Norma was born on October 27, 1931 in Lusk, Wyoming to Norman L. and Nina A. (Hopkins) Roth.   She received her education in the Niobrara Public Schools, graduating with the Class of 1950.  Norma married the love of her life, Marvin D. Johnson on December 2, 1950.  She was a proud mother of seven children, and in 1959, the family moved to South Sioux City, Nebraska.

Norma worked at Park Plaza Restaurant and Motel, Gambles Store, and Region IV throughout her career.  After becoming a grandmother, she became a daycare provider for many years.  Norma donated 10 gallons of blood to the Siouxland Blood Bank, was a 50-year member of the South Sioux City Volunteer Women’s Auxiliary, fulfilling each office within the organization.  Neighbors, friends, and especially family, remember Norma for her coffee and homemade baked goods.   She was an amazing cook, loved to sew, and let’s not forget, she was an avid Nebraska Cornhusker fan, “Go Big Red!”
