Norma and Floyd enjoyed traveling in their motorhome, creating wooden yard ornaments, playing and beating everyone at various card games, and helping their neighbors in many and varied ways. Norma was also a great source of wisdom when it came to crafting and home remedies. Norma was a person who never said an unkind word and was liked by all who knew her. She had a well-lived life.
