Bianca Beret Norman, 47
HEREFORD — Bianca Beret Norman, 47 years old, passed away peacefully at her Hereford home on November 5, 2020. A memorial will be planned for a time when the world is safer for all living things, as Bianca would have wished.
Bianca was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota, on February 28, 1973 to Ross Norman and Delrita Rudnitski. She spent much of her adult life living in Bisbee and Hereford, Arizona. She also lived for several years in Simi Valley, California. Survivors include her brother, Karma Norman of Seattle, Washington; and father, Ross Norman of Oro Valley, Arizona; as well as her beloved horses, Cricket and Olive, and treasured dogs, Abby, Freya and Lupe.
Bianca is also loved and missed by numerous friends in Minnesota, California, and Bisbee, as well as places throughout the world. She is remembered for her art, passion for animals, skill with horses, and fiercely guarded independence. Her network of close friends, ‘horse people’ and fellow artists in and around Bisbee were her community, and were central to her enduring a long illness and passing exactly as she lived, with a beautiful authenticity.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Delrita Rudnitski on April 7, 2010.
