In 1941 they moved to California, returning to Menno in 1945 and eventually settling on a farm on the south western edge of Menno city limits.

Norma was an avid reader, enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, Scrabble and playing bridge with her card club group. She enjoyed music and sang with the Ladies Quartette at Salem Reformed Church where she faithfully attended. Norma is survived by a sister, Karen Steffen of Brandon, SD; two brothers, Dale (Aline) Heiser of Westland, MI and Jim (Lin) Heiser of Omaha, NE and numerous nieces and nephews.
