In December of 2017, Norma moved from Columbus to Park Villa in Stromsburg. She was an avid Husker fan of football, basketball and volleyball. She loved flowers, small animals, (especially dogs), listening to music and putting puzzles together. Cooking and baking were a couple of her favorite pastimes.
