Norma was born in Chili, Ohio and moved to Canton as a small child. She worked at Wilson Rubber for 20 years and retired from Plain Local Schools. After marrying Richard, she put all her energies into raising her children. Her pride and joy was cooking for family and friends. Norma was an avid sports fan, particularly of the Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns. Her card playing skills were superb.
