Norma lived a life of serving others. She had an in home daycare and later took care of elderly people so they could stay at home in their homes, most until they passed. But what Norma loved best was having a house where her children and their friends could hang out. She was remembered for many generations of fun. She loved taking her sons and grandchildren to Crawford Park to spend time in and teach them about nature. She was very creative with everything from dried flower arrangements to worm art using real worms to paint for her. Because she didnt drive she was seen walking all over town, for a long time up to ten miles a day. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
