Norma in her younger years enjoyed sewing, ceramics, crocheting, yardwork and cooking/baking for family and friends. Norma was a cleaner. She thought everything had its place. It made her nervous when things where out of place.
She devoted her life to her husband, children and grandchildren and loved spending time with them. She would never pass on a chance to help her kids or spend time with her grandkids. She was a devoted mother always putting her children first. She always was ready to keep any of the grandkids when they were sick or need to go to the doctor.
