I consider myself a lucky young woman to have known Norma Jean. I remember sharing Saturday nights square dancing at St. Mary's Church - Pine Grove, sleepovers, and my first drive-in movie - 101 Dalmations. As a preteen, she bought me my first electric razor and then taught me how to use it, warning me not to shave my eyebrows as she mistakenly did. Summer night we spent playing tag and swinging on the porch swing chatting about boys and snarky friends. She was a sweet part of my childhood life and I will never forget her. Prayers and condolences to her family. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let the perpetual light shine upon her beautiful face.
