My Sympathies to you all. I worked with Norma at First Dakota. I was in our Mitchell location, but traveled to Yankton quite often. Whenever seeing her in the hall or at her desk she always had a smile and a Hi! She was a welcomeing face at First Dakota. I am sorry for your loss.
My sweet aunt Norma, what a wonderful smile and laugh! That's what I remember the most. She will be missed by all and my thoughts and prayers go out to all who loved her and knew her.
My dear Aunt Norma, I will always remember that wonderful laugh she had whenever I saw her. May she find eternal rest with mom and aunt Judy, grandpa and grandma. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who loved her and knew her.
