Norma Joseph Hart, Age 86

Norma Joseph Hart, a school psychologist for more than 20 years, was a UFT delegate and a founding member of the Hispanic Affairs and Capably Disabled committees. 

Hart was the daughter of the late David and Julia (Jarcho) Joseph and the sister of the late Arlene Ingerman. She was a strong believer in education and was proud to have obtained her college degree from Wellesley in an era when few women did so.  She later earned an MA and M.Phil. from NYU and a Psy.D. from Yeshiva University. Throughout her life she was a tenacious advocate for others, devoting herself to activities in both monolingual and bilingual general and special education. As a member of the board of the City Club of New York she directed the club’s program with city public high schools and colleges.  She was a devoted single mother who raised three sons, Michael, Steven and Andrew, and adored her two grandchildren Dylan and Molly. Norma will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother, a loyal friend, and a person who dedicated herself to trying to make the world a better place for others. Those who knew her know how clearly she succeeded. She will be missed.

As per her request contributions should be made to Wellesley College. Her family can be reached at
