Norma graduated from Troup High School in 1947 as the Salutatorian at the age of 16. Her father felt she was too young to go to college and the small scholarship she received was not enough to pay for college. She took advantage of a course in Business Machines and Speech at New London High School. After turning 17, she secured a job as a bookkeeper with an insurance company Oklahoma City, OK. While attending church in 1949, she met Clifford D. Horn who was a skilled railroad machinist with The MKT (Katy) railroad). They were married on August 17, 1949 and in 1958 moved to Kermit, TX. She became a licensed vocational nurse finishing at the top of her class. She was a nurse at Memorial Hospital in Kermit, TX and then became the Hospital Purchasing Agent until she retired. Her three children graduated from Kermit High School. Upon her husband's retirement, they moved to Las Cruces, NM to build a house next to her eldest son. Upon her husband Clifford's death, she moved to Mansfield, TX to live near her daughter. Eventually she moved to Killeen, TX to be near her granddaughter's family. She was active in church each place she lived and taught adult bible classes in nursing homes and her churches, and supported the churches and missions. She lived 6 years in Harker Heights, TX with her son Clifford R. Horn and his wife Katie Horn until dementia eventually caused her to reside at Indian Oaks Living Center, Harker Heights, TX.

On February 2, 2020 she lost her battle with dementia and finally contracted the flu and passed in a few days to be with her Jesus and all who have gone before. Norma was loved by all.
