Norma graduated from Harrisville High School in 1953. On Friday, Nov. 26, 1954, Norma married Leon Edward Thompson at her parent's home in Harrisville. Norma was very proud of growing up in Harrisville, the town's history, and her classmates. She served for many years on the Harrisville Alumni Association and enjoyed visiting with her friends at their biannual dinners.
During her working career, Norma was a candy-packer at George J. Howe's in Grove City. She also sold real estate for Barnes Real Estate in the Grove City office. Norma worked hard to help young families find just the right house and rejoiced with them when the perfect home was found.
Norma's last job before retirement was as an administrative assistant for her husband's business, Container Automation Technology in Grove City. Norma served on the school board of the Slippery Rock Area School District in the late 1970s. She was a member of the Highland Presbyterian Church in Slippery Rock for more than 50 years, where she served as a Sunday school teacher and a deacon.
