She was born in Framingham, Mass., on July 20, 1933, one of three children born to Harold and Leora (Leavitt) Maxwell. When she was an infant, her parents moved the family to Turner.

Among her favorite enjoyments were quality times with family, occasional trips to Hollywood Slots and Oxford Casino and the company of her dogs, King, King II and Toby. She loved all animals and birds, and even raised a baby goat many years ago, which she named Columbo. Norma was a loving, devoted and hardworking wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be dearly missed.
