September 23, 1937 - May 20, 2021
Norma (Coppa) Zagaja, 83, of Rocky Hill, dear wife of the late Leonard Zagaja died Thursday, May 20, 2021. She was born in Hartford, CT, the fourth of five children of Abbondio and Mary (Lazzari) Coppa. Norma resided most her life in the south end of Hartford prior to relocating to Rocky Hill. She shared 47 years of marriage to Lenny when he predeceased her in 2005. Together, they raised four children and were extremely proud of all of them. Norma is survived by Virginia, Dr. Gregory (Virginia), Peter (Lori) and David (Aimee); nine grandchildren, Justin, Daniel, Joshua, Mia, Erica, Ciara, Sophia, Ella and Gabriel. Alas, none of her children chose to name their offspring Norma. She also leaves three great grandchildren Cameron, Bailey, Logan, and two more on the way. Also known as The Norm, Norma was a great Mom and a dear friend to many. She was a devout Catholic, very strong in her faith. Never one to shy away from expressing her opinion (whether necessary or not), Norma truly cared for her family and friends. She also is survived by her sisters Pierina Cianci and Mary Coppa Peyton. She was predeceased by her brothers Richard and Rev. Ernest J. Coppa. Norma is also survived by her in laws Jack and Roz Zagaja, Ray Kryzak and Anita Coppa. Norma worked several years for the State of Connecticut Judicial Department until her retirement. Mom and Dad so enjoyed their cottage at Lake Hayward, spending their summers there for over twenty years. Our Mom will be greatly missed. Family and friends are invited to calling hours on Monday May 24th from 5-7pm at Rose Hill Funeral Home 580 Elm St. Rocky Hill, CT 06067. A mass of Christian burial will take place on Tuesday May 25th at 10am with St. Josephine Bakhita Parish at St. James Church 767 Elm St. Rocky Hill, CT 06067.
