She also worked at the Major County Election Board.  She was a long-time member of Ames Church of Christ where she taught Sunday School and helped in the nursery. She loved arts and crafts, especially crochet and painting ceramics. She also enjoyed all kinds of puzzles. 

She is survived by her children, Larry L. Norris of Collinsville, OK, Jacque and Doug Hart of Ponca City, Susan and Craig Bymaster of Enid, and Danny J. and wife Angi Norris of Green River, Wyoming; two Step-children, Bert Gritz ands Beth Hale and husband Ron; 16 grandchidren; 33 great-grandchildren; and 10 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Harry; her husband Bob; her amazing daughter-in-law Marsha Norris; two brothers, Doyle Lee and Ray; and a sister Joan.
