Norbert F. Andry, beloved husband of Susan R. Andry (nee Blough) went to be with his Lord and
Saviour on Wednesday, August 21, 2019. Born in Chicago to Frank and Frances Andry, on
November 10, 1936, he was united in marriage to Susan on November 11, 1961 in Chicago, IL.
They were blessed with 57 years together as husband and wife.
Norb was a devoted husband to Susan and together they raised four children in Bensenville, IL.
He worked as a quality control engineer at Motorola Corporation for 38 years, retiring in 1999.
While raising their children, Norb and Sue took an active role in all of their children’s lives.
Norb was a mentor and a coach for football, baseball, and softball not only for his children, but
for many others in the Bensenville community. Norb also served as Vice President of the
Bensenville Boys Athletic Association (BBAA) while his children were active participants in youth
Norb and Sue were blessed with eleven grandchildren. His love for his grandchildren was
evident as he always looked forward to their visits and spending time with them. In retirement,
Norb enjoyed spending time reading—particularly, outside on the swing in their back yard. He
also enjoyed golf, traveling with his wife, and watching his grandchildren’s various activities.
On July 27, 2001, Norb recorded a hole-in-one at Salt Creek Golf Course using a 4 iron on the
par-three hole 5. He was an avid White Sox fan, attending a final series game with his son Jim
the year the Sox won the World Series in 2005.
