Norma worked in the telecommunication industry for over 35 years, retiring in 1998. She was very active in the lives of her children, grandchildren and great-grand-children.

Her capacity for love was immense. She tirelessly served many people throughout her entire adult life who needed extra support during difficult times, regardless of her own challenges along the way. She never missed a sporting event for a grandchild or a baby gift for a dear friend's grandchild. Norma was an active member at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and continued her love of all things flowering, by taking a job at local flower venues during the spring and early summer months during the last few years she was able. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
