Norma was born to Otto Leman Hadley Farman and Charity Louise Bradley Farman on June 28, 1945 in Caldwell, Idaho. She was raised in rural western Idaho where she met and married Orvin Jorgensen. They raised their 6 children in Dubois where Norma befriended all she met. She served her neighbors through her church, in 4-H and in a myriad of ways on her own.

Norma loved the outdoors as evidenced by her gardens and love of animals (especially horses). She was a skilled homemaker baking bread, canning fruit, crocheting and quilting. She enjoyed reading, singing, playing piano/organ and especially making the world a magically fun place for children. She radiated smiles and positive words to everyone. She served an LDS mission with her husband to the Cebu Philippines Temple Mission after serving as a temple worker in the Idaho Falls Temple.

Norma is survived by her husband Orvin, sons Greg and Cory (Tamara) Jorgensen of Idaho Falls, daughters Shari (Wayne) Edwards of Provo, Crystal (Wade) Lowder of Pocatello, Raelyn (Phillip) Wilding of Rexburg and Kayla (Dustin) DeCoria of Idaho Falls and sisters Sheryl Farman, Colleen (Ken) Maughan, and Vickie (Joly) Walker.
