Norma and her husband owned Century Softwater Company in South Bend where Norma served as the office manager for many years. She enjoyed spending time boating with her family and friends on the St. Joe River, snowmobiling in Michigan and traveling with her husband in their R.V. Norma was an immaculate housekeeper, even up to recent years. She loved sitting on her deck watching boats go by with her family and her beloved dog Sparky sitting on her lap.
