Norma was quite intelligent, and it was well-known that she had an awesome recollection for spelling. She often wooed those around her with mastery of words. She challenged her mind regularly playing along to Jeopardy. Her work with arts and crafts was extremely therapeutic as she spent countless hours tediously clearing her mind by creating beautiful and unique pieces.
