Norma V. Nevin, 93, homemaker and election judge

August 25, 2006

Norma V. Nevin, a homemaker, volunteer and longtime Hampden resident, died of heart failure Monday at Keswick Multi-Care Center. She was 93.

Norma Victoria Harman was born in Baltimore and raised in Remington. She left the city's Margaret Brent School after the eighth grade and worked in a beauty salon to help support her family.

In 1932, she married Paul J. "Bunny" Nevin, and settled into a home on West 33rd Street -- remaining there until 1993, when they moved to a senior citizens home in Roland Park.

During World War II, Mrs. Nevin worked at the Glenn L. Martin Co. plant in Middle River building airplanes, and during the early 1960s, she worked as an assistant to the clerk of Baltimore's Court of Common Pleas.

Her husband, who headed Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.'s collection department, died in 1995.

A Democrat, Mrs. Nevin was an election judge in Hampden for 20 years. She had participated in the Mother's March of Dimes campaigns and Baltimore Is Beautiful campaigns during the mayoral administrations of William Donald Schaefer and Clarence H. Du Burns.

She was a communicant and volunteer at St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Church, 1008 W. 37th St., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. today.

Surviving are two sons, retired city police officers Leander Sherman "Bunny" Nevin of Baltimore and Richard Donald Nevin of Westminster; a daughter, Carol "Sue" Abromaitis of Anneslie; seven grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
