Norma T. Kostecka, a longtime advertising director who in October 2020 became publisher of the North Bay Business Journal, died Wednesday of breast cancer at her home in Napa. She was 58.

A story on its website states, “Though Kostecka’s tenure at the Business Journal was short, Anthony Borders, editor and event content manager, said she made an impact.

“‘Norma came in and quickly injected energy and enthusiasm in everyone she worked with. She connected with people by listening and encouraging them from the start’ Borders said. ‘She was always free to give a ‘good work’ pat on the back. We are saddened someone so full of positive energy is no longer with us, but heartened by her spirit, which will remain with us.’

“Kostecka was a newspaper veteran who took over the business publication following the December retirement of longtime publisher, Brad Bollinger.”
