Norma along with her husband Gerp operated a dairy farm and she was a homemaker. 

She was a member of St. Rose Church and Ladies Sodality. 

Norma always enjoyed a good joke, a funny story, or anything that made her laugh.  She spent hours quilting, shopping, and COOKING!  Old Fashion home cooked meals were her specialty and they were always delicious.  While in the kitchen, she could be heard singing church hymns or cowboy music; or just talking with the ones she loved.  Her greatest love was for her husband and family.  She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.  She gave all of her heart and soul to make her family happy.  The many ways she touched those around her will never be forgotten.
