Norma married Thurlow Ferguson August 17, 1935 and they lived in Slaton where their 3 daughters were born. Thurlow was a railroad engineer for Santa Fe which brought them to San Angelo at various times. Thurlow passed away on December 8, 1967 and Norma soon moved to San Angelo and started working at Ethicon in 1968 as a handwinder where she had numerous years of perfect attendance until she retired in 1992. Norma was lovingly called "Granny" by her family and was known for making delicious pies. While she stopped making pies after she turned 100, she continued to oversee her great granddaughters, teaching them how to make the pies. She enjoyed working in her yard and growing roses. She also loved trains and has them scattered throughout her house in various forms. She was a strong woman who loved her family and had fun celebrating her 100th birthday while in quarantine and then her 101st birthday with her family.
