Norma was born December 13th 1931 to William and Helen (Andresen) Demke. She was raised in rural Hubbard and graduated from Hubbard High School in 1949.

 

She married Charles Eriksen on June 18th 1950 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hubbard. To this union, four boys were born. Norma and Chuck raised their family in rural Hubbard. She worked side by side on the farm as well as part time as a mail carrier which later transitioned to Postmaster of Hubbard Post Office. 

 

Norma was a lifetime member of Trinity Lutheran Church where she served in any capacity needed, especially dishwashing at the annual breakfast. She was a member of Harty McNally Legion Auxiliary and Hillside Extension Club.

 

Charles died January 17th 2007 and she moved to town where she enjoyed time with her grandkids, sister, and many friends she made throughout her life.  She was well known for her positive outlook and endless words of encouragement. Her time as Postmaster was spent delivering mail but more importantly good advice. 

 

She was an encourager to many and the very best Grandma her grandchildren ever knew. They will all gladly attest to that!
