She is preceded in death by parents, Archie P. and Sophie Ledbetter, infant son Nathan, and eleven siblings. She graduated from Mt. Pleasant High school and California State University. She retired from SMUD in 2006. Norma enjoyed reading, puzzles, and being home with her Yorkie. The greatest joy of her life was her family – especially her grandchildren, who lovingly called her “Grams.” She attended Downtown Baptist Church, where her husband has pastored for over forty-three years. After many years of illness, she took her last breath surrounded by her family. She is finally in perfect peace in the arms of Jesus.
