Norma was preceded in death by her siblings, parents, nephew and niece. She was a woman of many talents and interests, including gardening, sewing, Tai Chi, painting, singing, dancing and playing piano. She attended Westwood High and Chester High, as well as Chico State. She was active in her local church, Millwood Presbyterian, for many years, and made friends everywhere she went. We’ll miss her enormous love the most, as it was unending.
