Falls Band Booster 4 yrs., and Koppel Cub & Girl Scouts leader. 

After all 5 children were grown she was able to devote time to her passions which included; Knotted with Love Knitting Org., Mystical Rose Prayer Org., Ellwood City Historical Society, and LMBA Women’s Bocce League just to name a few.

Norma loved camping all over Pennsylvania with family and had a wonderful place at Moraine Camplands Resort for 30 yrs. What great memories were made there.  Norma loved cooking & baking for family and friends and her recipes are LEGENDARY in Koppel and beyond.  There wasn’t a Wedding Cookie Table that she didn’t fill with her finest delicacies in 70 years.  Norma loved playing cards with her Koppel GiGi Girls monthly for over 30 years.  Her Lincoln HS girlfriends monthly also for years and continued her love of card playing with friends & family around the kitchen table. 

Norma was so talented. When her children were younger, she made most of their clothes.  Later she joined Knotted with Love org at Holy Redeemer Catholic church where she was a member.  Norma enjoyed making afghans, wash cloths and such to be given away to families in need. Intertwined with another Catholic group is The Mystical Rose Prayer org that she enjoyed weekly devotions and fellowship.  She was a devout Catholic.

Norma was the Koppel Judge of Elections for 50 years and Beaver County.  She took that job very seriously.  Norma was a lifelong, proud Democrat.

Norma loved to travel with family and friends.  What wonderful trips we have enjoyed with her. Multiple countries and at least 20 states. Such a blessing.  

Norma had a life well lived to the fullest.  Her legacy is her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, loved recipes, and great memories of all that loved her.  What an amazing mother, wife of almost 65 years to Frank, grandmother, daughter, granddaughter, sister-in-law, neighbor, and friend to all that knew her. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Frank Borroni; and stillborn daughter Rose Marie Borroni.

Norma is survived by her loving children, Frank (Mary Beth) Borroni, Valerie (Kevin) Mastalski, Lori (John) Engle, David (Jodi) Borroni, and Jeffrey (Stephanie) Borroni; grandchildren, Philip (Kate) Borroni, Elizabeth (Brennan) Gallagher, Samuel Borroni, Tracy Mastalski, Alison (John) Clutter, Kennedy Engle, Quinn Borroni, David Borroni, and Emily Borroni; great-grandchildren, Ruth Borroni, Hattie Gallagher, and Harper Gallagher; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and loyal friends.
