Norma loved life and lived it to the fullest in her 90 plus years. She enjoyed dancing, cooking and playing a good card game. Her greatest love, besides her family was her love of singing and encouraging others to join in. She was married twice to two very different and special men. Norma created memories for her family and friends that will be cherished by all. Though we are sad now, she would want us to continue her legacy of enjoying life with great zest and joy. She was a member of First Baptist Church - Waterloo, IL.
