Norma was born on March 18, 1934 in rural Ogden, a daughter of William and Margaret (Osterbur) Frerichs. She was the youngest of 11 siblings.
Survivors include: her husband, Jean; step-son, Guy (Julie) Davis; sister, Martha Bruns; step-daughters, Ann (Dan) Saban and JoEllen Davis; 5 step grandchildren; 7 step great grandchildren and a large amount of nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her first husband, Glenn Hawkins, 7 brothers, 2 sisters and 4 nephews.
Norma enjoyed Illini sports and was very fond of her Cubbies baseball team and was often teased by her family members who rooted for the 'other team'. She also enjoyed attending her family reunions and continuing the tradition was very important to her.
Norma was a founding member of the Dewey Country Club and truly loved her dog, Ozzie.
Norma's family would like to extend a heartfelt 'Thank You' to Country Health Nursing Home and Carle Hospice for their love and support during this difficult time.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Norma's name to New Beginnings Lutheran Church in Mahomet, Country Health Nursing Home in Gifford or Carle Hospice in Urbana.
