Norma was raised in Fairfield Church, being active in choir and teaching Sunday school, and she particularly enjoyed church activities and get-togethers. Because of an illness, she missed confirmation as a child and was confirmed in 1987.

Norma loved to read. In her younger days she would set time aside to read to her children, sometimes reading the same book over and over.
