Normandie Lee (Frey) Pollitt, loved children

July 28, 2020

Normandie Lee (Frey) Pollitt, 77, of Claymont passed away peacefully Tuesday, July 21, 2020, surrounded by her family.

Normandie was born to the late Jean and Chester Frey. Upon graduation from Claymont High School in 1960 she worked briefly for Colonial Chevrolet before marrying Leonard Pollitt in 1962.  She was a devoted wife and mother to her four children, Kelley Kosinski (Andy), Kerri Heaney, Lenny Pollitt (Amy), Colleen Delp (Brian), as well as her seven grandchildren Tori, Searra, Savannah, Sean, T.J., Brianna, Brandon; her husband Leonard Pollitt; and sister Stephanie Campbell.  

Normandie's happiest times were spent at Holy Rosary Elementary School as a lunchroom mom embracing all the children as her own. "Mrs. P" was always available with her caring and loving spirit which earned her the title of the "Neighborhood Mom."  She touched many young lives over the years, and will be remembered for her kind nature, joyful laugh and impromptu ice cream trips.  After raising her children, Normandie lived with her mother in Millville, where she once again embraced her love of children, taking on a job caring for the infants at Hickory Tree Daycare. After retiring, she moved to Wilmington to live with her eldest daughter and son-in-law. 

Normandie will live on in the hearts of many who loved her and will be dearly missed by all, especially her children.

Private services will be held.  Her final resting place will be at The Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Dagsboro.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made to the Delaware Humane Association.
